Robert Mondavi Winery will debut a new art exhibit in March featuring the paintings of three
California artists. The exhibit includes the work of Margrit Mondavi, Thomas Bartlett, and
Jim Evans, and the exhibit will be on display from March 3 to May 1, 2014.
Born and educated in Switzerland, Margrit Mondavi is one of Napa Valley’s most notable
personalities. She is a longtime advocate for the arts and serves as Robert Mondavi Winery’s vice
president of cultural affairs. An artist herself, she paints watercolors inspired by everyday life.
Raised in the Napa Valley, Thomas Bartlett was educated at the California College of the Arts.
An internationally recognized interior designer, he is passionate about painting and drawing.
Jim Evans was raised on a ranch near San Simeon and studied at California College of Arts in
the 1950s. After a career in the antique business, he pursued his interest in watercolors and oil
paintings. He lives in Cambria and owns an antique shop called Bucket of Blood.
The artwork will be available for complimentary viewing during winery hours, 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. daily. Appointments are strongly suggested. Robert Mondavi Winery is located at
