Weblog | Gallery California | C Ribet

Along with the new web site come the Weblog and Photo Weblog pages. I will try to keep information about events and miscellaneous items current here. Since the website is completely new from scratch. Today, June 18, is ground zero! Blog entries will move around as they are updated.

Thank you all for coming! Raffle and auction winners are being notified and can come by the gallery/showroom to pick up their pieces.

Thank you to all the local San Rafael businesses helping to promote the event - Kamikaze Sushi, Evolutions Home Furnishings, Ollini Furniture, Artizmo Gallery at the Northgate Mall and others too numerous to mention!

Steve Mack of Framing Interiors of San Rafael has kindly agreed to be available at Friday's event to answer any and all questions about custom framing and matting and other presentation related questions you might have about how to present and prepare artwork for display. Steve has owned and operated his custom framing business for over 28  years and has an experienced eye for aesthetics which you'll be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

We've selected the Garuda woven art for the raffle and will be letting the lucky winner of the Garuda to take either of two rugs which will be on display or to choose any custom woven 4x6 Garuda ($1200 value) as their prize. Upgrades are available. C Ribet works will be debuted at the event itself. We'll have both a silent art auction of C Ribet and  we will include at least one C Ribet work in the raffle. We want you guys to leave this event happy! 

The musicians performing for the Friday night preview event for the Off the Wall Celebration of C Ribet will be Farzad Arjmand and Fazz. Fazz is San Francisco's premiere flamenco-jazz ensemble, blending Spanish romanticism and 'flamboyant fusion' with Farzad's rich acoustic guitar. "Captivating and takes you to another place..." Be sure to RSVP to participate in this special celebratory event on Friday before Saturday's public opening. We are looking forward to seeing you all there at the opening.

See you next year! Notes from the events page: The Sausalito Spring Faire is held the first weekend in May in beautiful downtown Sausalito. Our 36th Annual Faire will be held on the weekend of May 6th and 7th. Enjoy 100+ artists, fine food, wine, live music and a children's entertainment area featuring music, theater and activities just for kids! Admission to the Spring Faire is free. This family oriented Sausalito art festival benefits the Sausalito Nursery School.

Just dropped off a good supply of C Ribet posters at the Gallery California Marin location in San Rafael. Please visit the gallery there to see new prints and now the posters!

We are thinking of choosing a new hosting provider for the gallery california online gallery store. Please give us your feedback on the current gallery store, and what changes you might like to see there.

We are still working on improving the new Gallery California site. We've added some dynamic slide shows so you don't have to click around so much to see a wider variety of the gallery photography. Please make sure javascript is enabled on your web browser to see the gallery slideshow.

We are finalizing the invitations and putting together the lists for mailed invitations. If you want to receive a mailed invitation, please use the RSVP for for the C Ribet Off the Wall Celebration at the Events Page. We'll preferentially notify be email (saves trees), but if you want a mailed invitation we'll be happy to send you one.slain

Added some more dynamic content at the home page (and possibly to sidebar) to use Javascript to enable changing links into the main gallery store. If you have trouble viewing the javascript 'Dynamic Preview' or any of the 'Static Preview' pagelets in the sidebar or main pages, please let us know. Each time you load the page you should be presented with a different table of links into the main art gallery section at the secure Yahoo store.

We've set the hours for the Off the Wall Celebration. The main opening event will be from 11 am until 5 pm on Saturday, July 29. If you are in the area, please visit us Saturday. The exclusive preview on Friday for trade only will run from 4 pm until 9 pm on Friday, July 28. Please RSVP to Marin Floor at (415) 453-3310 to attend the Friday event. If you will attend Saturday, and RSVP will help us plan, but it not required. See the main events page for details as we get closer to the event. It will be a great show with lots of new C Ribet to be had!

As you have probably figured out now if you've looked at the events pages, we have decided to use The Yin and the Yang as the image for the show announcement posters and invitations. This keeps the wraps on the new works to be released at the show, and it's a great image which works well when printed on other media. We'll have show posters from previous events at the show as well.

I am working on some great new images for the upcoming show. I'll probably pick one of the new images for a show poster as well which will be available at the event. More as work progresses and maybe a preview or two...

Off the Wall Celebration

Preparations for the Off the Wall Celebration event (July 29) are underway. The first show posters are printing and this web site is getting a huge facelift in preparation for the big event! I hope this will be as successful as our benefit auction in Santa Rosa last fall.
