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 2018 is now open!

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.
