For this wine tasting experience we are leveraging the knowledge of design and art expert Rolf Goellnitz. In his Gallery of Contemporary Art (right by the freeway, plenty of free parking) we will explore a double-play of art and wine appreciation.
Please join us for this 2.5 hour event as we explore questions of the art scene in Los Angeles today, discussions of the current exhibit in Rolf's Gallery, and the background of the matching wines we are tasting this evening.
$45 with paypal prepayment as soon as you RSVP.

Images of the Sound of Silence and the Imaginary World of Taste.
Silence is the most thunderous sound of all. It is the roar of Nothing and, for this very reason, is the deafening din of Everything. Taste doesn’t sound either and yet evokes an endless flow of pictures to describe the sensation, which consequential leads to associated sounds.
Join us and experience how much Artwork and Wine have in common as you approach them with open mind and senses.
Meet Rolf Goellnitz, Art Collector, Curator and Creative Director and become familiar with his take on Contemporary Art as he guides you through the current exhibition at OMC Gallery which presents
Photography and Painting of International Artists (France, Italy, Germany and the USA)
Enjoy the color, space and energy, which are the pillars of Michael Burges’ creations. In his Reverse Glass Painting he delivers a whole gamut of new pictorial forms and elements.
(The constant change between the position of the elements in front, and in the back, or somewhere non-definably in-between, accounts for a strong dynamic appeal of the whole pictorial field. )
Feel the sensitivity of Alvin Booth’s 'Osmosis' photographs which are reducing the human form to its bare lines, and let the body dissolve into the paper like a delicate gouache.
(The exquisite tones of his images and the graceful, ghostly figures are suggestive of 19th-century photography, reflecting Booth's old-world techniques and approach to the craft.)
Dive into the silence of Florian Beckers images showing moments of darkness, which keep the fine balance between appearing and/or disappearing and make us wonder whether these quiet moments took place or were the result of blurred thoughts, as we try to remember or walk along the border of dream and reality.
Look at Euro Rotelli's photography, which is not a window on the world, but rather a window from the world onto the imagination.
