An art viewing and wine tasting set for Point Richmond Gallery later this month aims to ignite the senses.

Tuning into Nature: Biophilic Art, Biodynamic Wines” will feature a wine tasting alongside fresco photography by Diane Epstein Sunday, Jan. 21 from 4-6 p.m.

As the events exhibiting artist, Epstein will talk about the biophilic art movement, according to the gallery. It’s an approach to art and design rooted in the philosophy of biophilia, which advocates for the innate and healing bond between humans and nature.

“Nature-based biophilic art can stop us in our tracks,” said Epstein. “It ignites our senses and energizes our emotional, sensory and physical well-being.”

Accompanying the exhibition’s feast for the eyes will be something to stir the taste buds, courtesy of the California-based ViniCulture Wine Club. The tasting of four biodynamic wines will include two Spanish whites and two French reds: A cava by Castell d’Age, an Albariño by Envidia Cochina, a Chinon by Domaine de la Croix Marie and der Keil red by Manincor, according to the gallery.

Admission is free, while the wine tasting is $20. The Point Richmond Gallery is located at 145 West Richmond Ave. in Point Richmond. Questions? Contact [email protected].
