Elderberry Wine: Bernie's Napa Valley Art Show

Written by Chief Editor.

Eltonjohnworld.com recently revealed that Bernie Taupin has created a collection of prints celebrating his 50-year partnership with Elton as well as the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

Each title is limited to 50 pieces each.

Incidentally, if you're around the Napa Valley, you can see the art in person.

Cliff Lede Vineyards, recognised for its high-quality Bordeaux blends, is also known for its vibrant art collection. Now the winery is hosting the Northern California premiere of Reflections: The Art of Bernie Taupin. This is an array of original works and hand-signed limited editions that were inspired by hit songs written by Elton and Bernie. The exhibit is open now through the end of June 2019. All works are available for purchase.

“How do I feel about our biggest hits? How do I interpret them as I reflect upon the last 50 years of my professional life? How would I translate them...visually? I spend most of my free time creating visual art now, so I decided to create a body of work in honor of my other body of work, just this once,” says the artist.

Visitors may view the exhibit with the following extending viewing hours and tours:

 I’m Still Standing Tour
