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.

It has been the season of pink sunshine here in Geyserville and the rest of northern Sonoma County and beyond—which sounds so cheery. Unfortunately, it’s what I notice when look at the mix of sunlight and shadows on the ground when there is either visible or invisible smoke lingering in the air, which has been the case for weeks now.

I love September! For me I can just feel that change is around the corner. We start to think about the many fall time events and slow down a little.

When Julia witnessed Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone, she was smitten. The regularity and sheer energy of this geothermal natural wonder struck something deep in her. She returned to California and was determined to recapture the magic it sparked for her. She painted geysers, designed jewelry with geyser imagery, created mini-sculptures of geysers, included geysers on her sewn ukulele pillows, and applied the theme to her entry in the 2018 Sonoma Community Center’s Trashion Fashion by creating a “Geyser Gown”.

Artists are invited to propose works of a restorative nature for use in the EcoArts 2.0 sculpture walk.  This may include sculptures that provide "architecture" or habitat--to replace trees that are gone, and certain replanting efforts that have minor earth disturbance.

Summer days in Geyserville have been hot but beautiful. We’ve been having temperatures clinging to the 90s and, oddly, often rising even higher on the weekends. I heard once in Southern California that automobile traffic patterns can also affect weather, but in the relatively low-traffic area of Geyserville, I wouldn’t expect that to necessarily hold true.These weekend heat spells make me wonder.

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.
