June 6: Jeremy Novy Art Reception at Epicurean Connection

Posted By on Wed, Jun 4, 2014 at 9:20 AM

If you’ve ever wandered the streets of San Francisco and seen those brightly colored koi fish stenciled on sidewalks and abandoned buildings, you can thank celebrated street artist Jeremy Novy. The leading voice in the city’s queer street-art movement is also known for his series of stenciled drag-queen portraits, pop-culture-inspired pieces that explode with color and attitude. Pride Month brings Novy’s work to Sonoma, opening this week and benefiting the Russian River Sisters’ Grant Fund. A Collection of Drag Queens and Koi Stencils by Jeremy Novy exhibits through June, with an opening reception Friday, June 6, at the Epicurean Connection, 122 West Napa St., Sonoma. 6pm. 707.935.7960.

Jan. 17: 'Thinking Outside the Bottle' at the Napa Valley Museum

Posted By on Wed, Jan 15, 2014 at 3:32 PM

Winery owners come from all areas of the world—both geographically and anthropologically. We’ve got retired dentists, Wall Street bankers, practicing lawyers, Oscar-winning filmmakers and at least 10 artists. At least that’s what the Napa Valley Museum is telling us with its new exhibit, ‘Thinking Outside the Bottle.’ Shining a light on winemakers, viticulturalists and winery owners who refuse to relegate themselves to one art form, the show includes painters, ceramicists and sculptors from Charter Oak, Mendelson, Zacherle and others. Both Margrit Mondavi and Eleanor Coppola are included in the show, too, which opens with a reception on Friday, Jan. 17, at the Napa Valley Museum. 55 Presidents Circle, Yountville. 5:30—7pm. $5. 707.944.0500.

September 4-6: Sausalito Art Festival at Marinship Park

Posted By on Wed, Sep 1, 2010 at 11:23 AM

The annual Sausalito Art Festival always reliably promises plenty of quality art, great food and fine outdoor seaside mingling, but it’s this year’s music lineup that’s worth a double-take. Three of the great retro decades are covered, as Saturday’s performers form a veritable ’80s invasion with the Bangles, the Fixx and Modern English; Sunday it’s the ’70s with Pablo Cruise, the Tubes and Dave Mason; and Monday digs back into the ’60s with Sons of Champlin, Jefferson Starship and the great Mavis Staples. (The ’90s stage with Mother Love Bone, Dishwalla and Gin Blossoms may have to wait a few years.) With local acts on the side stage and hundreds of artist booths along Richardson Bay, it’s an event everyone should attend at least once. Grab an ice cream cone and pick your decade on Saturday–Monday, Sept. 4–6, at Marinship Park. Marinship Way, Sausalito. 10am–6pm. $5–$20. 415.331.3757.
