Marijke’s Grove, the hilltop sculpture garden at the Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa, has a history flavored with both tragedy and triumph. But on Saturday, it will begin a hopeful new chapter with a new, two-year exhibit of eight pieces, aptly titled “Resilience.”

The winery was among the more than 5,000 structures destroyed in the Santa Rosa area in the Oct. 8, 2017, Tubbs fire, and the estimated cost of lost winery buildings came to about $15 million. The rebuilt winery reopened last December but was forced to close in March due to coronavirus concerns. Last week, on June 12, it opened again along with other wineries across the county as a new public health order took effect allowing wineries to operate tasting rooms without having to also serve food. This weekend marks the official reopening of the sculpture grove at Paradise Ridge.

“This whole exhibit is about the amazing spirit most artists have,” said Kate Eielertsen, the exhibit’s curator. “They don’t let anything stop them. They always come back with something fresh and a new way of seeing things.”
