Argyle Art of Sparkling Scholarship Winners Revealed

September 16, 2019

Olivia Harwood, Haley Howell, Lydia Mercer

Congratulations to students Olivia Harwood, Haley Howell, and Lydia Mercer, the student artists who were selected for Argyle Scholarships and whose art works will grace wine labels in the special 2019 Art of Sparkling Set. This partnership between Argyle winery and Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) is now in its fourth year.


Haley Howell's from here, upwards was created using intaglio hardground etching techniques. Howell’s label explores the enigmatic relationship between humans and nature during the wine growing process.

Incorporating saturated colors and an array of industrial, natural and atmospheric patterns, Olivia Harwood’s surreal label represents growth within the soil as part of the wider world of winemaking.

Influenced by the architecture of the Argyle Tasting House, LydiaMercer’s label utilizes a combination of digital and cyanotype processes to explore the nature of creation in winemaking.
