“Nature is the best teacher.” Green Greenwald

We are happy to host the colorful and lively work of local artist Green Greenwald. His “Treescapes” exhibit features creations inspired by nature. This magically mind-bending take on the ordinary is an experience not to be missed!

Originally from Milwaukee, Green attended the University of Wisconsin and Layton School of Art in Milwaukee. You may recognize Green’s painted car driving around town, looking like something you’d see in a cartoon. He’s also been co-responsible for the Cirque du Silly shows at First Night in Santa Rosa in years past, featuring sculpted-form creatures come to life through the magic of puppetry. Maybe you've seen one of his giant sculpted statue/pedestals representing giant koi. With a fascinatingly diverse background of art schools, rock bands, radio stations, performance art, and painting, Green Greenwald has an uncanny ability for the absurd, bringing his polychromatic style to everything he touches. For more information on Green, visit his website.

Reward yourself by visiting this bright and playful exhibit in Heron Hall Monday through Thursday, 9am-5pm. Because of the variety of uses of the hall during the week, please call ahead to make sure you can view the art (707-527-9277, x107). Another great time to view the art exhibit is during our Second Saturday of the Month Open Houses from 10am-3pm. They are FREE and open to the public.

Proceeds of art sales benefit the non-profit organization, the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation.

Heron Hall is located at the Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa, 95401 (closer to Sebastopol at the corner of Occidental and Sanford Roads).
