CALISTOGA, CA, UNITED STATES, March 21, 2016 / -- A collaboration of artists and businesses within the entire Napa Valley will be celebrated throughout the month of April with the 6th annual Napa Valley “Arts in April” event.

April 1 – May 27: Sterling Vineyards - 500 Years of Wine in Art

As a destination located at the top of the Napa Valley, Calistoga will showcase its arts-inspired presence throughout the month, culminating with ENGAGE Art Fair, a two-day signature event of Arts in April that will be held April 30 and May 1, 10am to 4pm each day at the Napa County Fairgrounds in Calistoga. Presented by Celebrate! Napa Valley in collaboration with Arts Council Napa Valley, Visit Napa Valley and Napa Valley Museum, This annual, curated and immersive event features some of the Bay Area’s best artists, craftspeople and performers, who come to Calistoga to meet, create and engage with the public.

ENGAGE 2016 will also feature its second Artist-in-Residence, painter Angela Tirrell, a native of San Francisco who splits her time between a home in Napa and with family in Inverness. During both days of the event, Angela will be working live on one of her large abstract pieces and demonstrating how she incorporates unusual textural materials into her work (such as mica, glass, straw, raw pigments and even objects like BB-gun pellets and acupuncture needles). In her work, Angela explores the range of conditions on earth, from the brutal to the miraculous. Her creative talents extend from those in the studio to large-scale mural and decorative painting, color consulting and xeric garden design. Prior to the event, Angela will create a ‘planted painting’ in the flower beds outside the main entrance of the Tubbs Building, the Fairgrounds building where ENGAGE takes place.
