Salmon Creek Art Walk Open Studios November 5 and 6
Visiting the Sonoma Coast is always an awe inspiring experience; catch a fresh sea breeze, a view of surfers bobbing on rolling waves, maybe a string of low-flying pelicans, or even a beached fishing boat. All this, and more, makes a perfect setting for visiting artist’s studios during the Salmon Creek Art Walk in Bodega Bay.
Stroll through the picturesque seaside village with views of Salmon Creek, the lagoon, and the beach and sea just beyond. During the weekend of Saturday, November 5 and Sunday, November 6, eighteen artists welcome you into their studios. Peruse wonderful fine art and craftwork and talk to the artists about their inspirations and process. There is a wide variety of media to choose from, including pottery, stained glass, woodturnings, figurative sculpture, photography, painting, lino-cut prints, jewelry, custom leather, and other wearable art.
For an extra delight some of the artists will be doing onsite demonstrations of their methods and techniques. Lillian Lehman, who is a long-time ArtWalk participant, will be demonstrating her process of figurative clay sculptures. Lillian says, “My art is about stories and an attempt to translate them into something three dimensional. I start from an emotion, a piece of music, a poem, a found object, and I try to give them life and form in clay.”
Salmon Creek Art Walk founder and stained glass artist, Diana Bundy, stated that “we are in our 16th year as the premier open studios event on the Sonoma Coast,” and that through a juried process new artists are added each year making it a worthwhile adventure out to the beautiful Sonoma Coast.
Saturday, November 5, and Sunday, November 6, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. To find the studios follow the orange "ArtWalk" 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.
