As mentioned, we’ve been wandering around the San Francisco Bay Area seeking new venues, viewing art by local artists, checking out classes, etc.
Vallejo holds an art festival every second Friday year-round along its streets and in local galleries. Of course, everyone is invited to these free events.
Last Friday we started walking Georgia Street, viewing street art, talking with artists, and wandering in and out of galleries. In addition to setting up our own outdoor exhibit on April 7th along with other street artists, we are going to apply for wall space at a specific gallery to begin exhibiting in Vallejo. (Please check back . . . additional detail and examples of art to be shown will be posted here, of course.)
