Sneak Peek: The Petaluma River Monster, Opens Friday at Heebe Jeebe!

What a great way to kick off Petaluma’s Butter and Egg Days festivites—an art show that invites people to interpret what the (now)famed river monster looks like. The Petaluma River Monster Project opens 4.22 and it’s just part of the Petaluma River Revival & Art Boat Festival that’s coming in June. Stay tuned.

When Mel and the boys entered their pieces they brought the camera. Here’s a sneak peek of just a clawful of creative monsters from this fantastic show …

Karen and Scott Hess entry offers photographic proof!

My son August must’ve seen the same one as the Hess duo. Only he spotted the monster’s friends, too. (Note the water falling off the monster’s back as it rises out of the water. Details, folks.)

Here’s Melissa’s River Monster. Underwater, riding a unicycle. Because the monster’s crazy, that’s why.

The head turned out especially rad!

Everett‘s monster he titled, “Sucker”.

Petaluma designer and silkscreen extraordinaire Timothy McSweeney.
Did you see wood-screened posters he did for the Firelit Coffee Liqueur launch party?

A lovely entry by the lovely Kathryn St. Clair.

“P. Mudpuppy” by Steve Purcell (of Sam & Max fame).

Jean Howery ‘s homage to Petaluma’s patron cow, Clo of Clover Stornetta.

I could imagine a whole children’s book with this. From Elaine Elwick Barr of Rock n Roll Crafts.

See much, much more awesomeness. COME OUT FRIDAY NIGHT!
