ANNUAL BACCHUS COMPETITION

Denbies Wine Estate held its first Bacchus Award Competition in 2003 and continues to be the highlight of the art gallery located on the first floor at Denbies, hugely popular with visitors to the estate.  It presents an opportunity for artists of all levels of experience and calibre to exhibit their work in a professional yet relaxed atmosphere.  The competition is judged by a panel of five independent judges on the first day of the competition.  The exhibition is then opened for one week to the public, who are also given the opportunity to choose their favourite piece.

The Bacchus Award 2017 is now closed. Click here to read a follow up on the Denbies Bacchus Award 2016.

Each artist has their own individual style, but all are united in their desire to paint in a modern, contemporary way.

After a very successful exhibition at Denbies last year, the group returns for a week in June to exhibit original paintings, prints and cards.

FROM POP TO SELFIE
10 – 16 July 2017

The work is a retrospective of the last 50 years and is a reflection of the changing fashions in painting during the second half of the 20th century, whilst remaining largely figurative. Subject matter is mainly portrait and landscape often reflecting Leon’s travels in Europe and India, and is always concerned with colour and image rather than style.

EMOTIVE
28 August – 3 September 2017

EMOTIVE attempts to evoke feeling in the observer. Oil Painter Julie Bond is inspired by creation, nature and their inherent power and beauty. Julie expresses this with broad brush-strokes and fluid motion, with oils on canvas, bringing the paintings alive. Ceramic artist, Faye Mayo, focuses on the female form and the fragile, temporal nature of life. With marks of the making process left visible, implying a story, her sculptures hint at the possibility of a connection with the transcendent.
