Thanks so much for mentioning and linking to our gallery, Debbie! We hope you can visit some day - it would be wonderful to meet you.

Hi, I live in beautiful Sonoma County in northern California. We are hugely fortunate to have an abundance of severl incredibly amazing and wonderfully creative artists and art lovers here. Along with this, we have many amazing galleries and other venues to view art.

There are many, many terrific galleries in this area that I wish I could tell you about, but I will limit this to only two of my favorites:

First, Quicksilver Art Gallery in Forestivlle,CA Quicksiver is a beautifully lit gallery that provides a friendly venue with knowledgable and professional staff. They host rotating art exhibitions, gallery talks, literary and musical events, receptions, and tons more. Love it!http://www.quicksilvermineco.com/

The second most favorite art gallery is Art To Ashes in Graton, CA This place is unbeliveable! It is a unique "international" arts gallery that is a leader in the emerging funerary art genre for original, thoughtfully conceived and superbly crafted funerary urns and vessels for people and our beloved animals. I am not kidding, this place is terrific. http://www.funeria.com/

Please take a look at their websites. I am sure you will be impressed.

Being one of the Flying Pig locals and artists that hangs out there, I can confidently say that you wouldn't regret spending some time there. Fair warning-one visit is never enough:)

Thanks for the kudos for FUNERIA's Art Honors Life gallery, Rebeca, and what a wonderful site to be posted on! I'm also proud to be in any list that includes Quicksilver Mine Company. I agree on all points.

I'll also add that a good reference for gallery hopping between treks to the coast, wineries, bike and hiking trails is the very handy map produced by the Sonoma County Gallery Group: http://www.scgg.org/

But there's more! 2010 is FUNERIA's 5th biennial international year of organizing ASHES TO ART®. This is the show, juried by distinguished arts professionals, that launched FUNERIA in 2001, has earned international acclaim, and is a one-of-a-kind contemporary funerary art exhibition that consistently redefines the typically dreary, functional cremation urn.

Readers of this post who are working in sculpture and 3D forms and are interested in creating uniquely beautiful and original urns, vessels and personal memorial art objects are encouraged to check out our Prospectus when it posts to our website in April.

Whatever your other interests, thanks to all for building art networks and communities.

Susan, can't wait to come sit with a cup of something and visit...hope it will be one day soon.

Rebeca, thank you so much for sharing with our readers these wonderful links.

Maureen, so glad you stopped by and shared even more about FUNERIA.

Sue, you know you will have company when I come that way. Thanks for sharing more about The Flying Pig with our readers.
