Best Art Gallery in Sonoma County

In the Fall of 2007, I founded the Riverfront Art Gallery in Petaluma. I wanted a gallery that was designed just the way I want a gallery designed, where I and other local artists can show off our work in a great setting, so I created such a gallery.

Last week, the Riverfront Art Gallery, was voted "Best Art Gallery in Sonoma County" for 2010 by the readers of The Bohemian, the only county-wide newspaper in Sonoma County. Since I co-founded the gallery 2-1/2 years ago, we have been voted best or second-best art gallery in the county three times in a row (our entire existence). This year we hold the top spot all by ourselves. There are 54 gallery members in the Sonoma County Gallery Group, and there are many more galleries in Sonoma County that aren't members of that group. In fact there are quite possibly over 100 galleries in Sonoma County, so being voted #1 is quite a feat, and I thought I would brag about that in this post.
