About Jamieson Ranch Vineyards - Reata at Jamieson Ranch Vineyards is the southernmost winery in the Napa Valley, one of the world’s foremost winemaking regions.

About the Winemaker - Japanese-native Nori Nakamura was first introduced to fine wine at a young age while working at his uncle’s Italian restaurant in Tokyo. During a graduation trip to Italy, Nori tasted a phenomenal 1981 Barbaresco. It was a defining moment in his young life, and set him on a path towards a career in winemaking. He earned a sommelier certification, before transferring from Tokyo to California to assume the role of catering manager at the prestigious Hotel Nikko San Francisco. His subsequent experiences in wine country further fueled his passion, leading to cellar positions at Koves-Newlan and Pine Ridge Vineyards, and a degree in winemaking from the renowned program at the University of California at Davis.

The Park - Paintings by Erik Benson - Arsenal Gallery
Through June 20, 2013 - New York

Erik Benson's new series of paintings, created with thousands of shapes hand-cut from dried sheets of acrylic paint, depict colorful but eerily abandoned playgrounds in stark urban landscapes.

The jungle gyms appear to sit on top of the surface rather than integrating with the landscape -- a metaphor for his own painting techniques. These exquisite compositions of urban landscape will be exhibited in collaboration with Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art LLC.
