Art and Food by the Season

Experience the magic of watching an artist create a painting using colours of the season, while enjoying a lunch menu which draws inspiration from seasonal colours and produce, and is prepared specifically for you. The event is held in the artist’s home (which is also her Gallery) in the vibrant City of Fremantle.  Numbers are kept intentionally small (no more than six) to encourage participation and enhance the experience. Andriana and Gina met 25 years ago and knew that one day they would collaborate and combine their shared passions of art and food.  Finally that time has come and they have created a format that they believe is entertaining, inspiring and delicious! For a long time Andriana has offered “art” classes to those interested in the “nuts and bolts” of how to paint and those classes will continue.  However, at this event you see a relaxed Andriana at work creating a painting in front of you, explaining her thought processes and considerations in getting “paint onto canvas” in a form that pleases her (and her clients!). To complement Andriana’s presentation, Gina will prepare for you a seasonally inspired, delicious lunch.  Gina is passionate about cooking from the heart and preparing food from scratch using locally sourced and, where possible, organic ingredients that will delight your taste buds.
