As if Downtown Napa didn’t already have it all, the popular Napa ARTwalk is back and more exciting than ever. The 2015-2017 Napa ARTwalk – the fourth exhibition since the program began – takes a unique turn in that it’s the first to not follow a particular theme. The 14 participating artists, who are from six different western states, are showcasing a diverse collection of eye-catching pieces.

Among the very talented artists is David Boyer, who was inspired by antique industrial artifacts he found in deserts, mountains and ghost towns to create the above piece, “Getting Your Bearings.” This kinetic wind sculpture features three steel paddle wheels that turn in the wind and create an overhead kaleidoscope of light and shadow.
