Wine Room Highlights:

Twisted Roots King Suite

Twisted Roots believes in letting the grapes speak for themselves. They feel that the work in the vineyard is where the wines get their flavor and overall complexity. As “Green Growers” they follow sustainable farming practices throughout the entire wine making process. In creating the Twisted Roots room, winemaker Josh Ruiz took the same philosophy to design as he does to making wines. Canvas pictures from the Twisted Roots vineyard adorn the walls, custom artwork made from barrels, rod iron and wine bottles show case the bar and more!

Ventana Vineyards:
Ventana Vineyards believes great wines are made in the vineyard, and the Ventana Vineyard has the perfect combination of water, soil, climate, art and science to create superb, world-class wines. Our success is evidenced by the number of awards that we have won over the years on wine made from this remarkable property. In fact, wines from our Ventana Vineyard have earned more medals and awards than any other single vineyard in America. When creating their Ventana Vineyards wine themed room they brought the story of the vineyard to the room.

· Custom canvas prints grace the walls telling the story of the vineyards.
· The winemaker’s story can be found on the room for all to enjoy.
· A Ventana Vineyards wine barrel has been converted into a custom snack bar full of delicious Ventana Vineyard logoed snacks and wine!
· The bed has a logoed throw and the walls have actually small vines from the vineyard affixed to them.

J. Lohr:
Flavorful wines, quite literally “wines full of flavor” are the mission at J. Lohr. J. Lohr’s unwavering focus on flavors sounds so simple, yet it’s surprisingly complex. Achieving the best flavor demands total control, every step of the way, and is the result of planting each site to its ideal grape variety and applying artisanal winemaking techniques, including extended maceration, barrel and malolactic fermentation, among others. When you stay in the J. Lohr room you soak up the flavor of the vineyard. From grapevine wreaths and a barrel on the balcony that offers the perfect table top to enjoy some wine and cheese to art from the vineyard and a custom J. Lohr wine display, you will as if you have been transported to the vineyard.
Additional Rooms with Unique Features:

· McIntyre Vineyards brought in a 5 foot vine from the vineyard that is the masthead for the bed as well as created custom glass lamps etched with the McIntyre wine label.  Truly spectacular to view!
· Cima Collina has their vineyard artist create custom painting for the room made from wine barrels and rod iron as well as creating their own logoed bed side stand.

· The Inn offers breakfast daily and wine tasting on the weekends.
· Wines that are typically available only in partner wineries’ tasting rooms are also available to guests for purchase.
· Guests can relax with a glass of wine around the inviting fire pit in the garden and enjoy live music. (available most weekends)

Artist Fawn Rogers “I Love You And That Makes Me God”

Amid the bustle of the Paris Photo VIP Opening at Paramount Studios, I sat down with artist Fawn Rogers for a chat about her new installation, works currently on view, and the crossover of public and private dialogue in art.

Los Angeles, CA, June 11, 2014 – TG: I recently had the chance to check out your installation of ten new works at The Bank showroom in downtown L.A. Can you tell us a bit about that installation?

FR: The Bank is a powerhouse space, and Jeannine Braden is great to work with. I’m excited to be showing work there, both from the Visible Light series and a couple of new paintings.

TG: In the area known as “The Vault” you have two large canvasses on either side of the entrance to a walk-in vintage bank vault. Can you tell us a bit about those works?

FR: Those two works are the first canvasses I’m showing publicly from my new project, “I Love You And That Makes Me God.” One of the elements of the new work is interaction with settings of potential worship, including financial.

TG: What other locations are you using for this work?

FR: Anyplace that houses an object of worship is fair game. Strip clubs, churches, vice-driven advertisements, etc.

TG: How does the public art interact with the video installation you’re creating?

FR: In some ways it’s a reaction. The level of intimacy of the video project is so intense, so personal, that it demanded an opposite response. This project encounters dialogue at the direct one-on-one level, and as an indeterminate public conversation.

TG: Some of those settings – strip clubs, cathedrals – might be seen as a bit controversial, right?

FR: Sure. But again, the goal of the project is to invite dialogue, not to impose meaning. Unless I get the chance to project it onto the walls of the Vatican. [Laughs]

TG: With a central statement as provocative as “I Love You And That Makes Me God,” faith, or belief, has to be part of the conversation in some way.

FR: It’s been a ride to explore.

TG: What is your experience of the faith aspect of the work, personally?

FR: The Bible, Torah, Quran – books of science? They’re texts of pervasive cultural impact. The project is not about religion, at least not in any conventional sense.

TG: What shape is the video installation aspect going to take?

FR: I’m working right now on developing a few different models. One is a small-scale installation box, designed with interior monitors and mirrored glass. The viewer approaches by putting their head inside the box to view the work. It’s very intimate, and meant to be a bit uncomfortable. The second model is a large-scale design, with dual-monitor projection spanning a space of about 800 cubic ft. It’s technically involved.

TG: You’ve mentioned a lot of social themes in conjunction with the project. If you had to summarize the work, what is “I Love You And That Makes Me God” about?

FR: I look forward to you experiencing the installation and letting me know.

Fawn Rogers is an American visual artist. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
