BRIAN HOWLETT: GLEAN & GROW
Artist Reception: July 31, 5-7pm
There is a joy, a sense of gratitude and satisfaction when you grow and raise your own food. It’s that joy which I express in this current watercolor series, Glean & Grow. Each painting is a “portrait” of the fruits and vegetables I have gleaned from neighbors or that I have grown in our little backyard neighborhood garden in downtown Santa Rosa. My hope is that you enjoy my family of portraits as much as I’ve enjoyed painting them.

Sonoma County Museum

Sonoma County Museum

Sonoma County Mid-Century Bohemians and Mavericks
Thursday, July 23, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
History Museum of Sonoma County
425 Seventh Street, Santa Rosa
Members: $10
Non Members: $15

Listen in on a lively discussion between Les Adler, Renata Breth, Janet Gracyk and Jonah Raskin as they talk about Sonoma County’s beloved artists, writers, scholars and photographers, like Hansel Mieth and Otto Hagel, Marguerite Wildenhain, Harry Dixon, and Hassel Smith, and the context of their times. Lured by Jack London’s writings and the wish for a simple lifestyle, many were transplants from other countries and large cities. Drawn together by common interests, these mavericks created a thriving creative community in Sonoma County in the mid-century decades during a time period when anti-Communist feeling pervaded most of the country.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at museumsc.org under events

Thursday – July 16th, 6pm – Tour of the Historic West End Neighborhood

Join the Historical Society of Santa Rosa for a tour by Allen Thomas of the West End neighborhood. We will take a leisurely walk through this historic Italian neighborhood and learn about many of the homes and stories of their original owners. The West End District is Santa Rosa’s only historic ethnic neighborhood. The first large Italian immigration occurred around 1885. The City’s 1892 block book shows about half Italian names in the district and by the 1920s documents show the proportion closer to 90%. It was also the home to several long-standing Italian businesses- Lena’s Restaurant and nightclub, Michele’s Restaurant and Franco American Bakery.

Tour starts at the DeTurk Round Barn located at 819 Donahue Street. There is no cost. Sign up at the event or pre-register with Staci Pastis at (707) 332-1347 or StaciPastis@aol.com.

Scary 4th

Tips for a Safer, More Humane 4th of July for Your Pets:

  • Be sure your pet has it’s collar on, it’s micro-chip information is up-to-date, and that you have a current photo on hand.
  • If your pets are especially nervous about fireworks, consult your family veterinarian about whether to give them anti-anxiety medicine. This is a step you should take at least a day or two before the fireworks start so you can see how your pet will respond to the medication. Another option is to buy a specially designed, snug-fitting jacket which comforts dogs by applying pressure around their bodies.
  • During  fireworks, make sure your dogs or cats are in safe, indoor places where they cannot escape or get hurt. Turn on music or television for comforting background noise. You also can play a game with them or give them a favorite toy.
  • After the family barbecue, don’t treat your dogs to leftover bones, chocolate, or other human food. The bones often splinter and may become a choking hazard. The safest policy is to avoid giving human food to pets because so much of it can be harmful to them.
  •  Don’t let your pets stay outside in the heat for long periods of time, especially if they’re not used to it. If pets do get overheated, spray them down with water that is cool or room temperature – but never ice water, which causes a decrease in blood flow to the skin and makes things even worse.
