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 …

Sneak Peek: “Secondhand Love” Gives Old Art New Heart, Sat. Feb 13th

Really cool theme for an art show: Buy thrift store art, then make it your own.

Over a dozen artists will be displaying their (upcycled?) creations. Pieces will be available for purchase. But the show’s one night only, so be there early! Details below.

I snuck pics of a couple pieces this afternoon. Gonna be rad.

Melissa Abercrombie’“The Way To A Man’s Heart … “

And a deceptive little piece from Elaine Elwick Barr of Rock n Roll Crafts.

(Hidden in the trunk is a little surprise)

Come on out!

The Jonny Hirschmugl work is further proof of the kick-ass job Drew Washer (of Heebee Jeebee fame) has been doing—giving exposure to young, fresh talent in Petaluma. Keep it up, Drew!
