The Arts Guild of Sonoma continues its 40th year anniversary celebration as a nonprofit artists’ cooperative in the heart of Sonoma wine country. The Guild is hosting a reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 2.
As part of the festivities, the Guild launched its first National Juried Competition. The jurors were Donna Seager and Suzanne Gray of Seager Gray Gallery. The Guild received responses from across the country, with a total of 370 pieces submitted for consideration.
The competition was open to all artists over 18 years of age nationally in the mediums of sculpture, printing, painting, photography, ceramics, assemblage, collage, mixed media, fiber art and book art. All work needed to be original – no reproductions.
“All the art submitted is wonderful, and the jurors were challenged to settle on their top choices,” said Jackie Lee of the Guild.
