Geometric Reflections at Paradise Ridge Winery
Geometric Reflections: Celebrating Ten Years of Voigt Family Sculpture looks back at a decade committed to presenting large-scale sculptures in various outdoor settings, one being at Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa. During those ten years over 100 sculptures emphasizing large outdoor works created by artists of international renown have been made publicly accessible throughout the county.
This exhibition on view at Paradise Ridge showcases ten of the highly regarded artists who have been a significant part of the Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation. As a criteria for selecting the pieces guest curator, Kate Eilertsen, noted that “all ten of these highly regarded artists combine creativity with geometry, and that circles, squares, rectangles, and all of their beautiful combinations are seen in the exhibition.” The ten sculptors whose works are on view include Roger Berry, Dee Briggs, Riis Burwell, Robert Ellison, Peter Forakis, Charles Ginnever, Edwin Hamilton, Ned Kahn, Jann Nunn, and Doug Unkrey.
In 2012, the Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation partnered with the Byck family, owners of Paradise Ridge Winery, to select and present significant outdoor sculptures. Together they continue to bring world-class outdoor exhibitions to Sonoma County for locals and visitors alike.
“Working with the Voigt family has been a great pleasure for me and a very substantial benefit to the community, introducing many new artists and bringing a high level of professionalism to our sculpture project”, says Walter Byck in recognition of the partnership.
The Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation promotes an appreciation for sculpture in Sonoma County. By serving as a catalyst for sculpture installations and projects, the Foundation continually promotes the county as a destination for art lovers.
Geometric Reflections: Celebrating Ten Years of Voigt Family Sculpture continues daily through April 2017 at Paradise Ridge Winery. The winery is open to the public seven days a week and entry to the exhibition is free. For more information visit here.
