Upstairs Art Gallery is celebrating 21 years in business -June 2018. This major milestone bestows upon the gallery the honor of being the longest running art gallery in Healdsburg history, a town that is currently the vibrant home to over 20 art galleries. This small gallery was also ahead of its time in 1997, as was the first artist-owned gallery to open in Sonoma County, a business model that has since been followed successfully by many more!
June is the time to show off Sonoma County's bounty of crops, backyard gardens and agricultural heritage. "Abundance" is the theme that is featured in the gallery front window. Art works by Carolyn Wilson, Lenona Winter, Cynthia Jackson-Hein, Willow Laland, Dan Scannell , Ron Sumner and Jill Keller Peters showcase the varied farmland offerings that are rooted in Sonoma County.
Upstairs there will be a historical showcase of artwork by many alumni artists who have been part of the gallery's 21 year past, alongside the work of the 16 current artist partners.
