2011 Catalog
Meet painters who dabble in oils, pastels and acrylics, potters, print makers, carvers, woodworkers, fiber artists, photographers working in black and white, color and digital, jewelers who enjoy playing with metals, gemstones, glass and vintage materials, and mixed media artists who call the northern California coast home. Be inspired, as they are by the rugged beauty of nature unspoiled.

Each artist offers a unique look at what the creative process means to him or her. Come stay for the weekend, pack a picnic lunch, or visit our local restaurants and wineries while enjoying this delightful experience.
