Tour the current exhibit of stunning oils, pastels and watercolors by Sonoma plein air artists.
The Bartholomew Estate Winery is delighted to host the Sonoma Plein Air Foundation’s exhibition of local Plein Air artists’ works on a rotating schedule in the gallery adjacent to the tasting room. Visitors can stroll through the exhibit taking their time to enjoy the art and the wine and perhaps find themselves in love with a piece to bring home. 25% of the proceeds from art sales are a tax-deductible donation that directly supports art education in local public schools and community organizations.
In 2002, local artist, Keith Wicks and community leader, Judy Vadasz founded the Sonoma Plein Air Foundation to address the lack of public school funding for the visual arts. Every year a juried group of about 35 artists from across the nation gathers in September for a one-week Festival and Art Sale. Seventeen years later, the Sonoma Plein Air Foundation has surpassed $1.4 million in funds raised for public schools and arts organizations that serve Sonoma Valley.
