ART EXHIBIT INFORMATION
We are inviting paintings, basketry, photography, beadwork, jewelry and more,
created by indigenous California artists for a group exhibit.
The first floor glass cases can display various sized baskets, cradles, jewelry, glass, small and sculpture pieces and are kept locked at all times. Limited in space, we hope to feature the work of 10-12 basket weavers, each with 1-2 pieces. The top shelves are tall and can be used to display cradles and medium sized baskets, etc. The bottom shelves are reserved for smaller pieces such as glass-art, small baskets, jewelry and beadwork.
The second-floor gallery space will beautifully display 10-12, 2-D artists, depending on the size and number
of pieces submitted. There are high ceilings with a vertical wire-hanging system.
All 2-D art must be wired on the back and ready to hang.
Artists need to provide labels for each piece of art. A common size is approximately 2”x 3”,
or the size of a typical business card. Printed or neatly hand-written labels are both acceptable.
Each label should include your name, contact information, title (optional), description, and purchase price.
If you do not wish to sell your piece, just write NFS (not for sale).

EXHIBITING ARTISTS WISHING TO CREATE THEIR OWN RECEPTION
ONSITE SPACE IS AVAILABLE THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 5 PM - 7 PM
The City of Santa Rosa does not provide a reception.
The status of the pandemic will determine the requirements for hosting a small group event.
Many artists find this to be a fun way to sell more work not seen in the exhibit.
Tables and chairs are provided by the senior center.
Participants would bring snacks and beverages to share.
The Pomo Project would contribute water, cups, plates,
utensils & napkins. Cleanup would also be a group effort.
The decision to hold a reception will be finalized closer to the event,
and we would need a commitment in advance from those who wish to participate.
The City of Santa Rosa and the Pomo Project will provide avenues for community awareness,
and we hope each of you will notify family, friends, and colleagues of this wonderful event.
The Pomo Project hopes to continue to bring Native artists to the
forefront and showcase their talents.
Every time we’re able to create an event in the community, it’s another opportunity
for education and inspiration for everyone! We look forward to another
ground-breaking show for Pomo Honoring Month!
POMO PROJECT STAFF WILL HANDLE
