New exhibit at Art Escape Sonoma

"Untitled," Jill Sabel Valavanis, free motion machine embroidery on cotton.

"It’s About Time," a two-person exhibition of new work by Jill Sabel Valavanis and Jim Valavanis opens at Art Escape on Saturday, Nov. 11, with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m.. Art Escape is located at 17474 Highway 12 in Boyes Hot Springs.

Jill and Jim, a married couple who live in El Verano, challenged each other to create a series of artworks, each using a technique they wanted to explore. Jill chose free motion embroidery using a sewing machine and Jim chose to stencil using spray paint. The resulting works are abstract, inviting the viewer to imagine what each piece might illustrate.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. or by appointment.

"It’s About Time" will be on view from Nov. 11 through Dec. 17.
