    Kate Salenfriend
    April 1 - 30, 2016

    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.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Updates to the Bespoke Benefits Program

    As you may know, Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley is no longer a part of Bespoke Collection portfolio of brands. Ma(i)sonry has and will continue to provide the same unique lifestyle experiences and wine offerings to clients at their Yountville location, while setting the stage for new opportunities to bring Ma(i)sonry closer to you and introducing additional wine selections for your enjoyment.

    Bespoke Collection has a number of exciting projects underway and will continue to craft some of your favorite wines from Blackbird Vineyards and Recuerdo Wines, while curating the art, sculptures, and one-of-a-kind objets d'art and antiques for which ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens is known.

    Due to this shift in ownership and the evolution of the two businesses, there will be some changes to the Bespoke Benefits loyalty program. You now have two sets of benefit points to enjoy and accrue based on the sale brand. Both sets of points can be combined and used toward experiences in Napa Valley, Argentina, or in your locale. However, Ma(i)sonry purchases will no longer accrue points after October 31, 2015 and existing Ma(i)sonry points, unless redeemed for experiences, will expire 12 months from the date of last purchase or October 31, 2016, whichever comes first.

    The Bespoke Benefits loyalty program will continue as usual, accruing points for Blackbird Vineyards, Recuerdo Wines, and ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens purchases. Keep in mind that these points will begin to expire on October 31, 2015 if the date of your last purchase is greater than 12 months, but this can be offset simply by purchasing wine or art. We hope you enjoy this program and also look forward to the new Bespoke Rewards that will be available in the near future.
