Café Frida Gallery, the popular Sofa Arts District café and hangout next to Juilliard Park, is beginning the New Year with a group exhibit of some of Sonoma County’s favorite artists in their gallery space. Since it opened at the beginning of 2020, the café has been featuring local artists in the gallery of the café, which is considered a retail space so even if no food is served inside or outside in their patio, the gallery is open with up to 25% occupancy at a time.
Artworks by artists Alejandro Salazar, Brooks Anderson, Bill Wheeler, Kate Black, Mary Vaughan, Tony Speirs, Sherrie Lovler, Joel Bennett, and Tashi will be featured. The show is meant as a preview of solo or two-person exhibits later in the year. Gallery Director Mario Uribe is dedicated to continue offering art exhibits at the Café Gallery, especially in light of the Covid19 restrictions, which demand more culturally uplifting experiences for us.
Currently the café portion is open only for take out orders and outdoor dining on our patio. Meanwhile, the gallery will be open for viewing during our regular business hours: Wednesday through Sunday from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
(A reception for the artists is not possible right now because of the Covid19 situation but you are welcome to come in and look at the art anytime during our open hours.)
Sunday from 12pm-2pm,
