Auberge du Soleil is home to one of the most comprehensive collections of outdoor sculpture ever assembled for viewing and sale. Featuring nearly 110 works by 65 California sculptors, the open-air gallery showcases figurative and abstract sculpture in all media, including bronze, steel, ceramic, stone and wood, amid terraced rock walls created by hand in the Mediterranean tradition.
The works are placed throughout Auberge du Soleil’s 33-acre grounds, where meandering paths, dappled sunlight, a flowing stream and age-old olive trees provide a contrast between art and nature that intensifies appreciation of both.
The Sculpture Gallery is a marvel of landscaping and stone masonry, with sculptures thoughtfully situated so they harmoniously coexist with the olive trees. More than 500 tons of fieldstone was fashioned into mortar-less stone walls extending more than 7,000 feet. A stream flows through the center of the grove creating a pleasant, audible trickle, creating an oasis that remains a lush backdrop for the art even during the long dry Napa summer.
The Auberge du Soleil Sculpture gallery is owned by ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens and is open to guests of Auberge du Soleil or by appointment. All the works are available for purchase and commissions can be arranged. For more information or to schedule a visit, please call (707) 963-8800
