May 2: Morley paints at the Phoenix Theater

Posted By on Thu, May 1, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Since exploding on the Los Angeles art scene a few years ago with his inspirational street art, Morley has released his first book, If You’re Still Reading This, There’s Still Time. Part artist statement and part bio, the book primarily showcases his murals and posters: block letters spouting encouraging or thought-provoking expressions beside a black-and-white image of the artist himself. Presented by Copperfield’s Books, Morley comes to the Phoenix Theater on May 2 to shares his art and book and put up one of his signs. 201 Washington St., Petaluma. 3pm. Free. 707.762.3565.

June 7: Alexandra Jacopetti Hart exhibit at Occidental Center for the Arts

Posted By on Wed, Jun 5, 2013 at 11:39 AM

Alexandra Jacopetti Hart is credited for the rise of “funk and flash”—not the Sebastopol clothing store, but the art of turning hippie garb into high fashion with her book Native Funk & Flash. Now 73, Hart first learned to sew by taking apart her aunts hand-me-downs to make them fit right; once she realized she didn’t have to stick to the patterns she was taught, there was no turning back. An exhibit of her work, as well as a celebration of the re-release of Native Funk & Flash, takes place Friday, June 7, at the Occidental Center for the Arts. 3850 Doris Murphy Court, Occidental. 6pm. Free. 707.874.9392.
