SOFA Third Thursday tonight, painting classes, events and more

Happy New Year from Saltworkstudio!  I feel so, well, grateful, for everyone who has dropped by during the year to share art, food, and conversation.  If you drop by tonight, Third Thursday, I'll be happy to give you a little gift of a Bad Bird reproduction.  You'll see genuine work in progress-- in the ugly duckling stages-- and I have hot cider to ward off the cold. I also just put in a press for painterly monotype  with the help of master printmaker and curator Max DuBois from the South A Street Studios.

In the studio, tonight only,you can see some new in-progress work from 
Four Hands Painting, the collaborative project that Susan Cornelis and I are continuing for its third year.  There's my own new work as well; I like to do a New Years painting, if I can. It seems to metaphorically catch a bit of the year ahead:  for me, travel to Spain, Four Hands Painting project show in September at Sebastopol Center for the Arts,  and Art Trails.  I hope to play a lot with the new press too.

Some SOFA changes:  Gallery 300 welcomes 
Cheryl Itamura and Kathryn Kelsey
to gallery studio spaces. There will be a celebration Jan. 25 1-5 PM, so drop by and see the new look of the studios down the Atlas Coffee alley.  

SOFA Third Thursday "Open Neighborhood" Jan. 16, 5-8 PM  Backstreet Gallery, 461 Sebastopol Ave. Santa Rosa
