Featured Artists

Danielle Covet Art

Danielle Eastman

When Danielle started COVET they had the vision of creating beautifully simple housewares and decor that would exude the California lifestyle. Each piece is carefully crafted by hand in their home studio located in Napa, CA. Living and experiencing Napa has been a huge influence on their ceramics. There is such a deep connection to earth everywhere you go, from restaurants that use fresh, seasonal produce from their own gardens to the world-famous terroir that expresses itself in delicious Napa-grown wines. Even the architecture here features warm wood tones and soft, earth inspired palates. All of these elements of this beautiful place have inspired Danielle in everything they do, especially their art.

Monroe Katz Art

Monroe Katz

Monroe Katz is a rare blend of talents: a dentist by profession, and an award-winning author, painter and sculptor. His difficult emergence as an artist has been a primary subject of his writing. His debut novel, Sparring with Rembrandt, chronicled his struggles growing up in Brooklyn, caught between his love of art and the difficult post-war demands of earning a living. A chapter was awarded a coveted first prize in the Napa Valley’s Jessamyn West writing contest. Dr. Katz’s next book was a sophisticated “how to” guide for aspiring painters and sculptors, based on his own personal journey as an artist. Dare To Create, The Joys and Tortures of Learning to Paint was hailed by the Eric Hoffer Awards as one of the best art books of 2018. His poetry and artwork have won awards as well. His Rembrandt-like portrait of a young woman named Daphne was named “Best of Show” in the annual Napa Exposition. With his new book, Light and Shadow, An Artist’s Awakening, Dr. Katz plunges his sensitive hero, Norman, into the decisive phase of his artistic journey: a rigorous, and often painful apprenticeship under the wing of a bullying, troubled, but brilliant mentor named Kelly. Despite his brutal ways, Kelly brings Norman exactly what he needs: a creative liberation. Now retired from dentistry, Dr. Katz continues his creative life with his wife Joan and their extended families close by.

The exhibit is designed to educate its audience to the beauty and uniqueness that is Cambodia, its people, and the ancient city of Angkor. With a complex and difficult history, what makes Cambodia an extraordinary and resilient country is its people and the unwavering commitment to their community and future generations. The installation will include images of daily life, the floating villages, as well as images in and throughout the ancient city of Angkor.
