"If Wine is Sublime..." showcases rare books, maps, and artworks all about grapes, vineyards, and wine. The books date from the late 17th century to the present day and cover all aspects of grape growing, wine making, and medicinal usage of both the fruit and the fermented beverage. The gallery exhibition of art comes to the Lloyd from artists across the country and internationally and in a variety of media, from traditional botanical illustrations to woven tapestries, sculpture, and video installation. Check out the online gallery if you can't make it in person to see the show.
