Masi Wines Collaborates with Susan Pointblog
Is there a better pairing than art and wine? Internationally-acclaimed Coast Salish artist Susan Point was commissioned by the Italian Boscaini family to design a new wine bottle label for their Masi Costasera Contemporary Art Project.
Masi Agricola (Masi) began the project as a celebration of their expertise and cultural heritage passed down through generations. Every two years an internationally-renowned artist is selected to design a work of art to be adapted into a label for the iconic Masi wine, Costasera Amarone. Each label is meant to express the artist’s inspiration from the wine, culture and tradition of Costasera.
Traditional Legacy, Serigraph, Hand-coloured, I/VII
Susan Point created the graphic Traditional Legacy for the Masi wine label. Similar to art, wine and culture evolves over time. The piece encompasses the traditional icons of Coast Salish art, from the abstract to the figurative and embodies the artists journey from BC’s west coast to Italy.
Proceeds from the sale of the Costasera Amarone 2000 wine will be donated towards a Masi study bursary and Susan Point will select the young art student to further themselves in association with Masi.
