Art Reception with Gage Opdenbrouw

We are very excited to showcase new artwork from local artist Gage Opdenbrouw, and we invite you to join us for a reception at the tasting room on Friday, July 12th from 5-7pm, as we celebrate “Mirror in the Garden,” a stunning new solo exhibition of recent paintings.

The Mirror in the Garden spans this last year and a half, exploring what happens inside and outside the garden and the reflective nature of self. At home, when there is very little light, and also, the reflections of ourselves in the dark, as we move between grief and attempts to see the world as is.

Sonoma County landscapes play a big role, but perhaps not the precious pastoral that we often think of in pleinair paintings. These are moody seasides, dark turns in the estuary, burned out buildings, the collapsed. Landscape and flowers as figure, and figures who understand not only impermanence but eco-collapse. At times, the paintings weep. I think that the place the show will most resonate with folks is that it is deeply familiar, and done so without over explanation. Gage detests the obvious. His skill is in capturing gestures within the shadow world.” —Kelly Gray
