Building Community Through Art


PAC is dedicated to building our community’s creative capacity by making art an increasingly vital and meaningful part of our public life.

In order to achieve this vision we will:

    • Strive to present innovative, inspiring and meaningful art exhibitions
    • Maintain a sustainable, accessible and inclusive space for community gatherings and for diverse artistic expressions and experiences
    • Enrich Petaluma both culturally and economically
    • Provide artistic and educational opportunities for learners of all ages
    • Foster creativity by embracing new audiences and new ways of seeing the world


The Petaluma Arts Council began in June 1998, as a grassroots effort to acknowledge and celebrate local artists and their contributions and to involve the whole community in appreciation, involvement and recognition of art as an enriching component of our daily lives.

Ten years later—in September 2008—with the support of the City of Petaluma and a particularly generous donor, the Petaluma Arts Council opened the Arts Center, a 4,500 square foot facility located in the historic Railroad Depot Freight Building, next door to the Petaluma Visitors Center.


We are located in the historic train depot on Lakeville between East D and East Washington Streets, adjacent to the Downtown Petaluma SMART train. Entrance to our parking lot is from East Washington across from CVS.

A Basic Game Plan for Your Artist Career
Presented by Stephen C. Wagner
professional artist, gallerist, & educator

Learn about creating a cohesive body of work, titling your work, creating a pricing structure, framing, managing your inventory, documenting your artwork, designing your website, creating marketing materials, building your exhibit history, and approaching art galleries.

Stephen C. Wagner has been a guest speaker and has taught workshops and classes for art organizations and colleges throughout California. Through his guest speaking on professional development for artists, Stephen encourages other artists to commit to their artwork and take the steps necessary to become more successful.  His lectures offer artists insight to jump-start their artist career, with emphasis on how to obtain clear focus on their intention for their artwork, create a strategic plan for their artist career, create an impressive artist portfolio website, and master the business of art.  

Stephen is the managing partner at Arc Gallery in San Francisco. Arc features a 1,000 square foot art gallery, two smaller galleries and an art education center.  In addition, he was the Program Development Coordinator for the San Diego Art Institute, has been a consultant for the San Diego Children's Museum, and was on the Board of Directors for Arteach in Palm Desert. To train teachers to incorporate art into their everyday curriculum, Stephen taught Aesthetic Education classes through the University of San Diego Division of Continuing Education.
