The new Stag’s Leap Artist-in-Residence program, which offers visual, performing, and literary artists and scholars extended visits at the Stags Leap Winery in the Napa Valley, promises to become one of the Bay Area’s more coveted residencies.  Not only is the program hosted in a 19th century stone manor house in a secluded natural setting, it offers quiet and privacy (the winery is not normally open to the public). Tomorrow there will be a rare opportunity to visit when New York sculptor Robert Lobe, the second Stags Leap artist-in-residence (Paul Kos was the first) presents his work in an afternoon salon beginning at 1:00. Admission is free but reservations are required—you’ll need to get directions, anyway. (707) 299-3030 is the number to call. Visitors must be 21 years old and are asked to wear comfortable walking shoes.  The Manor House at Stags’ Leap Winery is located at 6150 Silverado Trail, Napa CA 94558.
