Arts in April Artist Talks
April 9th and 23rd at 1:30pm | 1354 Main Street, St. Helena
April 16th at 1:30pm | 115 Plaza Street, Healdsburg
Join us throughout the month of April for Perennial as we take a glistening stroll through the most recent body of work by wine country's revered artist, Kate Salenfriend.
Follow her at dusk or dawn, as she takes you on a tour across a visual escape through the rows of olive trees swathed in fog, that make up early mornings and twilights in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.
Inspired by the scarcely known landscape works of one of her most admired predecessors, Gustav Klimt, Salenfriend's interpretations seize the mood and atmospheric aspect of a walk in wine country, leaving the viewer with an ethereal and inspiringly beautiful remembrance of time spent in the valley.
Her depiction of light, bent by the mist and movement on the leaves of the trees from a gentle breeze, is depicted through techniques that utilize copper leafing and minute brush strokes that wash over the entire scene. In this body of work, Salenfriend instantly transports us to one of the most beautiful places on earth. Contact your art consultant today to reserve a space at one of the artist talks on April 9th, 16th, or 23rd at 1:30pm paired with a glass of Blackbird Vineyards Rosé, or to discuss acquisition or obtain a complete collections list. Visit us at all of our locations throughout the month of April, including our newest gallery and showroom located at 6795 Washington Street in Yountville to view these luminous works.
Salenfriend's works have been exhibited or acquired by Francis Ford Coppola Winery, (formerly Chateau Souverain), the Getty Family Trust, Darioush, Skipstone Ranch, Bouchaine Vineyards, as part of the art collection of the new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, and in many important private collections throughout the country.
