Our numerous and extensive exhibitions vary throughout the year. We offer juried, invitational, curated and open submission opportunities for local, regional, national and international artists.
Our exhibitions are often augmented with lectures, panel discussions, workshops, demonstrations and musical performances. We strive to stimulate, inspire and educate; further enhancing our patron’s engagement with the arts.
This international group exhibition, juried by Bay Area artist Robin Dintiman, will include artwork that reflect scenery “from cityscapes to nature views.” Pulling together seemingly disparate works in a variety of media – hybrid video paintings, kinetic art, monoprints, woodcuts, and more – the exhibition displays artistic pieces that share “a concern for our earth” and “love for the natural world.”
The figurative oil paintings of Santa Rosa artist Valerie L. Winslow contain narrative overtones of personal anecdote and social commentary, including themes reflecting the current climate of the #Me Too movement.
In "Light/spirit/Reflect" Laurence Elias will be exhibiting imagery produced by digital printing, painting, and laser etching on laser cut mirrored acrylic sheets. Starting points include explorations of light, reflectivity, transparency, repetition, and geometric patterns and forms. Using artist-designed fixtures for off the wall attachment at unusual heights and angles, they present uncanny illusions of solid objects, as well as colorful abstract imagery.
At this party artists will gather in small groups and everyone will take a turn sitting for their group, starting with 1-minute poses and following with up to 10 minute poses. See yourself through the eyes of a variety of artists, make some new friends, and feel free to exchange portraits or at least photos/jpgs. It’s all in fun!
Bring your own art supplies, and wear distinctive clothing and hats to make it easier for people to sketch you. We’ll supply the chairs and some direction to get you started. All sketchers, beginners to pros, are welcome.
Meets in the Seb Arts Gallery. Donation to the Center is $10.
Facilitated by Susan Cornelis, email@example.com, questions welcome.
Reserve Your Spot
Novelist, poet and playwright Gertrude Stein and her brothers were avid art collectors. As she modestly comments, without her patronage some of the artists and writers that she promoted might not have emerged as they did to eventually take over the art world. With her life partner Alice B Toklas, their famous Paris Salon hosted the likes of Picasso and Matisse, artists whose works were thought to be wildly odd.
