Yesterday, I had the pleasure of Gallery Sitting at the new, Marin Arts Council Gallery and business location on 4th Street in Downtown San Rafael. It is right next to Crepevine, and close to so many great local businesses. Due to this move, they now get many more visitors to the gallery space, and the sales of the latest show have been very good.
The Teamworks exhibit is a 10 year retrospective of the work of Katya McCulloch and Patrick Maloney, who have been working with teenagers in the Juvenille Hall and alternate high schools for at risk teens. This year, four artists were involved as teachers. The results are incredible. This is something you have to see, and it is only up for 5 more days, ending on September 28th. If you'd like to make a purchase to help the Teamworks program, all of the money goes back into the program itself. There are still some wonderful pieces available, and some for as little as $10.- They have a collection of "Clothespin People" that would make adorable puppets for kids playing with a puppet theater. I think my sons would love these.
