Since the inception of the school, before we even had a proper gallery space, we have had professional artists showing, lecturing, and giving class demonstrations. We believe that exposure to the arts is an inherent part of education, and therefore, expose students to a variety of artists and styles that are not typically shown in Sonoma county.

Over the last 14 years we have shown a diverse group of artists from all over the world including: Pakistan, Tibet, Sweden, Germany, England, France, Russia, Mexico, Bosnia, the Philippines, Iran, and Cuba as well as local Bay area artists. We have recently partnered with the Chalk Hill Artist Residency and will be showing some of the artists selected through their program.

In addition, student show—including artwork from high schools in Japan, China, and Afghanistan—have been displayed and continue to be shown through our partnerships with the Joshibi School in Tokyo, Japan, SOLA in Kabul, Afghanistan and Beijing #4 in Beijing, China.

Gallery Guidelines

The Sonoma Academy Gallery looks for original artwork that takes an innovative approach and shows a sophisticated execution. Chosen artists should enhance the arts curriculum. Established and emerging artists interested in showing are encouraged to look over these guidelines.

Shows are generally up for two months unless another arrangement has been made between the artist and the school. In exchange for showing and taking no sales commission we require all artists to give a lecture or class demo. A stipend of $60 is provided for a class demo or short lecture.

Artists are responsible for hanging and taking down their own shows after 3:30 pm on weekdays or on the weekend as arranged between the artist and the school. Please bring your own hanging supplies. A dolly is available to transport the work from your car up to the gallery.

It is suggested that artists create their own labels, which include the name of the piece, medium, date, price, and artist contact information. Otherwise a binder with the same information can be left on the gallery table.

If something sells, the purchasing party will contact the artist directly to arrange the sale. The school takes no commission.
