‘Ancient Myths and Vineyard Light’ Photography Exhibit to Open at Mumm Napa

A new exhibit opening March 10 at Mumm Napa’s Fine Art Photography Gallery comes to life with a stunning exploration of photographs of ancient African myths and photographer Janis Miglavs’ vineyard-related work.  The exhibit is titled ‘Ancient Myths and Vineyard Light’ and will be open to the public at Mumm Napa winery in Rutherford through October 14.

The African Myths and Vineyard Light photography exhibit will include color photographs of world-class vineyards and photo-illustrations that narrate some of Africa’s “undiscovered myths.”  Miglavs’ fine art photographs show some of the world’s best vineyards in a visually stimulating way, with dramatic pops of color and intense lighting and shadows.  Said to be the only person to have recorded such information, his photo-illustrations of African myths were inspired by his travels to African villages, where he learned of local legends and archetypal dreams from village shamans, witchdoctors and storytellers.  Miglavs has been teaching and studying photography for many years and has continued to pursue his interest in wine professionally.  His work will be available for purchase at the exhibit.

The Ancient Myths and Vineyard Light exhibit opens with a sparkling wine reception at Mumm Napa on March 10 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.  The reception and exhibit are open to the public. There is no charge to view the exhibit or attend the reception.  Mumm Napa Winery is located at 8445 Silverado Trail, Rutherford, CA  94573.
