Art of Oak - A labor of love, began to take shape in early August when we started reaching out to local businesses with the idea of sponsoring a barrel.
Then we coordinated with the Sebastopol Center for the Arts to help find interested artists, it has been quite a journey.
We wanted to take 40 used wine barrels and have local artists turn them into works of art – either painted, sculpted or turned into furniture. Each barrel is sponsored by a business, which is proudly acknowledged on a plaque on the barrel listing their name along with the artist.
Several of the completed barrels were sold outright by the sponsors, others will be auctioned on May 14 at our Ruby Affair.
The sale of the barrels will benefit the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, Art THROUGH Education Programs in Sonoma County.
