 di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art Debuts Two Exhibitions in 2019:

Viola Frey: Center Stage
February 23–December 29, 2019
Building a Different Model: Selections from the di Rosa Collection
March 9–December 29, 2019

Napa, CA, January 31, 2019 – di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art will showcase the work of Viola Frey and its own significant collection of Northern California art in two exhibitions in 2019. On view February 23 through December 29, 2019, Viola Frey: Center Stage marks the artist’s first major institutional survey on the West Coast since 1981 and includes more than 100 works of art, offering a fresh take on Frey’s prolific and influential practice. On view March 9 through December 29, 2019, Building a Different Model: Selections from the di Rosa Collection is the first in a series of exhibitions exploring di Rosa’s remarkable holdings of Northern California art, organized by guest curators from beyond the Bay Area.
Frey, a fiercely independent artist up to her passing in 2004, is best known for her larger-than-life figurative ceramic sculptures. Viola Frey: Center Stage traces her career through a chronological progression spanning five decades. A large portion of the featured work—which includes not just ceramics, but also painting, drawing, photography, and bronze—has never been shown publicly.
Monumental ceramic works, including The Decline and Fall of Western Civilization (1992) and China Goddess Group (ca. 1979–81) will be shown alongside early works from the 1960s and 1970s, presenting an unprecedented look at the artist’s thinking and process. The large-scale presentation will occupy di Rosa’s 8,500-square-foot Gallery 2, marking the first time the gallery has been devoted to the work of a single artist. The exhibition draws from a mix of di Rosa’s extensive holdings, generous loans from Artists’ Legacy Foundation, and private collections.
“Frey’s wide-ranging interests—from identity to class, culture, consumerism, and environmental issues, with an undeniable undercurrent of feminist statement—parallel many of the pressing issues of our day,” observes curator Amy Owen. “This presentation is a long-overdue look at an artist working far ahead of her time.”
This is the first of three major solo exhibitions at di Rosa, rolling out over 2019 and 2020, focusing on singular artistic voices in Northern California art history. Exhibitions in 2020 will feature the work of Jean Conner and Deborah Remington. The series shines a light on the artists’ years living and working in the Bay Area, highlighting their shared impulse to draw inspiration from the personal, cultural, and environmental realms, and how critical aspects of the region enabled their work to develop and flourish. While their practices may not be viewed as overtly feminist, their distinct approaches to art making and their strong, independent spirits demonstrate an approach to feminism rooted in lived experience and unshakeable determination.
Viola Frey was born in Lodi, California, in 1933, and died in Oakland in 2004. She received her BFA and an honorary doctorate from California College of Arts and Crafts and attended graduate school at Tulane University. She was awarded two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, the Award of Honor in Sculpture from the San Francisco Arts Commission, and many other grants and awards. Her work is in numerous public and private collections worldwide.
This exhibition is curated by Amy Owen in conjunction with the Artists’ Legacy Foundation, Oakland.
Building a Different Model: Selections from the di Rosa Collection is the first in a series of exhibitions exploring di Rosa’s remarkable holdings of Northern California art, organized by guest curators from beyond the Bay Area.
“One of the great strengths of postwar Northern California painting and sculpture is the collective reimagining of what art and the world can be,” says di Rosa Executive Director Robert Sain. “The di Rosa collection offers a vision apart from most art histories, one led by individual sensibilities focused on building languages of communication and community.”
Curated by Dan Nadel, some 70 works by 40 artists in Building a Different Model address the world through generative visions of transformation and repair through social, physical, and ceremonial relationships. Carlos Villa and K. Lee Manuel made garments-as-art or ceremonial garb; Norman Stiegelmeyer and Robert Bechtle offer visions of psychic shifts; paintings by William Theophilus Brown, Irene Pijoan, Oliver Lee Jackson, and Joan Brown catch their subjects on the cusp of social change. Exhibited here for the first time are 12 collaborative drawings by William Allan and friends William T. Wiley, Robert Hudson, Robert Nelson, and Bill Geis, which were made for Dorothy Wiley and Gunvor Nelson’s 70-minute film Five Artists: BillBobBillBillBob (1971) about those artists and their families. These and a handful of related drawings memorialize the ethos documented in the film and remain a powerful example of the collaborative, community-based art and life that found fertile ground at di Rosa itself.
“I selected works that surprised me and might surprise a visitor based on our knowledge of the art and artists,” said Nadel. He wanted to show extra dimensions of each artist, when possible, and bring to the fore artists who are known in the Bay Area but not much outside of it, like Oliver Lee Jackson and Carlos Villa. “It was important to me that this not be another show of ‘the usual gang’ or ‘funk art,’” he says.
Nadel focuses on the idea of “repair,” guided by two works by Bill Allan and William T. Wiley that appeared in the 1969 Repair Show at Berkeley Gallery: Indian History Repair (1969) and Repair for Super Natural Events and Natural Events (1969). The theme, repairing ourselves and our communities, is emphasized through collaboration (thus the 12 collaborative drawings), ritual (Carlos Villa), spiritual awareness (Stiegelmeyer, Bechtle, Pijoan, H.C. Westermann, Gage Taylor, James Melchert) and art made for the sake of demonstrating new ways to think about life and the land around us (Allan’s Rome painting, Paul Kos’s drawings). Nadel hopes visitors will come away with a sense that art can be transformative, and that these artists were working with the intent to demonstrate its potential for personal and communal revelation.
Based in New York, writer and curator Dan Nadel has previously curated the exhibitions What Nerve! Alternative Figures in American Art: 1960 to the Present, Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Providence (2014) and Matthew Marks Gallery, New York (2015), Victor Moscoso: Psychedelic Drawings, 1967–1982, Andrew Edlin Gallery, New York (2015), Return of the Repressed: Destroy All Monsters 1973–1977, PRISM, Los Angeles (2011); Karl Wirsum: Drawings 1967–1970, Derek Eller Gallery, New York (2010), Suellen Rocca: Bare Shouldered Beauty, Matthew Marks Gallery, New York (2016); The House That Jack Built, the first major Jack Kirby retrospective, Fumetto, Lucerne, Switzerland (2010), Macronauts, Athens Biennale (2007), The Passing of Time: Michael Hurson at Work, 1971–2001, Paula Cooper Gallery, New York (2017); Gertrude Abercrombie, Karma, New York (2018), Red Grooms, Handiwork 1955–2018, Marlborough Contemporary, New York (2018); and Alan Turner: Paintings 1979–2009, Parker Gallery, Los Angeles (2018). Nadel is a frequent contributor to Artforum and the New York Review of Books and has authored the books The Collected Hairy Who Publications (Matthew Marks Gallery, 2015), Art Out of Time: Unknown Comics Visionaries 1900–1969 (Harry N. Abrams, 2006), and Dorothy and Otis: Designing the American Dream (Harper Design, 2014).
Viola Frey: Center Stage is on view February 23 through December 29, 2019. Building a Different Model: Selections from the di Rosa Collection is on view March 9 through December 29, 2019. A public reception for both exhibitions takes place Saturday, March 9, 2019, 4–5:30 p.m.

