A trip up the coast

Two of my pieces at the Claudia Chapline Gallery in Stinson Beach. Claudia will be closing her gallery before the end of the year, in part because of the economy, but mostly because she wants to have time for her own art.

Above, two shots of Monty Monty's speampunkish balloon in The Quicksilver Mine Co. Gallery in Forestville, where I also have work. They seem to be plugging along. You can see more of his work on his website.
Here is A Noah's Ark in Sebastapol, the work of Patrick Amiot. Many of his neighbors, as well as numerous local businesses, have his yard art displayed, there are more photos here  (his web site is down, unfortunately).

A trip I wouldn´t have minded making myself... I especially like your ball, + it corresponds so well with the wrestling (?)figures...

I love the mosaic cat. What a shame the gallery is closing. It looks like there are some wonderful pieces in there.

I checked out the link to Amiot's work -- which is described as "urban folk art." Everything you highlight here is fun/whimsical/colorful in the best way.

I love your cat! I'm sure he'd purr each time he got a good polish!

Eva said...

Amazing things! And they make me smile. Your cat is a night creature with a harmless mimikry, but weird inside!
