Paradise Ridge Winery is home to Marijke’s Grove, a sculpture exhibit nestled in a four-acre grove of ancient gnarled oaks.
Within the wooden glens are “galleries” connected by simple footpaths. Sculptures are displayed among mossy rocks and small grassy clearings in this natural outdoor gallery. Rather than acquiring a permanent sculpture collection, Marijke’s Grove supports the arts by creating an annually changing exhibit space where art, ideas and nature converge.
Marijke's Grove is open daily, during our tasting room hours.
2012 -2013 Exhibit - THE SPIRIT OF THE MAN
The Spirit of the Man is an exciting new sculpture exhibition at Paradise Ridge Winery. This two year show features 34 major works by sculptors based locally and throughout the United States.
More than an art exhibition, The Spirit of the Man honors artist and art patron Al Voigt, co-founder of the Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation, who passed away in 2011.
Al’s generosity and artistic vision are widely recognized for boosting the quality and quantity of public art in Northern California.
The show will include significant works by world-renowned sculptors that Al was involved with throughout his life. The show is centered on three genres: modern abstract; contemporary post modern; and work created for Black Rock City in the Nevada desert. The Spirit of the Man will include many new pieces created specifically for this exhibition.
