The Sonoma Valley Library will be hosting six Sonoma Valley artist exhibitions during 2019. The artists and library were asked to participate by Patrick McMurtry, who works to promote local artists through his organization, Artist Access.

“I thought the library would be a great venue to show the work of local artists,” said McMurtry.

The artists will have their pieces displayed in the library for a month, during which time anyone can stop by the library to view the artist’s work.

January 2019 will feature Jonqui Albin’s large-scale installations, wire sculptures and paintings. Her work is inspired by conceptual drawings derived from live, offsite study sketches in 2D and 3D. The resulting works often incorporate original techniques and unusual materials. Having worked in the art scenes of Los Angeles, Berkeley and San Francisco, Albin is currently based in her Sonoma studio.

Albin will create a performance painting at a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 4.

March features Chas Blackford his sculptures and photographs.

Janet Yelner will be April’s featured artist. She works with canvas using mixed media of paint and papers.

Candi Edmonson’s plein-air oils will be exhibited in September.

In October, Melinda Moore will show her oil and water-mixable oils of landscapes, figures and birds.

Wrapping up the year, in December, David Barker will display his paintings.
