Art and Wine in Northern California
March 12 – 17, 2019

Join Art Encounter for an exciting adventure in the visual arts, along with great cuisine and wine in the Bay area and Napa Valley.   We will begin in San Francisco with visits to the newly expanded San Francisco Museum of Modern Art which closed for 3 years in order to triple its exhibition space.  Beautifully integrated with the original building designed by—-, the museum now has impressive on-going exhibits by the world’s major modern and contemporary artists.  Take this opportunity to see blockbuster shows of Gauguin and late Monet in the elegant De Young Museum situated in the beautiful Golden Gate Park. Meet artists and art collectors to get an inside view of the city’s unique vision.  Across the bay, in Oakland, we will visit an artist in her expansive home studio as well as a collection in the Oakland Hills. Then on to Napa Valley to stimulate our eyes and our pallets in wineries with art collections ranging from cutting edge to decorative.
