After moving from Annapolis, CA, to Cloverdale, CA, Jan Krunic began pursuing her artistic talents after taking a drawing class in 2000. She soon discovered her passion for painting with water-based oils on canvas. She mostly paints from her own photographs or other photos that interest her. Her subjects range from landscapes, animals, flowers, plants, and figures, and her frames are custom made by Ted Gross (, using red oak. She stains the frames herself to make them compatible to each painting.

Steve Smith works in slab-built stoneware clay. He likes the spontaneity and mutability of working with clay, and the unique quality and personal signature of hand-built pieces. He has named this particular exhibition "Clay Whimsy." His work is all high-fired, using glazes and oxides.

The Dolphin Gallery is located at 39225 Highway One in downtown Gualala, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call 884-3896 for more information.
