Joining another great gallery! - The Riverfront, in Petaluma.

After a successful, juried show at the Riverfront Gallery in Petaluma, I was asked to join the group. Our first reception was March 12th. The owners, Lance Kuehne and Jerrie Jerné Morago, started the gallery in 2007. Both Lance and Jerrie are amazing photographers - very different from each other and myself. The Riverfront Gallery has been voted “Best Gallery in Sonoma County” at least 3 years by the Bohemian - we’ll soon see the results for 2010! Fingers Crossed x

In the short time I’ve been there they’ve had clients add two large pieces of my work to their collection. I have 5 of some of my best images there, framed in my personal eco-style frames. So, come check it out! There really are some amazing artists there!

New Gallery! The Village Gallery, in El Cerrito, CA

Very happy to be included in the opening The Village Gallery, in El Cerrito! The buildings have been owned by the Canepa family for over 60 years, and now Mark Canepa, an artist best know for his paintings and metal art, is finishing a really amazing remodel with the help of Russell Morton, general manager. It’s a large place with many rooms and much character - from what looks like a fine tasting room to an indoor representation of patio scene. It may sound eclectic, and it may be to some degree, but it really has a earthy, cohesive feel - like a stroll through a village.

Russell Morton, the general manager, also owns Russell Jacade Events, a catering company for upscale events designed specifically for the client / event. His flair for design really shines in what he’s done at the Village! Russell attended the California Culinary Academy and has been a chef at many fine establishments, including the Four Seasons.

Assisting Russell is Marika Munkres. Marika graduated from California College of the Arts and will now be the main personality greeting the public there at the Village. Marika is very bright and personable so go in and say “hi”.

The Village has done a quick blurb on some of their new artists - “Welcome New Artists”. It looks like the Grand Opening will be April 30th, 2011! After that, I, along with a couple other artists, will be featured in another show there on May 14th. This event, probably like the grand opening, won’t spare any expenses on catering - They’ll be hiring Russell Jacade Events!
