Julia’s In Wallingford: Artist: Sultana A. Kaba
“An enchanted life has many moments when the heart is overwhelmed with beauty and the imagination is electrified by some haunting quality in the world or by a spirit or voice speaking from deep within a thing, a place, or a person. Enchantment may be”
– Henry Louis Mencken
Sultana A. Kaba graduated from Loyola University of Chicago with a degree in Fine Arts. She resides with her family in Bothell, Washington. Her passion is painting with her heart and she hopes that her paintings will evoke emotion in all who see it.
Wine World: Jeff Hengst. Our display of Jeff’s work will include some of his lush landscape/abstract paintings inspired by the verdant colors and pearlescent skies of Autumn in the Northwest. These works are lush and now grace many beautiful homes and businesses in the Seattle area including the Board Room for the Space Needle. We will also feature some of Jeff’s unique depictions of the fall harvest. Ever since Van Gogh’s sunflowers became famous, it has become a challenge for artists to invent their own particular vision of how to paint flowers, fruits and vegetables. Come see what Jeff has come up with. And come see how much the atmosphere of art can enhance the quality and experience of enjoying good wine.
