The Arts Guild of Sonoma’s November exhibition will feature the work of photographer Rosario Sapienza, as well as new work by guild member artists.
The exhibition runs through Nov. 19 at the AGS gallery on 140 E. Napa St., in Sonoma. The public is invited to the opening reception tonight (Friday), Nov. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Sapienza is an award-winning photographer who exhibits his work throughout Northern California. “My primary focus in photography is the pursuit of ‘fine art’ made with my eye and the camera,” she said. “My subject range is wide as I photograph the beauty that I see regardless of where I see it. The quality that my photographs have in common is that what I saw in that particular moment brought forth some emotion in me – something about that moment appealed to my sense of beauty and interest.”
The Arts Guild of Sonoma, located half a black east of the Plaza, is a contemporary art gallery with changing monthly exhibits showcasing the work of local artists. Opening receptions are held on the first Friday of each month and exhibit pieces in acrylic, encaustic, oil and water color paintings, jewelry, mixed media work, ceramics, metal sculpture and more, including smaller objets d’art, prints and note cards.
The guild was founded to exhibit and advance the creative efforts of local Bay Area artists. Established in 1977, the guild has solidified its status as the oldest, continuously operating artists’ collective in the state of California.
The Arts Guild of Sonoma is free to visit and gallery hours are Wednesday to Monday, 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
