"From the Fire" is a multi-media exhibit, the focus of which is the 2017 fires that devastated Sonoma County. It is really worth seeing as it depicts creativity and compassion borne out of destruction and devastation. Tip: Admission is free if for NARM members.

The artist who made everything out of ceramic is a genius. Pencils looked pencils, shoes looked like shoes and so on and on

Small but eclectic art museum very near the downtown mall. I saw two unusual exhibits at my last visit in Sept. One was a private collection of photographs of female nudes, and the other featured furniture and fine art made of exotic woods. A pleasure.

We go to the museum fairly regularly and are considering becoming members. It's a small museum, but they change out the exhibits frequently enough to make it worth it to go a few times a year.
