2017 Members'show "Small Work, Big Deal" Sebastopol Center for the Arts

December 8 - December 30, 2017 - Opening reception December 8, 6 - 7:30 pm

This show is the annual “family reunion”.
On Tuesday December 5, every SCA member is invited to submit one piece of art to the 2017 Member Show. No juror!
Your work will guaranteed be displayed in the gallery. Following up on a member request we increase the limited size of the work to 192 square inches (frame included), which allows work of 12” x 16” instead of 12” x 12”. A sold piece can be replaced by another piece of similar size.
The “people’s choice”, voted by the public, will receive the annual Janet and Harvey Charnofsky award of $100.
We will end the show with a gingerbread and mulled wine party on December 30, 3-4 pm. The winner will be disclosed.

What’s love got to do with it?

North Coast Artists Guild in a special showing of Mixed Media.

Love in all its various forms is undoubtedly the most driving force in human behavior. And Love is one of the most common themes in the creative arts – countless poems, operas, songs, sculptures, paintings, have been created throughout human history in every era and culture.

The focus of this show is to present artists’ interpretations of what Love is to them in whatever way individual artists wishes to approach it: personally, emotionally, intellectually, religiously, figuratively, conceptually, literally, abstractly, subconsciously, comically, tragically, satirically or even absurdly.

The Gualala Arts Center, located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, CA, is open weekdays 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and weekends from noon to 4:00 p.m., and serves the coastal communities of Northern Sonoma & Southern Mendocino Counties.
