The next show from the UmbriArt Gallery will feature twelve watercolours depicting the central Italian countryside. The Associazione ARTè ‘s gallery space in Citta di Castello’s Sala di Te (Tearoom) will provide the venue.
Sala di Tè
The ex-sacristy Sant Sebastiano is a lovely venue in which to exhibit art. It is an intimate and historic space, with the aromatic scents and flavours of tea filling the air. There is a nice contemporary feel to it, blending the old structure and modern fittings.
As Lingua Piu have kindly offered to sponsor the show, it was thought that the inclusion of some additional cultural events would be good to increase interest in the exhibition.
Week long events
So … the vernisage, opening night is the 9th January, on the Sunday night (10th January) the lovely, Alison Oldham will treat us to some live piano music. The following Saturday (16th January) there is”An Evening on the Couch” as psychiatrists Dr Lepre and Schick entertain us with poetry readings in Italian and English.
Sunday the 17th is “Tea with the Winfields” as Mrs W and myself will explain the mysteries of British tea traditions and history. I’m often asked about our tea drinking activities and so this is the ideal occasion to explain the best way to drink tea.
Tea and cake
An enlightening trip through tealand, with the addition of some Victoria sponges, scones, Bara brith and cup cakes bringing an end to an exciting week.
If you find yourself in the Upper Tiber Valley or near Citta di Castello in the New Year, please call in and have a look around. Why not, grab a cuppa and five minutes break in the town’s rapidly growing art venue.
