The Sonoma Valley Museum of Art is proud to present a second season of public art in Sonoma Plaza this summer. Natural Affinity: California Women Sculptors in the Landscape opens June 8 and runs through October 21. Artworks included are by Gwynn Murrill, Lisa Reinertson, and Alison Saar. Each of these women sculptors plays an important role in evolving the canon of California art and in the art of sculpture. Their artwork features a shared concern for the natural world as well as human-animal interests concerning friendship, love, and the parent-child bond.
There will be opening remarks by representatives from the Museum, City of Sonoma, and the artists on June 8, 2018 from 5:30-6:30pm in Sonoma Plaza and a public reception on the Plaza from 6:30-8pm where guests are encouraged to bring-your-own picnic. The installation is supported by the City of Sonoma, Dana Simpson-Stokes and Ken Stokes, Steel Cherry, E.K. Excavating, and Landers Curry.
Tours exploring the exhibition will be offered on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings at 11:45am. Visitors can meet the guides at the SVMA museum front doors and walk over to the square. Admission is free and donations are always welcome.
