You may meet many of the featured artists who love to discuss their work and the history of Patrick Ranch Museum. More than 25 individuals are participating in this event. Most of all you will are invited to view and purchase their paintings, photography, pottery, sculptures, fabric art, jewelry, blown glass, metal art and more. As a fund raiser for Patrick Ranch Museum the artists donate a percentage of all sales.
You will enjoy fabulous paintings by Carol Preble Miles, Sally Dimas, Amber Palmer and paintings and photographs by the other talented artists participating in Patrick Ranch Museum's Plein Air Program. Back by popular demand are Bernie Vigallon with his pay it forward bird houses (all profits from sales are donated to a non-traditional scholarship fund for at risk teenagers). He still has a few birdhouses made from recycled materials from the Patrick Ranch Museum's Glenwood House renovation; they seem to "fly" out the door. Chris Cantello's amazing and beautiful pottery, Dave Dragoman's unusual turned wood art, and Mike Shaw's blown glass are all executed with wonderful craftsmanship. New designs in jewelry by Patti Lun and Merlyn Newlin will dazzle you. The whimsically, creative, rusty medal sculptures by Doug Rathbun will spark your imagination, along with Doug Lun's horse shoe wine racks and home decor. With the winter season upon us, Judy Johnson and Sandy Fischer’s fabric art will be sure to keep you in style and beautiful fashion, not to mention warm and cozy.
Our new, featured artists this year are; oil and watercolor painter Joan Smith, ceramic artist Sara Gordon, garden art sculptures by Raffi Segal and Dan Driscoll, hand woven Native American baskets by Alberto Arvoy and the "Shutterbug" photography Club.
