Special Thanks

Sequoia Gallery + Studios would like to acknowledge the contribution of long time board members, Lynn Adamo and Claudia Stockton, who recently completed their tenure as volunteer members of the Sequoia Board of Directors.

Lynn has served on the Sequoia Board for many years. Her guidance, community involvement, and marketing expertise have been greatly appreciated. Lynn plans to continue to volunteer on the marketing committee, while pursuing her own mosaic art business.

Claudia has served as both a community representative and educational consultant on the board. She is responsible for reinvigorating Sequoia’s educational program and has brought highly regarded art instructors to teach our art classes. Having recently joined Sequoia as an exhibiting member, Claudia plans to continue to coordinate our educational program.

Many thanks to both Lynn and Claudia for their many hours of volunteer service!

Open Studios Comes to Sequoia

Sequoia’s Ornament Tree

ornamentsFor the past several years, a wrought iron tree decorated with handmade ornaments has appeared in the window at Sequoia Gallery during the holiday season. The process of creating these ornaments begins early in the fall with a call to Sequoia members and volunteers. Some participants create ornaments in their favorite medium such as miniature painted canvases or wood ornaments. Glass artist, JoAnn Wellner, the creative brains behind the ornament tree, invites a team of Sequoia members to her studio to design fused glass ornaments. Our tree debuts in the gallery in November, however, we are giving you a sneak peak at the ornaments. The proceeds from the sale of the ornaments go towards supporting Sequoia’s mission of bringing high quality art and art education to the community.

For more pictures of our ornament making visit Sequoia’s Facebook Page
