Leslie Morgan is a Texas born artist who now resides in the Bay Area with studios in Arc Studios in San Francisco’s bustling SOMA district and River Dragon Studio near downtown Santa Cruz. She is proud to present her collection: “A Year of Water”.

“Water is my passion, my hope, my medicinal liquid! Because it connects us all and is always at risk, I seek to make work that gives the observer the depth of feelings that water evokes for me. Impressions of weightlessness, buoyancy, freedom, happiness, beauty, lightness, the awe and fear of the unknown! With great respect for water in all of its forms, I wish to emulate its powerfulness in how it makes us feel. I want those feelings to be available to us in our daily lives, to have access to in our homes. We can’t always visit a pool, a river, a stream or an ocean as often as we need to. I attempt to give the viewer a visceral sense of immersion in waters exquisite nature.”

Her collection will be on display all month, but come by Friday, June 2nd, 5:30-8:30 for an artist reception and meet her in person! We will be serving our fabulous Big Basin Vineyards wines and lovely food pairings all evening. Come Early, Stay late! Cozy up to a warm fire pit on our patio and enjoy! Open 4pm-9pm
