    Kevin Box
    July 1 - 31, 2016

    Join us throughout the month of July at Axioms, where ÆRENA sculptor Kevin Box captures the duality of the fragility of paper and the strength of metals, in his diverse and stunning body of origami inspired works. After a decade spent perfecting and evolving his signature technique, Box is now able to cast paper in bronze, stainless steel, and aluminum, giving us sculpture that emanates both lightness and durability.

    Collaborating with world-renowned origami artists is the hallmark of Box's sculptures, and you can see their combined skill in monumental sized horses, complex unfolded castings and miniature mice. Let your heart take flight with his beloved cranes, lose yourself in his mesmerizing paper airplanes or embrace the meaning behind his renown Rock Paper Scissors series. Box's work invites you to touch and feel the sculpture just as surely as it intrigues, delights, and touches you. Contact your Art Consultant today regarding acquisition of any of these beautiful sculptures. Please also visit our gallery locations to preview the works in person, or view on our website, throughout the month of July.

    Box's “Origami in the Garden” exhibition has traveled to botanical gardens across North America since 2013, and he has more than 20 works of art in public places in the U.S. Box's art is in private and public collections throughout the world, including Morocco, Perth, and Oita, Japan, as well as The Four Seasons in Washington D.C., the Austin City Symphony in Texas, and the African American Performing Arts Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

    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.
