Imagery Art for Wine Collection: An Art and Wine Partnership

November 19, 2016 - February 12, 2017


Art and wine, so compatible it is almost a cliché, but in the case of the Imagery Art for Wine Collection, it is a partnership that has led to one of the most prestigious California art collections of the past 30 years. Begun in 1985 by celebrated vintner Joe Benziger and artist Bob Nugent, the Imagery Collection was conceived and amassed, resulting in works by a who’s who of California and nationally recognized artists.

This will be a major opportunity for the Triton Museum of Art and for the community to see so many of these artists in one place. As such, the Triton Museum of Art will devote 2/3 of its exhibition space to the exhibition. Education programs, including lectures, demonstrations, and workshops will accompany this exhibition.

Location: 1505 Warburton Avenue, Santa Clara, CA. 95050.

This past year a patron (who wishes to remain anonymous) of the Triton Museum of Art donated 30 works on paper by Doug Glovaski. Each print is a subtle abstract articulation by a master printmaker. While museums often receive donations by noted artists, it is not always that we are gifted an entire body of work by the same artist, giving us such a full-throated expression and presentation. Please join us as we celebrate the prints of Doug Glovaski, and the generous support of a genuine art patron. 1505 Warburton Avenue, Santa Clara. (408) 247-2438

Can a two bedroom apartment contain all of the love, laughs, worry and wisdom that’s about to happen?
