Come join us for food, music, fun, and more, as we celebrate the openings of our next two exhibitions: 20 Sonoma Collectors: Celebrating SVMA's 20th Year and From Fire, Love Rises: Stories Shared from the Artist Community


20 Sonoma Collectors: Celebrating SVMA's 20th Year:
Each art collection, like each picture, tells a story. 20 Sonoma Collectors brings the story of 20 art enthusiasts and their collections to SVMA. The exhibition provides a unique opportunity to view contemporary art from important Sonoma collections, including works by Squeak Carnwath, Shepard Fairey, Roy De Forest, Tom Friedman, Jacob Hashimoto, David Hockney, Robert Mapplethorpe, Claes Oldenburg, Kiki Smith, and Andy Warhol, among others.
From Fire, Love Rises: Stories Shared from the Artist Community:
From Fire, Love Rises commemorates artists who were impacted by the October 2017 fires in Sonoma and Napa Counties. Many artists in these regions have relied on their artistic practice to recover from their losses and help restore the community around them. The exhibition features artists and writers who work in bronze, photography, ceramics, printmaking, new media, poetry, and prose to express their countless stories of loss, gratitude, and resiliency that have emerged in the year since the fires. Participating artists and writers include: John Arntz, Lori Barron, Erick Benitez, Mima Cataldo, Arisbet Camacho, Ed Coletti, Sam Coturri, Alan Crisp, Ethan Davis, Camille Dungy, Iris Jamahl Dunkle, Erick Dunn, Brian Fies, Carole Flaherty, Jackie Huss Hallerberg, Peter Hassen, Katherine Hastings, Brenda Hillman, Kylie Hopp, Maya Khosla, Maurine Killough, Laura Kimpton, Ada Limón, Fran Braga Meininger, Gwynn O'Gara, Norma I. Quintana, Gregory Roberts, Mary Lee Rybar, Kala Stein, Bryan Tedrick, Bob Van Breda, Adam Wiedmann, Valerie Woods, and Breyanna Wright.
