Marking its 40th anniversary with a four-city art competition, Jordan has sourced the best entries from Southern California-based artists for a one-night-only exhibition and wine tasting
WHAT: In honor of its 40th anniversary, California icon Jordan Vineyard & Winery has created the 4 on 4 Art Competition, a four-city program that challenges local artists to create a commemorative piece that blends the elegance of Jordan wines with the flavor of each city. 4 on 4 Los Angeles is organized by LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions).
A collection of the top Los Angeles competition entries will be unveiled at 4 on 4 Top 40, a public exhibition and Jordan wine tasting event, hosted at Hadid Gallery, an up-and-coming gallery in the trendy West Hollywood Design District.
Up to $8,000 in cash prizes, commercial opportunities and publicity campaigns await the top three winners, which will be selected by a panel of expert judges—including Carol Stakenas, director of LACE, noted critic and LA Canvas art editor Shana Nys Dambrot, four-star chef at Joe’s Restaurant Joseph Miller, LA Eater editor Kat Odell, Tasting Panel managing editor David Gadd, Valentino Santa Monica owner Pierro Selvaggio, and Black Cat Gallerist and noted artist Timothy Williams. Grand prize, first runner-up and second runner-up winners will be announced at 8 p.m. during the event, as well as people’s choice award for the top artwork selected by event guests.
WHO: Artists from Los Angeles, Ventura, Orange, San Bernardino or Riverside counties have submitted artworks for consideration. The event is open to the public. Wine and art lovers may preview competition entries online after April 5: http://www.flickr.com/photos/4on4art/sets/72157628433204607/.

ABOUT JORDAN VINEYARD & WINERY
Inspired by the masterful wine, food and hospitality of France, Tom and Sally Jordan followed their hearts from Colorado to California’s bourgeoning wine country in 1972. That spring, they signed the deed on their first piece of land in Alexander Valley on the very same day their son, John, was born. They quickly planted their first vineyard with a vision for creating a singular Cabernet Sauvignon that could rival the finest wines of Bordeaux. When the first vintage of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon debuted, it was an immediate success due to its elegance and early approachability, as well as its affinity for food. The Jordan family has spent the last four decades quietly building a reputation for relentless quality, graceful ageability and remarkable consistency vintage after vintage.
