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!

Stag n Houndstooth Shirt at Rock N Roll Crafts

A last-minute gift that’s handmade, local, and freakin’ fresh? It’s a holiday miracle!

These rockin’ shirts are hand stenciled by the stylish hands of Elaine Elwick BarrRock n Roll Crafts. She’s the one and only artist licensed to use Stencil 1 designs from Ed Roth (no, not that one). But like Big Daddy, she’s good with the customs. So when you see a design you like, she’ll spray it up in practically any colors you can think of. On any color shirt (well, that American Apparel can think of).
