The Harris Gallery is a bonafide family affair, serving as both a fine art gallery and wine tasting lounge. The father and son duo are not only artists but also (with the help of their significant others), wine curators. Together they have transformed an historic building in the heart of Healdsburg into a space that brings wine tasting and viewing visual art together in a dance of the senses.
Founded over two decades ago by M.C. and his son, A3L3XZAND3R Harris, the gallery occupies two floors of the superbly restored Plaza Arts Building, with its distinctive Italianate arches, overlooking The Healdsburg Plaza. Once this historic building served as the town’s first bank. Now it provides a perfect setting for two great Northern California traditions: ART & WINE.
M.C. and A3L3XZAND3R Harris are widely collected. Their works can be found in numerous private, public and corporate collections throughout the world, yet the carefully curated gallery remains a favorite place to see their creations. The art is democratically positioned throughout the beautiful halls and anterooms and dramatized by museum lighting (and perhaps a glass of wine). A visit may be memorable.
M.C.'s works are often described as “modernist, cubist, and abstract expressionist", whereas A3L3XZAND3R’s approach, enlists “a large range from classic impressionism to abstract minimalism".
Amplifying the aesthetic experience: A3L3XZAND3R and M.C. are also showcasing fellow artists they adore..… Wine Artists!
Partnering with notable winemakers, Wells Guthrie and Leo Hansen, The Harris gallery is proud to curate a collection of special wines from these talented Wine Artists. Each bottle reflects a quality and point of view… A philosophy about creating things of beauty. It is reflected in the taste, character and expression… All with labels adorned with the painters’ signature fine art.
