glass art by Stacey Alysa DennickHere’s my revised glass art lover’s recommended itinerary for 2015 Art at the Source open studios.  This one is all glass – fused, blown, painted, and cast, with an emphasis on variety. Studios are open, free to the public, from 10am-5PM, June 6 & 7, and again on June 13 & 14, 2015.  All the studios are numbered, and everyone has big yellow signs pointing to their place, so they aren’t difficult to find. Download a map here.

Start your tour at Studio # 72, 4815 Thomas Rd., Sebastopol, CA 95472, just off Green Valley Road, where Branka Harris will exhibit her unique fused glass painted nudes.

Next, go back to Green Valley Road but turn west.  Turn left onto scenic Harrison Grade, make a right on Morelli, and a left onto Heather Lane to studio to the Dennicks #98, 4200 Heather Lane.Leland and Stacey Dennick glass art

My husband Leland Dennick  and I have fused glass, cast glass, painted glass, raked glass, glass with inclusions, glass jewelry, and more. We’ll have demos each day at
1PM – fusing techniques including cutting, raking and gold leaf inclusions, cold working techniques including cutting, carving and polishing.

Melissa McCann‘s studio, # 796,  is just a mile away. Take Morelli to Occidental Camp Meeker Road to 4065 Acreage Lane.  It seems like it’s in Occidental, but use Sebastopol, 95472 for GPS.

Go another mile to downtown Occidental, where  Laurence, # 94, shows glass art in her shop at 74 Main St. Occidental, CA 95465.

Return to Sebastopol, just outside Graton, for Susanna Kaplan, #70, 8899 Green Valley Rd. Sebastopol, CA 95472.  Check out Brian and Nancy Roberts, #61, and Valerie Adams at studio # 73, 6975 Hutchins Ave. Sebastopol, CA 95472.

At the south end of town and a bit into the countryside, don’t miss studio #34, Salatino – Gandolfo Glass, 2820 Bloomfield Rd. Sebastopol, CA 95472, for handblown, diamond wheel cut glass.

Hungry?  Mediterranean cuisine rocks the East/West Cafe in Sebastopol.  Or try the lamb saag at the Himalayan Tandoori & Curry House.  Want a beer?  Check out the Hopmonk Tavern.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a fantastic treasure hunt!
