Schoolhouse by raven Alcott

Art is said to be food for the soul. As with our diversity in gastronomic tastes, we all have a different take as to what constitutes "fine art." For one it is truffles and cream while another will prefer hamburgers and fries. Here in this part of California we have artists working in a wide variety of materials, styles and concepts. If you browse the scene just a bit you will easily find a number of these creative individuals that have found a way to speak to your soul.

A great place to start is at Gualala Arts, but don't miss the private galleries locally, and the Artist's Collective Gallery in Elk. One of the most important events in the Gualala social season is, of course, Art in the Redwoods, usually held in August each year. If you are at all interested in our local artists you should try to attend. Also keep track of when we have our next Studio Discovery Tour. It is an event of increasing importance in our local art world and is usually held Labor Day weekend & the weekend after. (If you are coming to either event - book your lodging early. A lot of folks come up our way to attend these events and beds get scarce.)
