Solo show for Artist Jen Ferguson at the Brooklyn Oenology Winery Tasting Room
Williamsburg, NY – Brooklyn Oenology Winery (pronounced ‘EN-ology’, or simply ‘BOE’), a local winery which applies the work of Brooklyn artists on its bottle labels, is hosting a new wine release party and artist reception on Friday, June 22nd from 7pm – 12am in its tasting room at #209 Wythe Ave at N. 3rd St. in Williamsburg.
The party celebrates the opening of a solo exhibition of work by artist Jen Ferguson, whose watercolor paintings “Friends” and “In the Neighborhood” are featured on the 2010 Riesling and 2006 Motley Cru labels. Work by Ferguson will be on display through July 31.
To celebrate, BOE will feature $2 off glasses of 2010 Riesling, 10% off all bottles of BOE wines, and complimentary snacks will also be served. BOE winemaker Alie Shaper and Jen Ferguson will both attend and the reception is open to the public – all are invited.
Jen Ferguson’s work “Friends” is the perfect visual complement for Brooklyn Oenology’s Riesling, and is the only label art ever commissioned by BOE, specifically for the BOE ‘Friend’ Riesling Project for Pet Food Safety.
The BOE “Friend” Riesling Project for Pet Food Safety:
“Every year thousands of pets are affected by poorly made food. They are our companions and family members, sentient beings that require and deserve quality sustenance as much as humans — but there are very few regulations that govern pet food quality. In honor of my own friend, a portion of the sales of every bottle of Brooklyn Oenology ‘Friend’ Riesling will be donated to causes that support making food safe for all of our friends.” —Alie Shaper, Winemaker
