The best way to appreciate our outdoor public art gallery is on foot or bike on the Napa Valley Vine Trail or aboard one of the Napa Valley Wine Train’s many routes. Parking is available at the Napa Valley Wine Train Station located at:

This incredible work comes from @bvalstudio:
Sacramento artist
Bryan Valenzuela
Title:  Shape Shift “The 4 images from this work are all close details taken from larger works. The chosen sections highlight the drawing technique consisting of thousands of handwritten words that carve out shape, shadow, and light, imbuing the forms with their own content. The text narrative acts as a conversation with the image, here touching on themes of transforming chaos.” It begs the viewer to stop and take a closer look!

What a shot @papernapan! @winetrain charging through #RADNapa to kick off the week! To celebrate #NapaHarvest2018 Paper Napan is offering 18% off walkabouts at papernapan.com Enter promo code CRUSH18
Another one of our utility box artists is Sacramento based artist, Annie Murphy Robinson. 
Known for her unique technique of using sandpaper as a tool to create drawings on heavy paper, she chose this artwork for the wrap project as it "was reflective of what I felt to be kind of an Americana. The images reflected a sense of the Old West, timelessness and evoke a sense of memory." Another fantastic addition to #RADNapa! 📸 by @BirdmanPhotos

Napa Artist, Oscar Aguilar's "Pentimento II" "Among masterpieces of the past, the "Pentimento" was another unexpected element that appeared due to some chemical reactions due to the oils and varnishes. These ghosts play an important role in the general vision of my work and taking advent of this effect, instead of erasing it, I leave it as an important role following the best samples of the Florentine paintings." 📸 by @birdmanphotos #RADNapa
"Wine Country is home to a thriving art community. From sculpture gardens ideal for wandering on summer days, to street art, and wineries with meticulously curated exhibits, Wine Country isn’t shy about showing off its artsy side." Thanks for featuring us @napasonomamag! 📸 by @birdmanphotos Curated by @thinkspace_art #RADNapa
Meet another utility wrap artist Blodgett Teri Photography Art 
Title: “Meld ”My art style has been developed through formal studies, curiosity, fortuitous errors, and the love and magic of photography and all arts. The fundamental basis of my work is rooted in black and white photography. The use of simple
studio lighting and infrared film gives my model's skin a glow and porcelain like appearance. At the same time the portrait’s strength is seen thru the model's; gestures and expressions.
After establishing a working print, I begin reworking the image. First, I transfer the image digitally so I can enlarge the portrait onto a larger scale. I use a number of art techniques
that I have developed. I work dyes, ink, paint, wax, charcoal, glue, and heat into the canvas. Then subtract using solvents and sand paper. Then rework the piece over and over until I
gain the right look, hopefully, of timeless beauty.” 📸 by @BirdmanPhotos
