Reserve Tasting Lounge
The Works of Jerry Garcia
from Tim and Roo Duncan’s Collection
February 4, 2016 — April, 2016
Tim and Roo Duncan are pleased to display their original artwork collection by Jerry Garcia, of Grateful Dead fame, at Cliff Lede Vineyards. Tim bought the first pieces of the collection in 1991 from Nora Sage, who played a pivotal role in Jerry’s life by helping him rediscover his love of drawing and painting following his 1986 coma. Jerry’s interest in art spanned his whole life, and pieces from his boyhood, as well as his time at art school, are represented in this collection that shows his imagination and playfulness. Tim and his family are the owners of Silver Oak and Twomey Cellars. He and Roo are “Deadheads,” and still enjoy seeing the remaining members of the Grateful Dead perform live in concert. Tim is the President of the Rex Foundation, which aims to help secure a healthy environment, promote individuality in the arts, provide support to critical and necessary social services, assist others less fortunate than ourselves, protect the rights of indigenous people and ensure their cultural survival, build a stronger community, and educate children and adults everywhere. Tim Duncan joined the Rex Foundation as a way to give back to the community that has given him so many great memories. Duncan is honored to be the President of The Rex Foundation and looks forward to continuing its important work for many years to come.
