Until you taste their food, here's a taste of what the PD had to say "... Against all odds, this little storefront restaurant, in the space that was once the Seaweed Café, perched on a hillside above the Bodega harbor marina, has pulled off a culinary coup. In a Wine Country stuffed with world-renowned restaurants, it is, in a quiet and unassuming way, among the best."

Tut Returns to SF's de Young Museum Coffinette for the Viscera of King Tut
Coffinette for the Viscera of Tutankhamun

The King Tut Exhibit opens at the San Francisco's de Young Museum, June 27, '09 through March 28, 2010. Thirty years ago, the “Treasures of Tutankhamun" first visited San Francisco in 1979. Read more ...

For thirty-two and one-half centuries, Tutankhamun's remains rested undisturbed. But since Harold Carter discovered Tut's tomb and reintroduced Tut to the world in 1922, the boy king has been drafted into service as an ambassador to citizens of a far future age, charged with teaching them about Egypt's antiquities and culture and, through worldwide museum tours, helping finance their preservation. Tutankhamun, better known to the world as King Tut, ruled Egypt from 1333 to 1324 BC. He began his rule when he was around 8 years of age, and died when he was 17 or 18. Tut made his first appearance in his new role 3,246 years after his burial.

This will be the longest single stay for a traveling exhibit in the de Young’s history. The exhibit includes 130 artifacts from the King's lavishly adorned tomb. Many of the items have never traveled outside of Egypt before. Highlights include a gold crown and two coffinettes containing fetuses believed to be the children of the King. The famous gold mask of Tutankhamun, centerpiece of the 1979 exhibit, no longer travels out of Egypt. Several reasons are given, including the high cost of insurance.

The original exhibit in 1979 was a blockbuster, focusing on the splendor and beauty of the objects. This exhibit is more extensive, and seeks to educate more, placing the boy King in his historical and social context. Exhibitors are striving to enable those who view the exhibit to have a richer idea of where King Tut fits in time, and how he got to be where he was, even though he died at such a young age.

The exhibit has been on the road since 2005, visiting Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Philadelphia, London, and its most recent stay at the Dallas Museum of Art. Visit this link for tickets, and it may be a good idea to include the dates your out of town visitors will be in the area. California sixth-graders have Egyptian history in their curricula, and the museum is reserving Mondays for school visits.

Since the 19th century, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot has been and still is a touchstone influencing California landscape painting. The Santa Barbara Museum of Art will exhibit 12 of Corot's paintings plus some drawings and prints beginning the Fourth of July through October 11, 2009.

Jean Baptiste Camille Corot was born in 1796 and died in 1875 and was the leading artist of the Barbizon school. His work bridges the French and Italian neo-classical period while anticipating the plein air French Impressionists. Corot's father apprenticed Jean-Baptiste to the drapery trade, but Corot did not like the tricks of the business

world, and soon found the courage to dedicate his life to painting. At that time, landscape painting was popular in Europe, and was generally divided into two groups. At the time, The neoclassicists were popular, and painted idealized scenes with ancient, biblical or mythological themes. But another group was on the rise which offered more realistic scenes of northern European landscape, architecture and plant life which often featured figures of peasants. In both of these approaches, artists would sketch in the field and create finished paintings in their studios.

In 1821-1822, Corot studied with Achille-Etna Michallon. Michallon had young Corot do sketches and paintings outdoors, including in the now famed forests of the Fontainebleau. Corot visited Italy from 1825-28. Although he claims not to have learned much from Italian painters (even though he considered Leonardo da Vinci his favorite painter), he spent much time among Rome's architectural wonders and the Italian countryside. He was challenged by the Italian light. He was also fascinated with Italian women. He said, “They still have the most beautiful women in the world that I have met….their eyes, their shoulders, their hands, and their asses are spectacular. In that, they surpass our women, but on the other hand, they are not their equals in grace and kindness…Myself, as a painter I prefer the Italian woman, but I lean toward the French woman when it comes to emotion.” But Corot did not marry. Rather, he dedicated himself to his painting, saying, "I have only one goal in life that I want to pursue faithfully: to make landscapes. This firm resolution keeps me from a serious attachment. That is to say, in marriage…but my independent nature and my great need for serious study make me take the matter lightly.”

Corot was the leading painter of the Barbizon school, and laid the foundations of impressionism which would come after him. Claude Monet said of him, "There is only one master here—Corot. We are nothing compared to him, nothing."

The focus of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art's exhibit is to celebrate Corot's influence on California's landscape painters. Care has been taken to show paintings of unquestioned authenticity and quality.

