Stoller Family Estate, the largest contiguous vineyard in Oregon’s Dundee Hills and the 2014 recipient of Wine Press Northwest’s “Northwest Winery of the Year,” has launched a local artist series in its tasting room. The series debuts with the nature-inspired works of Kathleen Schildmeyer of Lake Oswego, and will change seasonally. Stoller is hosting an artist reception with Schildmeyer open to the public on Sunday, June 29 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Those who wish to attend should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-864-3404.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase some of Oregon’s most talented artists and provide a unique experience for our tasting room guests. Kathleen’s work has been celebrated throughout the Northwest and internationally, so she is a fitting first for our series.” – Stoller Marketing & Communications Manager, Betsy Hannaford
According to Schildmeyer, “My paintings are inspired by nature. When I am in the process of painting I am pulling the experience of sensations into my work, things that are felt more than seen: music, the wind, a dream. The layering of textures often makes reference to another time and place.” Schildmeyer’s work will be on display until July 27.
The next installation of the series, Tangie Pape-Belmore’s acrylic and mixed media paintings, will show from August 1 to October 5. Stoller and Pape-Belmore will host an artist reception on Sunday, August 24 from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
