In the Main Gallery, Napa Valley Museum Yountville will present: California Dreamin’. Melissa Chandon and Matt Rogers’ joint exhibition at the Napa Valley Museum Yountville embodies the idyllic “California Dream” of freedom and vitality. Paintings of palm trees, lifeguard stations, and woody-style station wagons carrying surfboards set against expansive blue skies capture the indelible collective memory of the relaxed, carefree beach lifestyle that took hold of imaginations around the world in the 1960s.

With their vivid dream-like palettes and sense of light and air, Chandon and Rogers have each earned reputations for depicting the essential character of the Golden Coast. This exhibition – which also includes rare woody cars, surfboards and other elements of surf culture – unites the artists’ visions, celebrating a moment in time when the world collectively dreamed of the fun and sun of 1960’s California, and embraced its spirit of love, peace, and connection. </p.

Opening Celebration on Saturday, September 1 from 5 – 7:30 pm is FREE for members; $20 for Non-Members.
