Tassie palette, palate on display

The Mercury: Tassie palette, palate on display [28jul05]

TWO Tasmanian artists, one in paint and the other in food, are heading to Melbourne next week to sell Tasmania to the rest of the country.

Luke and Ainstie Wagner are the star attractions of the Tasmania -- A Sense of Place event starting at Crown Casino on August 2.

The three-week promotion is a joint venture between the casino and Tasmania's Department of Economic Development and will see the casino's seven main restaurants featuring Tasmanian produce.

Wagner, a renowned artist, has painted 10 new works, all involving food, which will be exhibited at the casino.

And for the gala opening his wife, Ainstie, executive chef at Government House, has prepared a seven-course menu inspired by the paintings.
