Aug 4: Tom Richmond at Schulz Museum

Posted By on Wed, Aug 1, 2012 at 10:45 AM

Big-ass forehead. Squinty eyes all squished together. Mouth gaping like a shark’s, with nearly as many teeth. Caricature is funny because our brains do it already: to recognize thousands of people whose facial features differ only by millimeters, we exaggerate the two or three things that set them apart. Caricaturists like Tom Richmond, Mad magazine illustrator and winner of this year’s Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year, just exaggerates a little more. Richmond gives caricature lessons and speaks about his new instructional book on Saturday, Aug. 4, at the Schulz Museum. 2301 Hardies Lane, Santa Rosa. Class, $35—$40, 10am. Book signing, free, 2pm. 707.579.4452.

June 9-10: Novato Festival of Arts, Wine, and Music at Grant Avenue in Novato

Posted By on Thu, Jun 7, 2012 at 11:42 AM

Novato. Land of abandoned airport hangars and ’80s suburban sprawl . . . or so it would seem. Long inhabited by the Coast Miwok, Novato was settled by whites via Mexican land grant issued in 1839—and soon after, with what this writer considers the most photogenic oak-to-grassland ratio in California on surrounding hillsides, the Novato Festival of Arts, Wine and Music attracted a crowd exactly 116 percent larger than the population of the city. Beer. Wine. Food. Music. You know the drill. Get your summer on with headliners Chuck Prophet, Cold Blood and others on Saturday and Sunday, June 9–10, in downtown Novato. Grant Avenue between Redwood Boulevard and Seventh Street. 10am–7pm. $5. 415.897.1164.

Attend free things! This weekend, the Marin Agriculture Land Trust hosts its 15th annual Landscape Art Show and Sale to benefit its mission of preserving Marin farmland. For two days the show exhibits pieces from 40 artists, most Marin-based, depicting the pastoral Marin countryside. They say the best things in life are free, so you might as well take advantage of it Saturday–Sunday, May 19–20, at the Druids Hall. 4499 Nicasio Valley Road, Nicasio. 2–5pm on Saturday; 10am–4pm on Sunday. Free. 415.663.1158.

March 10: Yasmin Golan at the Schulz Museum

Posted By on Wed, Mar 7, 2012 at 11:59 AM

Can you draw? Animals? Stick figures? I’m not any good at it myself, honestly. Luckily, there’s a Cartoonist—in-Residence program at the Schulz Museum for the artistically challenged to engage with a professional. This weekend, cartoonist Yasmin Golan will be meeting and drawing with the public; one of her larger pieces of work is an illustrated book called My Kitchen, composed of drawings from real-life encounters of the many hard-working people in the food industry. Anyone who’s waited tables certainly knows how Golan’s ink-blotted, faceless characters feel; get out and learn how to turn emotions into illustrations on Saturday, March 10, at the Schulz Museum. 2301 Hardies Lane, Santa Rosa. 1pm. Free. 707.579.4452.
