Mumm Napa®’s Fine Art Photography Gallery to Host Exhibition of Autobiographical Photographs Taken by Legendary Singer-Songwriter Graham Nash

Over 50 photographs by legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash will be
on display in a new exhibition at the Fine Art Photography Gallery at
Mumm Napa in Rutherford. Titled My Life Through My Lens, Photographs
by Graham Nash, the exhibit runs now through January 31, 2015 at the
winery’s Fine Art Photography Gallery.
In addition to his prodigious talent for music, Graham Nash is also an
internationally renowned photographer, collector, and digital imaging
pioneer. My Life through My Lens was curated specifically for the
Fine Art Photography Gallery at Mumm Napa by Theron Kabrich of the San
Francisco Art Exchange (SFAE). This collection of over 50 images
beautifully illustrates that Nash’s celebrated talent as a compelling
storyteller seamlessly carries over into his photography. With
autobiographical intimacy, and as only Graham Nash could have
photographed them, the exhibition includes artfully crafted pictures of
friends such as David Crosby, Jerry Garcia, and Johnny Cash who have
been part of his long and influential career.
Inspired by his father, Nash began taking pictures at the age of 11.
Prompted by his friend Joni Mitchell, with whom he once lived and who
was the inspiration for his song Our House, Nash began to
exhibit his photographs in 1990. Since then his work has appeared in
solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world,
including at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Eastman House,
and the Butler Museum of American Art. His company Nash Editions’
original IRIS 3047 digital printer and one of its first published
works—Nash’s 1969 portrait of David Crosby— is now housed in the
National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution in
recognition of his revolutionary accomplishments in the fine arts and
digital printing world.
A VIP opening night artist reception with Graham Nash will be held
Thursday, September 18, 2014, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are
$55 and include sparkling wine, light hors d’oeuvres, and an autographed
paperback copy of Graham Nash’s book Wild Tales. Please call
