Art of Oak

Art Of Oak

A labor of love, our Art Of Oak program began to take shape in early August when we started reaching out to local businesses with this idea of sponsoring a barrel.

Then we coordinated with the Sebastopol Center for the Arts to help us 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.

From there the completed barrels were sold outright for $500, or they will be auctioned on May 14 at our Ruby Affair.

The sale of the barrels will benefit the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, Children’s Art Programs in Sonoma County.


Thank you to all of the local businesses who jumped in and sponsored a barrel: Click On Sponsor Page For A Complete List

Thank you to those who felt compelled to buy their barrel outright!
