Tennessee Loveless to Come to Mon Ami Gabi for Art Outsiders Wine Dinner

Tennessee Loveless is an outsider.

Born severely colorblind, Loveless worked relentlessly as an artist despite failing out of art school. With no formal training, he was let down dozens of times before he his work was noticed.

Now he’s partnered with Disney and has a new collection called “Art Outsiders” on display at the ArtInsights gallery in Reston Town Center (11921 Freedom Drive), created with the collaboration of ArtInsights owner Leslie Combemale.

Both Combemale and Loveless will be at French bistro Mon Ami Gabi (11950 Democracy Drive) Tuesday at 6 p.m. for an evening of food, wine and art discussion. The Art Outsiders collection will be on display and the two will discuss the creative process behind the development of the project.

The evening will begin with a welcome reception, followed by a selection of hors d’oeuvres. In addition, attendees will be served a five-course meal paired with a boutique wine selection. Food includes a crispy goat cheese salad and charred bison rib-eye. The full menu can be found here.

“Art Outsiders”  is a collection of abstract portraits of various figures that all have one thing in common. Everyone depicted in Loveless’s collection was an outsider in their field of work, a reflection of Loveless’s own story. These portraits are people in the fields of science, art, music and beyond and each work of art displays a narrative of history, courage and perseverance. . Some notable figures include Vincent Van Gogh, David Bowie and Andy Warhol.

Tickets for the event are $75 and must be purchased in advance by calling 703-707-0233.
