DEEDS: Art as Action
Thank you everyone for coming to PAC on Labor Day for our postcard writing campaign! The 20 for $20 postcard event with the Petaluma Postcard Pod was a marvelous success. The 3 hour, safely-distanced event saw us selling out of our initial inventory of packaged postcards, stamps and addresses.
We’re restocking our inventory for our next store date on Saturday, September 19th from 10am – 1 pm. We’ll open our doors again for merchandise purchases and viewing of our Hidden Petaluma exhibition, as well as opportunities to shop our Art to Go wall and Boutique. Join us for another fun day of Art as Activism!
For t-shirts, masks and posters on demand, please check out our DEEDS store online at Redbubble!
There is a wonderful article about DEEDS: Art As Action in the Argus-Courier with quotes from the artists and curators.
On Saturday, September 5th, we hosted artists, friends, and members to an opening of our long-awaited Paint Petaluma: Hidden Petaluma co-exhibit with the Petaluma Public Art Committee!
DJVal entertained the (safely-distanced) crowd, while artist Peter Phibbs wowed us with his chainsaw art!
A note about re-opening: we would love to be open for our regular gallery hours, but local public heath guidelines continue to determine what we are able to do. Thus, we are happy to offer pop-up events and openings with additional protocols in the meantime. As soon as we are able to open with regularity, we will happily let you all know!
Brighter Days Youth Art Contest
The Press Democrat wants to engage and uplift students from kindergarten through high school by inviting them to create and share their original artwork. Along with several partnering organizations and supportive local businesses, the PD is launching an art contest for Sonoma County-area children and teens called, “Brighter Days” and will invite local youth to submit images of their paintings, drawings or graphic designs based around this theme.
We at PAC wholeheartedly support the PD in their goal of promoting creativity in children and encourage your young artists to share their vision of Brighter Days!
