When you visit a new town, what is the best way to get to know that new town and community? We think the best way to get to know a community is through the food and the art.
So we want to celebrate the Artists and Farmers who make our community unique by sharing their faces and stories. I am working on this project with a very talented team of people, including Beau Bouverat who made this film:
ARTISTS & FARMERS: *the SHEPHERD & the DOLLMAKER…,
We are just now getting started with the documentation of Sonoma County, and we still have a long way to go to tell the story of this one county. But we want to share what we have so far with other people who are interested in celebrating community through our Artists and Farmers.
So we are throwing a free Artists & Farmers event at Cornerstone Gardens on October 3rd from 11-4 pm. There will be:
Live music by Arann Harris and the Farm Band, The Easy Leaves and David Luning.
Food to taste and buy from some of our local farmers.
Art demonstrations, as well as finished art pieces to admire, made by some of our local artists.
A photo booth for you to take your own artist and farmer portraits.
And some of the portraits that we have taken so far will be on display.
So if you like food and art. Or if you grow food or make art… then please come and celebrate with us on October 3rd.
If you are an artist or farmer in Sonoma County and you would like to be a part of this project then please leave a comment or send me an email.
