Our friends at Cake Wines have done it again, creating a buzz in both the art and wine worlds with their annual Archi-bottle Prize. The idea is simple: unearth the most talented emerging Australian artist and give them a Cake Wines label as a canvas. This year they received 350 entries, which are slowly being leaked online by Cake, including one by perennial Lost At E Minor favourite and Archibald Prize entrant, Del Kathryn Barton, who produced a typically colourful piece that would look stunning as the label on the bottle.
Check out 10 of our favourite entries in this gallery, with 20 more to be added to this Lost At E Minor gallery over the next week. Some of these will also be on display at the finalists exhibition held at Cake Wines, 162 Redfern St, Sydney, this Friday from 6.30pm. The winner will be announced on the night, taking away $2,000 prize money with their winning artwork also going to print on Cake’s 2013 Sauvignon Blanc to be released into stores in early November.
