NAOMI MURAKAMI: THINK LOUD

November 4 - December 17, 2014

Reception: Friday, November 7, 5-7pm

Multimedia artist Naomi Murakami considers everything she does to be art, but paintings are one of her favorite ways to enter her inner utopian world. Everyday incidents influence her art, as they do her dreams. She lets her surroundings and materials influence her decisions. Most often, what might be considered the smallest things (marks, scratches, a smudge, a drip, a shadow, a doodle, an intuition about an unknown, or even distractions) lead her into her world. -- These are the ways she enters her work, and then she constructs her "Pseudo-Realist" world.

JAMES CURTIS: "IN APPRECIATION OF LUTHER BURBANK" THE NINTH STREET MURAL SKETCH, 1979 

December 20, 2014 - February 26, 2015

Reception: Friday, February 13, 5-7pm

This exhibition showcases the final sketch for the mural "In Appreciation of Luther Burbank", that was under the 9th Street overpass for nearly 30 years. Having recently returned from display in Nebraska, this work is returning home to Sonoma County to be displayed for the first time in over two decades. Referencing Luther Burbank’s botanical innovations, and our own Sonoma landscape, this mural captures a special moment in our history while it serves as a living document of a mural that was once an integral part of the Santa Rosa landscape.
