Two London exhibitions: Colin Hampden-White and Barbara Christie

 Part of the CHW's exhibition:
 two whisky portraits – on the left Sean Philips (Mortlach distillery) – one of my favourites

Details of two exhibitions in London at the moment that are well worth going to see – one wine related and one not.

Firstly there are just a few days left to go and see Colin Hampden-White's portraits of wine producers at the Marylebone Hotel, 47 Welbeck Street. You find Colin's photos displayed in the corridor on the way to the restaurant and in the bar/restaurant and business centre area. There are a mix of portraits from the wine world as well as whisky. Subjects include Aubert de Villaine, Lalou Bize-Leroy and Sean Philips. Colin was a winner at the 2012 Louis Roederer awards taking the artistry of wine prize. He has just joined the Circle of Wine Writers.

To see the photo you will have to go to the Marylebone!


Barbara Christie's Light Seeping Through Windows exhibition had its private view last night. Born in 1946 Barbara was a very talented and brilliantly inventive jeweler, who very sadly died of cancer on 2nd January after a long and brave fight with her illness. The exhibition is at The Contemporary Applied Arts, 2 Percy Street, London W1. It runs until 2nd March.
