Tasting wine for Artscape


April 29, 2001|By Sloane Brown

Visit the Cloisters -- taste the world. At least, so it seemed at the third annual Wine Arts Tasting benefiting Artscape. Each room in the medieval building featured food from a different country, with wines to match.

And then there were the tourists -- 330 of them taking the trip, finding plenty of friends along the way.

Friends like: Franklin McNeil Jr., Mark Kochevar and City Councilwoman Catherine E. Pugh, event co- chairs; Claudia Bismark, Wanda Q. Draper, Rachel Eisler, Bill Fine, Dana Karangelen, Kathryn Norris, Barbara Redmond, Serge Reveille and Clair Zamoiski and Tommy Segal, event committee members; John Galleazzi, University of Maryland School of Medicine assistant dean; Pamela Johnson, Baltimore schools development director; Avis Naomi Smith, Baltimore International College student; Dr. Adam Basner, Sinai Hospital plastic surgery division head; Dana Durrett, Apex Drapery interior designer; Bob Groth, Flying Fruit Fantasy founder; Rhea Feikin, Baltimore actress; Jean Wyman, Good Thinking Inc. president; Almie McIntyre Jr., McIntyre Financial Group president; Joe Werner, Towson Interpark president; Chuck Nabit, Southport Financial CEO; and Bradley Alston, YMCA of Central Maryland project director.

All the visitors even got souvenirs -- corkscrews with Artscape logos. However, Artscape nabbed the best gift of all -- $29,000 raised for this summer's art festival.
