Four exceptionally talented artists who live and work in Sonoma County will be presented in an exhibition at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art that highlights a few of the talented artists living and working in Sonoma County.
The museum hosts this exhibition in partnership with the Sonoma County Community Foundation. The exhibit opens Saturday, March 15, and runs through Sunday, April 27.
A members’ opening reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. today, Friday, March 14.
The four artists are Stan Abercrombie, Erik Castro, Maura Harrington and Miles Votek. They exhibit exceptional creative excellence and will also be honored with a cash prize, catalogue and exhibition.
There were three jurors for the exhibition, Peter Hassen, an artist who was in “Undiscovered,” an exhibition the museum sponsored in 2012; Pat Lenz, artist and arts advocate who runs Slaughterhouse Space, an alternative arts organization in Healdsburg; and Kate Eilertsen, director and chief curator of the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art. They invited colleagues – curators, artists, gallerists – to recommend artists they thought were extraordinary who had never had a museum exhibition and were not currently represented by a gallery.
