About The Event

Cocktails and Conversation

June 1st // 18:30-20:30

Join us for a networking event without the early start! Artizan Gallery welcomes you to the 2018 season of Cocktails and Conversation.

This year, we’ll be inviting you to exclusively preview our monthly exhibitions before they open to the public with bespoke cocktails prepared by the legendary local team from Panache, and in addition will be welcoming an exciting line up of speakers to deliver inspiring talks to benefit your businesses. Finally, we’ll wrap up each event with a cocktail demonstration from our talented mixologists!

Come and see what the event could offer your business, whilst enjoying Cocktails and Conversation!

About the Evening

Tickets include a welcome “Bubbles” Cocktail and drinks token for a second drink from the menu. Every month, we’ll have a new menu of four cocktails, all designed by our mixologists to complement the exhibition. We’ll be picking a different spirit each time and non-alcoholic options will also be available.

About our Speaker

This months speaker will be Carolyn Custerson, Chief Executive of the new English Riviera Bid Company. With over 35 years’ experience working in the UK tourism industry, Carolyn was appointed to this new post in January 2017. The Company is Torbay's official Destination Marketing Organisation with the responsibility of promoting and monitoring the our tourism offer both across the UK and Internationally.

Carolyn will be telling us how plans are progressing now that the BID Company is into it’s second year, what innovations have already been introduced and the impact that they are having on Tourism in the Bay. She will also tell us about some key events happening here in 2018 that we can all get involved with either as businesses directly working in tourism or as those who provide crucial services to those businesses.

About the Exhibition

Devon artist Sue Luxton joins Artizan Gallery in June for an exhibition of recent works based on drawings made on a small Greek Island in the Dodecanese, a destination often visited.

Painting now for over 20 years Sue produces scenes captured in sketchbooks from her travels, often recalling scenes for a work many years after they were first drawn. Some observations, people in particular, are revisited time and time again. Subjects and lives from London, New York Tokyo and many other cities reside in these pages, waiting to be found at the right moment.

Capturing the energy of a space through this process is critical to Sue, achieved through the right balance of shape and colour. Oils, pastels and other media are called upon, dictated by the subject of the piece. Each has a unique energy, colours selected carefully to offer a vocabulary of serenity or rush, heat or cool, expanse or confinement.

The exhibition will also feature ceramic works of Tim Luxton.
