VIETTI WINE DINNER AT CUOCO

Cuoco is honored to host Elena Currado Vietti of Piedmont’s acclaimed Vietti Winery for a five-course wine dinner on Friday, February 7th. Chef Ron Anderson, who has recently returned from his travels in Northern Italy, is eager to replicate many of the delicious winter flavors and pairings that he discovered throughout his trip. Elena will feature five outstanding Vietti wines, including their Barolo Castiglione and Langhe Nebbiolo, both sourced from some of the most highly-prized terroirs within the Barolo winegrowing area.

For generations, Vietti Winery has achieved many revolutionary milestones from the production of one of the first Barolo crus (Rocche di Castiglione in 1965) to the single-varietal vinification of Arneis (in 1967). Elena and then entire Vietti team continue to balance the pursuit of quality with new, stimulating prospects and experiments, all while maintaining the family approach for which the winery has always been known for.

We look forward to introducing you to these incredible wines, each carefully paired with delicious Italian fare, plus a few surprises along the way. This feast should not be missed!

Featured Vietti Wines:
2018 Arneis
2017 Tre Vigne Barbera d’Asti
2016 Perbacco Langhe Nebbiolo
2015 Barolo Castiglione
2018 Moscato d’ Asti

$145 tickets can be purchased here.

Philip Govedare: New Works

Winston Wächter Fine Art Seattle is pleased to announce our first solo exhibition with artist Philip Govedare, in our West Gallery, opening January 11th, 1-3pm. Philip Govedare creates intricate, layered landscapes that are suggestive of a complex narrative of natural forms and human intervention. His paintings elicit questions about our role in nature and how our activity has reshaped the earth’s surface.

“My work is a response to landscape that is vast in scale and inspires the imagination to contemplate our place in the world, what came before us and what lies ahead. While my paintings may elicit questions about our role in nature and the transformation of the earth’s surface, they are above all, a celebration of the beauty and mystery of the earth and the natural world we inhabit.”  – Philip Govedare

Philip Govedare earned his BFA from San Francisco Art Institute and his MFA from Tyler School of Art/Temple University in Philadelphia. He has exhibited widely in the US and in Europe and his awards include an individual artist fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award in painting, and a Fellowship in Visual Arts from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. His work is on display in a permanent installation in Schiphol International Airport in Amsterdam. Most recently, Govedare’s work was shown in the SURGE Exhibition at the Museum of Northwest Art, and the Bellingham National 2019-Water’s Edge: Landscapes for Today where he was awarded 1st prize. Govedare’s work has crossed disciplines into geography and environmental science, and his collaborations include the American Association of Geographers, the Nature Conservancy, and the UW College of the Environment scientists addressing the issue of climate change and our role as a force of nature in the Anthropocene. Govedare is a Professor of art at the University of Washington.

Jessica Cantlin: Latitude

Winston Wächter Fine Art is pleased to announce Jessica Cantlin’s first main gallery solo exhibition, Latitude.

Photographer and travel writer Jessica Cantlin ventures to remote locations of the globe, capturing the striking beauty of areas most of us will never visit. Her endless sense of wonder and dedication to the road not taken creates dramatic narratives in her work where weather, land, light and sky act as characters and guides. By documenting the simultaneous peacefulness and dramatic tension of these tenuous regions, Cantlin helps us appreciate and respect the power and importance of the natural world. Cantlin’s imagery reminds us of the fragility of the earth and of the urgency to confront climate change, and all we stand to lose.

The works included in Latitude are from the artist’s recent travels to Iceland and Lençóis Maranhenses, Brazil.  A stark contrast in location, Cantlin’s photographs explore the ephemeral quality of light and color in regions that are susceptible to dramatic and transient weather conditions. As part of her continuing study of the role that weather plays in how we experience the landscape, these photographs act as witness to the sublime beauty found in some of these most vulnerable environments.

Jessica Cantlin is a fine art photographer and writer. After leaving her career as a successful attorney she searched for ways to “feed her wanderlust.” By creating the popular blog under the same name, Cantlin is able to document her travels and share her experiences with the hope of inspiring others to appreciate the beauty surrounding them.
