Please join us to Paint Rocks! in celebration of International Sculpture Day on Sunday, April 29th from 1pm to 4pm. at the T Barny Gallery & Sculpture Gardens.
Inspired by the Kindness Rocks Project and Sonoma County groups Healdsburg Rocks, Santa Rosa Rocks, and Petaluma Rocks, we will be painting rocks to hide far and wide, spreading inspiration and a smile to all who come across them.
The Kindness Rocks Project is to Inspire others through randomly placed rocks along the way and Recruit every person who stumbles upon it to join in the pursuit of inspiring others through random acts of kindness.
This event is in partnership with the International Sculpture Center, Please let us know if you are coming so we can have a rock for you – email@example.com

The artists of Sonoma County are doing what we can to help foster hope and eke out smiles in a time where our community needs the healing, hopeful power of the arts more than ever.
I will be donating 25% of my Art Trails sales to RCU’s North Bay Fire Relief Fund, and I know many of my fellow artists are contributing to the relief effort in similar ways.
Each of us in the North Bay must to take time to recharge and care for ourselves in order to continue the collective forward momentum needed to rebuild in the coming few years. I believe that spending time with art is a great start.
Many of us Art Trails artists are open for studio tours this weekend, 10/28-10/29, from 10am to 5pm.
I have attached a list of studios that will be open this weekend, as well as the map of their locations. If it’s possible for you to do so, please pass this on.

T Barny’s upcoming exhibition at Hunter Kirkland in Santa Fe, ‘Synesthesia’, reflects his mission to engage with every sense of those who view his sculpture. The exhibition opens on September 8th, and will continue throughout the month of September.
T Barny is emphatic when he describes his work as ‘touchable.’ He wants his sculpture to not only be seen, but also experienced through touch. “In a world where physical contact is most often the result of tapping a screen, I want you to touch and twist my art.” T Barny puts a bearing in the base of each work, so that you can touch and turn the sculpture. His abstract sculpture features loops and ribbons of highly polished stone that create a new facade with every turn of the piece.
His show will include stone from Morocco to Italy, and from Argentina to Costa Rica. “I think the unusual patterns and colors of my sculptures encourages the use of all the viewers senses.” T Barny wants to stretch the way stone sculpture is viewed, and this show does just that.
T Barny has been carving for over 35 years, and showing in Santa Fe for 28 years. He has created sculpture from 205 different stone from 45 different countries.
