Napa Valley is filled with creative, passionate people. They make wine, they make food, and they make art. In this high-tech world, it's important to remember, there are still exceptional people creating beautiful artwork the old-fashioned way, by hand.

Yountville Arts and Napa Valley Open Studios present 30 Open Studio artists and their artwork, in the Yountville Community Center, Yountville, California, during the weekend of the annual "Taste of Yountville" festival on March 14, 15, and 16.
Visitors to "Taste of Yountville", in the little town with more multi-starred restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the country, can satisfy their palate with food and wine and treat their eyes by visiting the Napa Valley Open Studios exhibit. Meet and talk with Napa Valley fine artists working in a variety mediums including ceramics, painting, glasswork, jewelry, metal work, photography, wood turning and see a sampling of their work. It's the next best thing to experiencing Napa Valley Open Studios, which occurs the last 2 weekends of every September - only here, the artists are all under one roof.
On Friday March 14th, all are invited for an Opening Reception from 5:30 PM. to 7:30 PM at the Yountville Community Center, 6516 Washington Street in Yountville.
On Saturday, March 15th, artists will welcome visitors back to the Yountville Community Center, in both the Generations Room and the Community Hall, to see artwork and meet the artists. Visitors can also see artists giving painting and weaving demonstrations. Questions are welcome and invited.
On Sunday March 16th, the food and wine events may have ended, but the visual feast continues from 11 AM to 4 PM at the Community Center.
Guests can meet artists like Barbara Stafford, a weaver who works with exotic fibers, spinning her yarns from the hair of yaks, camels, bison, merino sheep and more. Barbara also brings along samples of yarns for those interested to see and feel.
For those who particularly love their food and wine in artistic form, glass artist Ed Edwards creates glass in the form of food - such as tacos, or sushi, or something equally inventive. Photographer Debbie Ames finds inspiration in the close-up patterns of winery fermentation tanks, and more. Sculptor and painter Rob Hampton, last years People's Choice award winner, shares classically painted still lives, reminiscent of Dutch masterworks.
Vineyard views are inspirational for many - guests can enjoy the vibrantly colored landscape paintings of Napa Valley's Karen Ingalls, the luminous vineyard photographs of photographer Constance Reid, and more.
