Grace Hudson Museum 431 S Main Street To kick off the final weekend of our popular “Stitching California” exhibition, the Museum will open a two-week popup show in our public room that revisits the Vagina Quilt Project from 2002. That year, in support of V-Day 2002, the Mendocino Quilt Artist Guild created original art quilts reflecting themes of femininity, sensuality, birth, mothering, and womanhood. The quilts and the efforts of these Ukiah quilters were featured in the 2003 documentary film, “V-Day: Until the Violence Stops,” written by Eve Ensler, the author of the 1996 play, The Vagina Monologues, which became a global phenomenon. (The film will be screened at the Museum on January 12 at 2:00 PM.) “Revisiting the Vagina Quilt Project” is scheduled to run through Friday, January 17. Please note: A few of the artworks in the popup show are anatomically explicit — viewer discretion is advised. (Quilt image is a detail of “A Rose Is A Rose Or Is It?” by Dede Ledford)

Corner Gallery 201 S State St The Corner Gallery will feature the art of Michael Romero. Michaels says: I want someone to see my artwork in their home like feathering a nest.  “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”  Pablo Picasso Our normal lives are spent nine to five working.  Most people do not create.  They get home, watch tv and tie up loose ends before starting the whole mundane process again.  Art frees your mind and helps infiltrate your dreams for all to see and share.  You expose your most special and intimate dreams for all to see.  You open yourself up to criticism and praise, it is both a dangerous rewarding thing.

Additionally the Corner Gallery Hosts: Jon Wolfard, a local woodworker, will be showing some of his new work. Jon works with native hardwoods which he mostly milled from storm downed trees in the Lost Coast area. Although he occasionally uses tropicals, he prefers natives which include Madrone, Tan Oak, Canyon Oak, Chinquapin, Walnut, and others.
