My friend Sam has touched and inspired me in ways no other friend has in all my years on this earth. She’s just a little old lady who happens to be an amazingly creative person. She embodies the word artist. Her life is making art - for decade after decade. In two and three dimensions. She lives and breathes imagination. An artist HAS to make art - that’s Sam.

Dan Kabanuck and Billy Korbus are both artists in multiple mediums.  Only recently have these neighbors and friends begun collaborating after discovering the technique of pouring paint (perhaps gleefully) on canvas.  They tell us, “We dove right in.  We love the way every piece is different.  We never know what we will get!”  Their collaboration produces truly exquisite abstracts with delicious color combinations and marvelous visual texture, often reminiscent of marbled paper.

A creative and collaborative project blending public art, youth job training, environmental stewardship and education was recently accomplished in the Historic Railroad Square area of Santa Rosa. Looking along Wilson Street at the corners of 4th and 5th Streets adjacent to Chevy’s and Aroma Roasters you will now find five storm drain curb faces adorned with environmentally-themed art. These are the first artistically painted storm drains on Santa Rosa’s 18,000 drains that connect to the 100-mile network of creeks flowing through town. The project hopes to realize real-time health benefits to local water quality and creek wildlife habitat by creating this storm drain art.

Thursday evening, Oct 25, I attended the opening of an amazing show at the Sebastopol Center of the Arts, called “Reverberations: A Visual Conversation”. The excitement and interest was palpable as I walked into the already very crowded, spacious and uplifting gallery space, half hour into the show. As in all openings I had to make my way through conversations and viewers to see the pieces. I was thrilled to get to see pieces by well- known artists such as Juan Gris, Miro, Käthe Kollwitz, Yugi Hiratsuka, Francis Bacon, Nathan Oliviera and two pottery pieces by Picasso, to name just a few.

The featured artists in the Different Perspectives show (currently at Riverfront Art Gallery in Petaluma), could hardly be more dissimilar in subjects and approaches. One gives us a scientist’s appreciation of nature; the other combines photos of posed models for a created effect.

I attended a wonderful Benefit Art Show event for the Jewish Community Free Clinic the evening of Sunday January 20, at Gallery 300. With the wonderful and eclectic art show as backdrop, there was an insightful panel discussion about "meaning behind art" with Nancy Bellen (Art & Healing), & Dennis Calabi (Art & Politics) Calabi Gallery and renowned artist Mary Vaughan. Several wonderful Sonoma County artists are showing; gallery owner and artist Jennifer Hirshfield, Christie Marks, Maggie Gallimore, Tony Speirs, Mary Vaughan, Terry Sauve, Alejandro Salazar, Ceylan Crow, and Lisa Beerntsen.
