2016 Pourings From KC Fine Art and JN Wine

Kathryn Callaghan lives and works in Co Down and creates work inspired by the beautiful world around her. Her work is created with a honey-like mix of ink and gel, which is poured freestyle onto the image surface.  Free from pencil marks, she intends to evoke a sense of energy, life and beauty for each subject. http://www.kathryncallaghan.co.uk/

As mutual wine lovers JN were excited to hear that Kathryn wanted to paint a selection of wine bottles. Alongside this, JN has also commissioned Kathryn to design the new artwork for our JN Sparkling range. We are delighted with the results. The wine labels will go into production in early Spring.

To showcase Kathryn’s new exhibition including wine, wildlife and a preview of the new JN label we are hosting a relaxed evening of art, music wine and food. Start the evening with a glass of JN sparkling and follow on with a glass of each of the wines featured in Kathryn’s new collection. There will canapés available matched to each wine. JN staff will be on hand to talk you through the wines and food matches.
