“This community-wide art expo highlights synergy and the potential of community action” said Kala Stein, Director of Arts for the Sonoma Community Center. “This is an authentically inclusive exhibit where all are invited to donate 12” x 12” artwork and in return, through purchases by the public, our programming can continue to thrive.”

The Center will host an opening reception on August 1st from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. and will offer drinks and hors d’oeuvres.  The exhibit will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:00am – 4:00pm August through September with all of the art available for $40 each.  Since art will be rotating with each purchase, the gallery will continue to renew itself.  The exhibit will conclude with a closing celebration on September 27th from 5:30 – 7:30pm with potentially a completely different exhibit of 12″ x 12″ art!

Sonoma Community Center’s Gallery 212 serves as our Art Gallery, supporting creative exploration in fine art, fiber art, ceramics, theater, movement, music, and sustainable living with rotating art exhibits that highlight the community-based interests of Sonoma Valley.  Located on our second floor, the historic room lends itself as a beautiful, spacious, light filled exhibition and event space.  You never know what to expect in Gallery 212!

Gallery Exhibits are free and open to the public.  Gallery hours and availability are subject to change.  Please call ahead to confirm gallery times, 707-938-4626 x1.  When art is for sale, a percentage of sales benefit the Sonoma Community Center.
