Art Trails — A Local Adventure
Heading out on Sonoma County Art Trails is a great way to soak up the beauty of Sonoma County Wine Country. Sponsored by the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, Art Trails takes you into the studios of local artists for a “private” viewing of their work. Painting, ceramics, jewelry, mosaic, art glass, fiber arts — you will find art of every discipline.
It’s fascinating to chat with the different artists, who are always happy to answer your questions and explain their technique. Being in the midst of art in the making may inspire and enliven your own creativity, and it certainly promises to be a fun adventure.
There are pockets of studios in Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Petaluma and beyond. Pick up the 2016 Guide and plan a day around a visit to four or five studios. Take the back roads, enjoy the fall colors and fresh air. Maybe pack a basket and picnic at a nearby winery or check out a local restaurant for lunch. Art Trails Open Studios allows you to explore the local landscape in an unhurried, easygoing way.
