TOM CROSS: Paintings of Cornwall and Other Places

Our Tom Cross travel show has ended and with it the tasting of wine.

Thanks to Scarlet Wines we were able to celebrate Tom’s work in style. Each county represented in the exhibition (paintings from Cornwall, Wales, Guernsey, Sweden, Italy, The Middle East, Australia, Mexico and Belize) were brought to life by great tasting wine. At the private view Richard (below) did a bit of pairing (to wine and country) and offered cheeses, dates and breads. Tom’s painting was informed by travel from the outset and so this was a fitting context for his work and one that enabled clients and visitors to appreciate his oeuvre.
