New York City, NY: It will come as no surprise to hear that the owners and developers of a modern, stylish wine aerator enjoy the finer thing in life – wine, beautiful glassware, fine food and fabulous art to name but a few. Having said that and as minor art collectors themselves, the owners of WineWeaver were delighted to be approached by Illustrated Gallery of Philadelphia for their New York show.
‘It’s a Man’s World, Illustration Art by and for Men’ will be showing over 100 original paintings and drawings from the Golden Age of Illustration (c 1890-1970). One might wonder what a wine aerator has to do with such a wonderful show. Ingrid Bond, one of the organizers, explained that she was very excited at the prospect of holding the show in New York and during the process of organizing she had given consideration to the presentation of the wine and thus examined a number of wine aerators before deciding to approach WineWeaver. One of the key issues for Ingrid, apart from artistic merit, was the process of delivery into the glasses. With special guest speakers at the show it was important to ensure the presentation of the wine did not interrupt their talks and thus she was looking for a wine aerator with a silent wine delivery process.
Master Sommelier, Christopher Delalonde, was also interested in the silent delivery process but for a different reason to that of the organizers of The Illustrated Gallery show. As a Master Sommelier of a fine dining restaurant in a trendy part of London and as such he is concerned that the wine should not be shocked in the process of aeration. In essence he desires the wine aeration process to be as natural and as close as possible to the process which occurs when pouring wine into a decanter. It is one of the primary reasons he always uses the WineWeaver during the aeration of his own wine tasting and declared it to be the “best wine aerator” for his wines.
Thus a meeting of two fine passions- wine and art- will occur at Illustration House on 110 W.25th St. New York. In addition to the paintings and drawings by artists such as Norman Rockwell and Joseph Kernan, there will be an unveiling of a long lost, recently restored NC Wyeth painting ‘The Christmas Ship in Old New York’, 1929, on the 14th November. The unveiling will be followed by a talk given by Andrew Bertolino of Bertolino Arts as the first guest speaker of the show.
Dr Don Stoltz, founder of the Normal Rockwell Museum at Curtis Publishing, Philadelphia, will be the second guest speaker on Thursday at 7pm. Dr Stoltz will be giving a talk on Norman Rockwell and his impact on the ‘global perspective of the American family man and America’.
Finally, Roger Reed will speak at 2pm on Saturday 17th November on ‘The Defining of the Classic Urban American Male by Artist JC Leyendecker’
Thus for four days, November 14th to 17th, New York will play host to an impressive collection of artwork featuring artists Walter Humphrey, Joseph Kernan, JC Leyendecker, Tom Lovell, Maxfield Parrish, Norman Rockwell, Leslie Thrasher, NC Wyeth amongst others.
