The Floral Works of Artist Sarah Gabriel

As florists we draw inspiration for floral design from many sources, art being one of them. Australian artist Sarah Gabriel’s drawings capture the ‘energy’ and ‘spirit’ of her environment in the country, through her distinctive line work and use of pigmented inks.

Sarah’s original works on paper are created from her regionally based working studio in Lauriston, Central Victoria and are distributed to nominated galleries, both interstate and overseas. Sarah prints and hand colours limited edition drypoint etchings and opens her studio for small group workshops in drawing and printmaking.

Here is a glimpse of some of her fabulous works on paper….

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarcely see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.” – William Blake

On Saturday October 25th, fans of all ages will descend on Pokolbin for one of the biggest days on the Hunter’s social calendar. It’s about Music, Food, Wine and Dance, it’s Australia’s biggest mosh pit with over six hectares of freedom to enjoy a spectacular day in the fresh air and sunshine.

This year’s musical line-up is stunning – it includes James Morrison’s Big Band featuring special guest Leo Sayer, Lisa Hunt, Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows, Emma Pask, Galapagos Duck, the Australian Army Big Band and The Rehab Brass Band.

Our giveaway tickets to the Al Fresco Jazz Club offer a marqueed area off to one side of the ground.

Alfresco Jazz Club tickets consist of entry to Jazz in the Vines, reserved seating in the Jazz Club (tables of max 9, you may be sitting with new people, what a great way to meet new friends), a private fenced area, marquee, tables, chairs, and toilets.

Wine will be available for purchase within the Jazz Club area and you can pre-book a lunch Hamper for two and pick up on the day.  You are also welcome to purchase food and drinks from any of the other restaurants and wineries on-site.

Please note that the Alfresco Jazz Club is not an “A Reserve” section, but merely a more comfortable and convenient way to experience Jazz in the Vines.

If you aren’t lucky enough to win tickets then you can purchase from the official festival site jazzinthevines.com.au . Just bring a picnic and some friends, sit back and relax or party hard, the choice is yours.  The Hunter Valley’s longest running annual party….. it’s your best day out!
