First Friday Downtown and at SOFA!
Date: February 5, 2016 from 5 – 8 pm
On the first Friday evening of every month, the downtown Santa Rosa art galleries and venues are open late for your enjoyment. First Friday has become very popular!
The Meet the Artist Series at the Gallery at Corrick’s is a proud part of the Downtown Santa Rosa First Friday Artwalk, alongside the Calabi Gallery on 10th Street, the Annex Galleries on College Avenue, and the South of A (SOFA) Studios with Chroma Gallery on A Street!
Corrick‘s is delighted to be featuring Michelle and Abigail throughout the month of February, and especially to offer you the chance to Meet the Artists, this First Friday of February. Wine (generously donated by Annadel Estate Winery) will be available at $5 per glass, with the proceeds, together with 10% of art sales, going to benefit Sonoma Land Trust. Sonoma Land Trust is a local non-profit, dedicated to conservation and protection of our incredible Sonoma County natural beauty and resources.
This month, the SOFA District will feature ‘Small Works’, an entire evening focused on affordable artwork on the small side. At CMFA, they will show photography as well as mini mixed media works. It’s a casual evening where visitors have a chance to visit artist studios and get a first hand look at works still drying on the easel.

Sat., 2/6 – Celebrate Your Creek for Groundhog Day
In the spirit of Groundhog Day let’s resolve not to stay stuck in our routines but rather to venture out and try something new. Even the First Saturday Cleanup (which has taken place on the Prince Greenway monthly since 2007) is breaking the mold with a new twist.
Following the cleanup this Saturday (details below) Bill Montgomery will launch his first historical and botanical stroll through the Greenway. Bill served as the City’s Parks Superintendent when construction began on the Greenway in 2000. An avid historian, Bill will share tales of Santa Rosa before and after the Greenway and how Santa Rosa Creek influenced Santa Rosa’s development. These leisurely one hour walks will take place monthly from February through August.
First Saturday Cleanup on Prince Memorial Greenway (ages 5 to adult) On the first Saturday of every month help take care of restored Santa Rosa Creek flowing through the heart of downtown. The Greenway provides a home for river otter, kingfishers, egrets, and steelhead trout as well as parks, public art, and recreation along the six mile creek trail. Clean-up supplies provided. Date: First SATURDAY of each month
Time: 10:00 AM – noon
Location: Meet at Olive Park.
