Clay & Glass

July 20 – August 25, 2019

Blurring the lines between craft and fine art, this exhibit brings focus to the endless possibilities of clay and glass as creative media.  Artists combine ancient techniques and high tech knowledge, they are storytellers and futurists that show us how to look close and also think big.

This juried exhibit follows a 2 year absence after five years of curated Clay and Glass exhibits. Bringing the theme back as a juried exhibit expands the number of artists and variety of work.

Once again Michele Collier is presenting a free demonstration on sculpting with paperclay (July 26 7-9pm), as well as a two day workshop: Spontaneous Clay (July 27 & 28). More information and registration HERE

Opening Reception: Saturday, July 20, 5:00 – 7:00pm

White Crane, Wendy Spratt

The word “Animalia” evokes images of all animals; birds, bugs, reptiles, furry friends and pets, fish and fowl. It brings to mind all the wild and wonderful ways that “Animalia” have been an integral and essential part our human experience….archetypal animals, totemic animals, whimsical and sacred, silly and wise. Since the beginning humans have depended on animals for survival but have also relied on and trusted them as muses, guides and teachers. They endlessly inspire us with their beauty and teach us about how to be in this world. This show is open to artists in all media who honor our Animalia family.

Exhibition Dates: March 2 – April 14, 2019 
Saturday, March 2, 5:00 to 7:00 PM – Opening Reception, join us for this free reception honoring the artists. Wine and light refreshments will be available
Sunday, April 14, 2:00 to 4:oo PM – Closing tea, opportunity for public and artists alike to discuss animals and art techniques.


We are partnering with two organizations who specialize in animal care and preservation. A portion of the proceeds from all of the art sales in Animalia will be donated to the buyers choice: Humane Society of Sonoma County and/or Safari West Foundation.


Humane Society of Sonoma County

A Safe Haven for Animals

Ensure every animal receives protection, compassion, love and care.

Serving our community since 1931, the Humane Society of Sonoma County is a donor-supported safe haven for animals. They are dedicated to bringing people and companion animals together for a lifetime of love.

The animals in the Humane Society’s care receive medical treatment (including spay/neuter surgery), training services, and adoption assistance. HSSC believe that no effort is too great when a life is at stake. With your help, they give hope to every adoptable animal.

The Humane Society of Sonoma County employs exhaustive life-saving measures to ensure every animal receives protection, compassion, love and care. They have two locations in Sonoma County: 5345 Hwy 12 West in Santa Rosa and 555 Westside Road in Healdsburg.


Safari West Foundation

The Safari West Wildlife Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating wildlife advocates. They do so by providing an ongoing series of wildlife education programs for people of all ages at the Safari West Wildlife Preserve. Sponsored class trips, a Jr Keeper program for kids, and scholarships all contribute to that goal. Through the foundation, qualified schools with no budget for field trips can also experience the joy and benefit from the knowledge that comes from a class visit.

Dozens of species of mammals, birds, and reptiles from Africa are available for face-to-face encounters, supported by helpful Safari West staff members. Safari West is also involved in conservation breeding to help bolster populations of endangered species such as the waldrapp ibis, addax antelope, Nile lechwe, and others.
