This December, Art in Flux Harlem and Souleo Enterprises, LLC, an event/media production company, will present Art Enology. The exhibition will feature the works of celebrated wine photographer, Charles O’Rear, the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s 40 under 40: Craft Futures artist, Joshua DeMonte and internationally acclaimed visual artist, Shantell Martin along with over twenty emerging, mid-career and established visual artists repurposing wine bottles into elaborate works of original art.
