Discovered: Emerging Artists of Sonoma County
Presented in collaboration with Creative Sonoma, Discovered features the ten recipients of the 2019 Discovered Awards. The five visual and five literary artists were selected from a pool of applicants through a highly competitive process for a chance to have their work featured in a major exhibition at the Museum of Sonoma County. In addition to the exhibition, the winners are recognized through a cash award, public readings, and a professionally designed catalog combining their visual and literary work. The goals of the awards program are to recognize excellence in the visual and literary arts, foster professionalism and increase exposure for emerging visual artists and writers, and to cultivate public awareness and appreciation of the role of creativity in our community.

31st Annual Artistry in Wood
Artistry in Wood is an annual exhibition presented by the Sonoma County Woodworkers Association (SCWA) in partnership with the Museum of Sonoma County. Staged every year since 1982, it is recognized as one of the premier fine woodworking shows in North America. Pieces accepted for exhibition must pass stringent criteria established by a board of jurors. Those accepted are then judged by a non-member panel of experts that awards prizes to the finest pieces in each of several categories including furniture, turnery and artwork. Awards of Excellence and Best of Show are coveted prizes that reflect the highest quality of artistry and craftsmanship.

Admission is free. Pre-registration not required.

Sponsor receives 2 tickets and recognition in the Museum’s marketing materials. Sponsorships are fully tax-deductible.
