Art By the Sea: November 4 and 5, 2017
The Sonoma Coast is a perfect setting for viewing art and catching a breath of fresh air during the Salmon Creek Art Walk, on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 4 and 5, 2017, in Bodega Bay.
A total of 15 artists’ studios will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stroll through this picturesque seaside village with views of Salmon Creek, a lagoon, and the Pacific Ocean just beyond. Peruse wonderful fine art and craftwork, and talk to the artists about their inspirations and process.
Choose from a wide variety of media, including pottery, stained glass, woodturnings, figurative sculpture, photography, painting, lino-cut prints, jewelry, custom leather, and other wearable art.
For an extra treat, some of the artists will be doing onsite demonstrations of their methods and techniques. Liz Stafford (right), a founding members of the Salmon Creek Art Walk, will demonstrate painting and printing techniques in her studio. Stafford has a deep awareness of the hills, mist, and water, and in her landscapes you see both softness and strength expressed through the use of pastels.
“We are in our 17th year as the premier open studios event on the Sonoma Coast,” said Salmon Creek Art Walk founder and stained glass artist Diana Bundy. New artists are added each year through a juried process, making the Art Walk a worthwhile adventure out to the beautiful Sonoma Coast.
The Details: Saturday, Nov. 4, and Sunday, Nov. 5, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Follow the "Art Walk" signs to Salmon Creek village, one mile north of Bodega Bay on Highway 1, then turn west on Bean Avenue and keep following the signs.
