'Laughing Matters' Exhibit
August 18 - September 24, 2017
The Wine Country Arts Council presents ‘Laughing Matters’ featuring art that makes us smile, chuckle, or burst into laughter. Artist submittals for this show include visual and literary artworks consisting of paintings, illustrations, sculptures, fiberartworks, poetry, short stories, original comics and more. All works are by Sonoma County artists. The ‘Laughing Matters’ exhibition coincides with You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
The Studio Gallery is a result of a partnership between the 6th Street Playhouse and the Wine Country Arts Council. The Council presents a new exhibition of art in the newly created Studio Gallery at the 6th Street Playhouse in Railroad Square, Santa Rosa.
During the run of Studio Shows, curated exhibits related to the themes of the productions will be open to the public prior to and during run dates.
The art on display is for sale. Directions for expressing an interest in purchasing a work of art are posted by the drop boxes in the gallery. Anyone wishing to make a purchase of a work of art must fill out one of the offer to purchase forms.
About the Wine Country Arts Council
The Wine Country Arts Council is a nonprofit organization that strives to foster cultural enrichment and promote the arts in the local community. Originally based in Windsor, California, the Council is now open to all artists in Sonoma County and the surrounding communities.The organization, formed in the late 1990s, began as a social group for artists and grew into a membership based organization with a gallery in Windsor. With the closure of the Windsor Gallery, the council expanded its boundaries to include the greater art community. The Wine Country Arts Council is proud to form a partnership with the 6th Street Playhouse to promote and showcase art in the “Studio Gallery” at the 6th Street Playhouse in Santa Rosa. The gallery offers a variety of shows, mostly juried, open to all mediums: oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, photography, sculpture, installation, mixed and multimedia. Our current board members: Pascal Jean Druzgala, President & Webmaster; Catherine Daley, Art Council Adviser; Vicki Stockette, Secretary Treasurer; and Brent Gudzus, Social Media & Press. Carole Rae Watanabe and Nancy Gray as Board Advisers & Art Coordinators.
