IMG_0394As we closed our doors at P&G Art for the last time, we were pulled both backward and forward in time, flooded with memories but also thrilled by the unknown path ahead! You,the people we’ve come to know during our 25 years in Sebastopol, have been more than generous to us — bestowing your friendship and support, sharing your laughter and wisdom, and giving us a real sense of community and belonging.  We dearly hope to see you all when we’re out and about.

And speaking of being out and about, November 21st and 22nd, 10am-5pm, meet the artists and join in the fun at the 11th Annual JOY ART WALK & HOLIDAY SALE! Treat yourself to a getaway in the lush quiet of  the redwoods, one of our very own natural wonders, and discover a treasure-trove of handcrafted local arts and gifts, yummy eats and treats, raffles and giveaways.  And for the kids, free face painting!

All this will transpire in two magical settings–Joy Road Barn (a historical horse barn JoyRoadBarnaglow with fairy lights) as well as the picturesque Schoolhouse Gallery nearby…

A view of a few of the new pillows, whose names are: The P & G PillowsEmperor’s Elbow Pillow, The Buddha’s Beach Ball Pillow, and The Good Fortune Firecracker Pillow…

Ken Whitbeck cardsRecently, our friend Ken Whitbeck, whose photographic images evoke an intimate connection to the natural world, has graciously let us use these images for our cards and notecards…We have packaged his Red Tulips, Laughing Buddha, and Happy Cat in sets of five for a sweet and useful gift. They are printed on translucent marbled paper and mounted on luxurious Fabriano cards.

P&G Art, SebastopolThis year, on a high and dusty shelf in Peter’s studio, we found 100 original, 2″x 2″ hand-carved terracotta tiles…They are tiny depictions of wildly varied subjects–from an erupting volcano to a piece of pie, from a birdie on a branch to a lightbulb. This rediscovered collection is a time-traveling messenger from Peter circa mid-1980s…

Rebecca Love has wrought clay candleholders and dishes into wonderful leaf and branch IMG_0352forms…They complement the handmade beeswax tapers, lotuses, acorns, pine cones and roses from Jan at Bee Happy…

Earrings by Lacy MadrigalLacy Madrigal has a magpie-eye for the shiny bead and the glint of metal. Her style is quirky and graceful, combining elements of vintage jewelry, art nouveau, and steampunk as shown in these earrings…

And, speaking of jewelry, Theresa’s beautifully made lockets with Lockets by Theresa Joycerenderings of her paintings on metal are a treasure: must see and touch to appreciate!

As always, we thank you for your support all these years. A special thank you to Ken Whitbeck for his time and photography. And a big thank you to Vincenzo Tocci for his photograph of Maggie and the Earring.

We look forward to celebrating with everyone December 6th and 7th!   Gerrie & Peter