Napa Valley College Theater Performing Arts Presents
A Muse of Fire: A Performative Response at di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art
Saturday, December 1, 12:30-2:30 pm

NAPA, CA, November 23, 2018 – Students and faculty from Napa Valley College Performing Arts will share original performances that seek to make sense of what it means to live in today’s world on Saturday, December 1, from 12:30-2:30 p.m. at di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art.
Performed in repertory, these pieces live in dialogue with di Rosa’s current exhibition, Be Not Still: Living in Uncertain Times Part 2. The performances were developed under the guidance of Jennifer King, Napa Valley College Performing Arts coordinator and artistic director, and as part of a workshop with Shakespearean actor and author Ben Crystal. Crystal led an ensemble of Napa Valley College students, former students and faculty on an exploration of Shakespeare’s sonnets (44, 118, 60, 40 and 81) with themes of immigration, societal health and solidarity. From the workshop, original work was created and will be performed alongside the works of Be not Still: Living in Uncertain Times Part 2.
On view through December 30, 2018, Be Not Still is the second installment of the two-part exhibition, and blends works from the permanent collection with new projects by a fresh roster of Bay Area artists—Victor Cartagena, Ranu Mukherjee, Lava Thomas, and Lexa Walsh—each exploring a topic of their choice in response to the present sociopolitical climate. Organized by Curator Amy Owen and Assistant Curator Kara Q. Smith, with Andrea Saenz Williams, director of education and civic engagement, Be Not Still is an institution-wide initiative to support the production of new work while bringing new dynamism to di Rosa’s comprehensive collection of Northern California art. Major support for Part 2 is provided by Wanda Kownacki and Nion McEvoy. Additional support is provided by Larry S. Goldfarb, Phil Schlein and di Rosa’s Patrons Circle.
Admission to attend A Muse of Fire is $10 general; free for members, children 17 and under and Napa Valley College students with ID. Guests should arrive at least 15 minutes in advance to allow time for shuttle service from admissions to Gallery 2. For more information, visit:

di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art announces Centennial Gala Fundraiser
and Presentation of Inaugural di Rosa Award February 2, 2019

