We invite you to experience our new Exhibit – RESILIENCE
Opening June 20th – with new pieces being added throughout the summer
Resilience is the ability to withstand, adapt, and grow in the face of adversity. Artists have always had an extraordinary capacity to tolerate difficult things and create art that allows us to experience joy. The five artists in this exhibition have given us sculpture that does just that. Riis Burwell, Briona Hendren, Sean Paul Lorentz, Nick Taylor, and Doug Unkrey have lived through a variety of challenges, but using their passion for the visual arts, prove that the world is filled with awe and wonder. They encourage us to accept the past, dream about the future, and enjoy the beauty around us. The Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation and Paradise Ridge Winery are pleased to present this exhibition and thank these artists for their resilience.

Art in Paradise
In 1960 Walter Byck proposed to his Dutch girlfriend Marijke Hoenselaars in a sculpture grove in the Netherlands. This was the beginning of a love affair between Marijke, Walter and art.
After moving to Sonoma County and opening Paradise Ridge Winery, Walter focused his attention on finding a place on the estate for an outdoor sculpture garden. He found the perfect location in a four-acre grove of wooden glens with ancient gnarled oaks and open meadows. These “galleries” were connected by simple footpaths. The sculptures were placed among mossy rocks and grassy clearings. After working with a number of curators, Walter began to oversee the yearly art exhibits himself. In 2006 after Marijke’s sudden passing, Walter dedicated the grove to her and it is now known as Marijke’s Grove.
Instead of permanent pieces, Marijke’s Grove supports the arts with a biennial changing exhibit. In 2012 the Byck Family began working with the Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation. Their combined efforts bring cutting edge free public art to the foothills of Sonoma County.
The gates to the estate are open to the public from 10- 4:00 daily, allowing visitors a chance to experience the art & nature of Paradise.
