The holiday season kicks off with the 8th Annual Joy Art Walk– a fun show right in my ‘hood featuring 10 local artists, foodie delights, free face painting and surprise guests at two adjacent locations – the Enchanted Barn fair & the Red Schoolhouse gallery. 2502 and 2400 Joy Road, Occidental, 95465. November 17 & 18 from 11AM to 5PM.
I’ll be showing fused glass art, home decor, jewelry, ornaments, dishes and gemstone jewelry at the Red Schoolhouse gallery, 2400 Joy Road, Occidental 95465. We’ll have watercolor paintings, handmade calendars and cards by Susan St.Thomas; terrariums, garden art & vintage cake stands by Theresa Joyce; marble sculpture by Aaron Poovey. Find ceramic art by Rebecca Love and Nancy Morgan. Serving ware for your holiday table by Shelley Macdonald. Walking sticks too. Kelp baskets, forest animal ornaments and other whimsy by Linda Sauter & Maralee Wisewomyn. Rustic reclaimed furniture, home and garden pieces by Joe & Fiona Mercieca.

Taste the Dark Side – sample and purchase Sonoma Chocolatier’s divine chocolates. Free face painting by Cindy Conway. Check out her children’s books & CDs. Cheese tasting by Andre Artisan Cheese. Walk the stone labyrinth at the Red Schoolhouse. More surprises to come! Fabulous variety with a wide range of very fair prices in an art gallery and fun fair atmosphere. Forget the malls, get a jump on your holiday shopping the weekend before Thanksgiving. Many of the artists will donate 10% of sales on selected items to Forgotten Felines.
