1. Strength Together by Gabe Babcock
1. Strength Together by Gabe BabcockStrength Together  //  Gabe Babcock //  powder-coated fiberglass  //  2013  //  $18,000Gabe Babcock describes this sculpture as 'balanced tension'. He explains, "From afar, the stone's levitating appearance draws the viewer closer. The stone is locked within the geometry while simultaneously acting as the keystone. It forces the viewer to slow down, observe, and question what is central; or ask, which piece is supporting the other? This frozen moment of chaos offers a revolving experience that leads the viewer to understand that everything a matter of perspective."

The Compass Needle by Walter GordinierThe Compass Needle  //  Walter Gordinier  //  laminated structural glass, Corten steel  //  2016  //   $30,000Walter Gordinier says he designed "The Compass Needle" to catch light. “As the sun tracks across the sky, the piece casts images and colors of itself and onto surrounding surfaces," he explains. "The character of the piece changes constantly depending on the time of day and where a person viewing the sculpture is standing. So as a person moves around the sculpture they will witness a constantly changing composition."SALES INFO: This work is available for sale through the Napa Art Walk program. 10% of all sales made during the exhibition support future Napa Art Walk exhibitions.

4. Color Molecules by Helle Scharling ToddColor Molecules  //  Helle Scharling Todd  //  powder coated steel, glass  //  2010  //   $15,000Helle Scharling Todd designed “Color Molecules” as “an homage to the small entities in life, ‘the molecules’”. In her work, she says,  she uses the abstract shapes of circles and semicircles as forms and then adds the different colors in glass to further convey her concept of molecules. She chose to make this abstract sculpture to show the viewer what we cannot see with our eyes; to help us shift into the “micro world”, which she considers “just as big an importance as the macro world… (and can be) also more interesting, because you have to use your imagination to understand it.”SALES INFO: This work is available for sale through the Napa Art Walk program. 10% of all sales made during the exhibition support future Napa Art Walk exhibitions.

However the most significant shift in perspective takes place when the observer realizes that ‘Squirrel’ was made entirely from a propane tank,” says artist Colin Selig. “Squirrel” is part of a collection of eco-friendly architectural objects including seating, sculpture, planters and bollards designed by the artist.In describing his creative process, Selig says he selects a regionally sourced scrap tank. Then he carefully dissects and reassembles it, with no additional reshaping of the metal, to create an eco-friendly sculpture that contains 99% post-consumer reused content. He says, “Squirrel is intended to inspire its audience to consider new possibilities for reusing materials and help conserve our planet’s dwindling natural resources.”SALES INFO: This work is available for sale through the Napa Art Walk program. 10% of all sales made during the exhibition support future Napa Art Walk exhibitions.

My intention is for this human scaled work to attract your attention from afar and hold it when close.”SALES INFO: This work is available for sale through the Napa Art Walk program. 10% of all sales made during the exhibition support future Napa Art Walk exhibitions.

7. Bone Totem by Eileen Fitz-FaulknerBone Totem  //  Eileen Fitz-Faulkner  //  concrete, steel, fiberglass, ceramic, concrete stain  //  2017  //   $7,500Inspired by North Coast Indian totem poles, Eileen Fitz-Faulkner wanted to explore the idea of structure, balance and shape in her work and in the human body.She says that the imagery for “Bone Totem” came from “thinking of our skeleton and how our bones move and change. They contain the stories of our lives. From afar, one might notice the white overall shape (of ‘Bone Totem’) but as you come closer, the various pieces take on a more individual appearance. The red interior, the ‘heart’ or the ‘marrow’ of the piece appears. The openings invite the viewer in and take the eye in new directions while the form itself frames a new perspective.”She explains that the openings in the sculpture “are about the stories (we experience) along the way.  I love the idea of balance and counterbalance and how that marries with living one’s life. From every angle, Bone Totem changes as the viewer explores it. These organic shapes began as a study of balance and counterbalance. I wanted the observer to feel the mass of forms, yet also feel the fragile or seemingly precarious nature of their alignment.”SALES INFO: This work is available for sale through the Napa Art Walk program. 10% of all sales made during the exhibition support future Napa Art Walk exhibitions.

9. The Dialogue by Todd Lawson
9. The Dialogue by Todd LawsonThe Dialogue  //  Todd LawsonTodd Lawson’s piece, “The Dialogue” plays on perspective between two chairs. He explains, “one chair is normal size and one is 9ft tall. The piece uses the landscape slopes and the manipulation of scale and perspective to create an illusion... (One part) is also just a fun big red chair.” He also wanted to create an opportunity for an adult viewer to remember a time during childhood when a chair was twice their height. When two people are seated opposite each other on the chairs, Lawson hopes to the experience “challenges the viewer’s eye as well as perception.”He says his interest in exploring scale in “The Dialogue” came from many sources, including: the use of forced perspective in the Palazzo Spada architecture in Rome, Italy; Lily Tomlin’s sketch comedy character “Edith Anne”, a 5 year old girl who sits on an oversized rocking chair to make the actress appear child-size; and the use of scaled objects in traditional Japanese garden design.SALES INFO: This work is available for sale through the Napa Art Walk program. 10% of all sales made during the exhibition support future Napa Art Walk exhibitions.

10. Solar Flare (from chaos to symmetry) by Patricia Vader
10. Solar Flare (from chaos to symmetry) by Patricia VaderSolar Flare (from chaos to symmetry)  //  Patricia Vader //  steel, aluminum  //  2015  //  $10,000Napa Art Walk alum Patricia Vader created this piece by “carefully selecting 36 pieces out of a chaotic pile of bicycle wheels.” For the top half of the sculpture she describes as a “a silvery sun perched atop a copper pedestal or fireworks burst being shot from a cannon. Consider that the sun is not in fact a simple sphere with a well-defined edge as we tend to see it when it rises or sets but a broiling chaotic self-gravitating mass with flares shooting out from its surface.”To symbolize this flare activity, Vader attached the larger wheels to a thick central rim while allowing the other, smaller wheels to turn freely. Patricia grew up in Holland and says the smaller wheels remind her of “windmills that spin in the slightest breeze”.In terms of perspective, Vader explains that, “viewing the work from the front, we see an arresting image of perfect symmetry”. However, from the side, “we see what it takes to make this symmetry: a chaotic jumble of spokes - that will appeal to anyone stoked about spokes!”