NAPA, CA (November 1, 2018) – di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art, Northern California’s destination for transformative encounters with contemporary art, announces its upcoming fundraising event. The Centennial Gala will be on Saturday, February 2, 2019 from 6-10 p.m. The event will mark the 100th year of founder Rene di Rosa’s birth and includes a seated dinner and presentation of the inaugural di Rosa Award to Bay Area art collector and philanthropist Nion McEvoy.
A forward-thinking collector and supporter of the arts, McEvoy demonstrates Rene di Rosa’s legacy of and commitment to supporting artists and bringing people together through their experimental work. Most recently, McEvoy provided major support for di Rosa’s landmark exhibition Be Not Still: Living in Uncertain Times on view through December 30, 2018. Presented in two parts, the exhibition brings new dynamism to the permanent collection, initiates exchanges about ideas that matter and demonstrates an institution-wide initiative to support the production of new work. McEvoy’s investment in artists and new ideas has significantly impacted the cultural landscape of the Bay Area and beyond. This is perhaps best exemplified by the launch of The McEvoy Foundation for the Arts, the eponymous San Francisco nonprofit presenting exhibitions and public programs that engage, expand and challenge themes present in the McEvoy Family Collection.
McEvoy has been invited to select an artist represented in his personal collection to be honored alongside him at the Centennial Gala.

di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art Debuts “Site Walk Weekends”

di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art Debuts “Site Walk Weekends”

NAPA, CA . (August 27th, 2018) – di Rosa Center For Contemporary Art, Northern California’s premier destination for transformative encounters with contemporary art, is excited to announce “di Rosa Site Walk Weekends.” di Rosa Site Walk Weekends begin Labor Day Weekend and will, for the first time in di Rosa’s history, allow guests to self-guide the entirety of the galleries and grounds.
“This is monumental for di Rosa,” says Robert Sain, Executive Director of di Rosa. “Visitors have always been able to see di Rosa’s grounds and collections with the accompaniment of a tour guide, but many have longed to explore the grounds at their own pace, and make the experience truly their own. di Rosa Site Walk Weekends allows this, and opens up di Rosa’s art and historic property to a whole new level of guest experience.”
Until now, visitors and guests to di Rosa have experienced self-guided access to the galleries and guided access only to the Sculpture Meadow and Courtyard. With the launch of di Rosa Site Walk Weekends, visitors will now be able to wander the grounds unaccompanied, exploring the Sculpture Meadow, Courtyard, and Olive Grove, in addition to Galleries 1 and 2. Visitors will also be able to enjoy the scenic walk alongside Winery Lake (approximately .5 miles one-way), or take the shuttle that travels between stops at the galleries and Courtyard in 15-minute intervals.
di Rosa Site Walk Weekends build on the success of di Rosa’s “No Reservations” campaign, which launched this past June. No Reservations allowed guests, for the first time, to self-guide through Galleries 1 and 2, without the need for a guided tour. Guests taking advantage of No Reservations were still, however, unable to visit the Sculpture Meadow or the Courtyard and were required to take the shuttle service to travel between galleries.
No Reservations was a major step forward for di Rosa’s vision and transformation from a private collection to a public institution. di Rosa Site Walk Weekends are the continuation of that transformation, allowing guests to experience the grounds and art in a multitude of new, different, and personal ways.
“di Rosa Site Walk Weekends signal a critical step toward expanding the organization’s approach to providing transformative encounters with contemporary art,” says Amy Owen, Curator at di Rosa. “We’re thrilled to offer the public more opportunities to engage with di Rosa’s rich holdings of Northern California art – many recently restored – and to freely traverse the landscape that has been the site and inspiration for pivotal works of art.”
With the launch of Site Walk Weekends, di Rosa will introduce a new re-admission ticketing policy, building off the new admissions structure introduced with “No Reservations.” With the price of admission, guests will now be able to leave and re-enter on the same day of purchase. Guests will also continue to be able to choose between self-guiding and taking a guided tour at no additional cost. General Admission is $18 for adults, $15 for seniors, military, educators and students, and is free to members, anyone age 17 or under and—for the first time—college and university faculty. Select educational programs, such as Amuse Bouche, are free with admission.
di Rosa Site Walk Weekends are offered Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10 AM to 4 PM from August 31 until October 28th, 2018. For more information, visit dirosaart.org.