Santa Rosa's Charles M. Schulz Museum Honors the 65th Anniversary of D-Day
The Charles M Schulz Museum presents
"To Remember: Charles Schulz Commemorates D-Day,"
May 27 - October 12, 2009.
Schulz Musuem Santa Rosa

We know he played hockey, but its still difficult to imagine Charles Schulz as a warrior. The soft spoken gentleman who faithfully provided our daily dose of Peanuts seemed anything but a hard edged soldier ready for battle. But a soldier he was. During WW II, he served as a machine gun squad leader in France, Germany and Austria. And with an old soldier's dignity, he remembered.

In later years, Charles Schulz called D-Day the most important day in the twentieth century and redundantly added, “there are certain things that must never be forgotten….  It’s one of those days we must not forget.”

Charles Schulz did his part to help us remember.

Cartoon courtesy of the Charles M. Schulz Musuem, Santa Rosa, CA © United Feature Syndicate, Inc.

In the mid 1990's, he dedicated his June 6 Peanuts strips to the anniversary of D-Day, featuring Snoopy storming the coast of Normandy. He was honored to serve as the National Fundraising Chair of the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia. The Memorial, dedicated in 2001, pays tribute to the heroism and sacrifice of all Allied Armed Forces during the D-Day invasion.

The Museum will host a reception on Friday, June 5th at 1:30 p.m. honoring local surviving servicemen and women of World War II. The 65th Anniversary of D-Day on Saturday, June 6th will be offered as a FREE DAY to all Museum visitors from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. See the Museum's website for direction and hours.

Formerly to be found at Pt. Reyes Station's William Lester Gallery,
Robin is now at the Banana Gallery in Hawi, Hawaii on the Big Island's North Kohala shore.
Banana Gallery Exterior Hiwa Hawaii
Banana Gallery Interior

Whether you are planning a trip to the Big Island or an online visit to Robin's Website, the treat will be delightful. Her delightful new Banana Gallery features he own paintings and the works of other artists painting the marvelous Hawaiian landscape.

As she did with with the William Lester Gallery in Point Reyes Station, she brings out the best of contemporary local artists, many of whom have well established Bay Area roots. Stop by in person, or visit her website, write her and let her know what you think. Better yet, consider buying a painting of Hawaii. Perhaps you can't be there year round, but viewing a Banana Gallery painting on your wall can give you a refreshing Hawaiian moment each day.

The small luscious town of Hawi hugs the northern slopes of the Big Island, just across the strait from Maui, and on clear days, affording marvelous views of Mt. Hakeakala. Just down the road past the famed statue of King Kamehameha II, you can gaze over the northern' shore's Pololu Valley. Back in Hawi, across the street from the Banana Gallery is the famed Bamboo Restaurant, destination of the pilgrimage for potstickers, coconut shrimp, a memorable mai tai and other delights. There is also an ice cream parlor that is a favorite of everyone's, a bakery, and other shops.

Robin enjoys the pleasant lifestyle of the Big Island, and enjoys hearing from her friends and fans everywhere. Give her a call and let her know when you might stop by. It is one of those small road trips easy to do from anywhere on the Kona side of the Big Island, and one of those rare places to enjoy original and unique art with a plein air sensibility that pleases us and those who are fans of fine art rather than the ubiquitous fare of tourist shops.

Email Notification of Newsletters

We're making improvements

Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery Sign
The internet has gotten complicated - an understatement. We had been issuing our monthly Newsletter notification emails ourselves, but we ran into prevention of multiple emails by our email accounts, and we think that some ISPs are screening or blocking them. So we're going to try Constant Contact, which various galleries and art organizations have also started to use. Constant Contact issues permission-based emails and has its own strict protocol. It may possibly issue emails to our address list asking for permission, and if those emails don't get a "yes" response, addresses will be dropped from our notifications.

In the process of investigating this, we came upon some interesting information. Emails processed by Constant Contact have prominent "unsubscribe" links. If you are not interested in receiving a Newsletter or other notification from various issuers that contact you, use this type of link on the various emails you receive, unless you specifically want to punish or report the sender. If instead people use the "block" or "junk" buttons on their email page, this will operate as a negative report to their ISP, which may in turn block ALL mail from that source, from reaching ALL of their subscribers. Negative action from ISPs can cause Constant Contact to refuse to handle the issuer. If this were to happen to us, we might end up with no way to contact people by email even for invited reasons such as to tell them about something they asked us to watch out for. If we issue an email and it never reaches the intended client, we usually have no way of knowing that. But Constant Contact should be able to tell us if there is a problem.

So watch out for your Constant Contact notification, and don't be afraid to respond. Clicking a simple link on such a well-established service does not have the dangers that we have all heard about in connection with opening unknown attachments or providing personal information to pfishers. (We embarrassingly fell for a "" message recently, and alert you not to fall for that.)
Sincerely, Dan and Linda | Back to the Top
