What's Happening at Sequoia
All Member Show
Continues through January 29
First Tuesday Reception and 8th Anniversary
Celebration, January 5, 5 to 8 pm

Come in from the cold of January and brighten your days by viewing our All Member Show, celebrating our 8th Anniversary or taking one or more of our classes. 

All member show
This is the best time of year to view artwork from all our members. The diversity of styles, mediums and content represented by our member artists is on display. Every year, the show has a different "look" reflecting the current generation of active Sequoia members. But the one thing that never changes is the spirit of cooperation and friendship that pervades our Sequoia community of 30+ member artists, including 13 studio artists, and many teachers, volunteers and friends. 
Sequoia Gallery

You are invited to join us on January 5th, 5 to 8 pm. for cake and spirits to celebrate this occasion. Sequoia Gallery marks another year of beautiful artwork on display; fun workshops and classes; and exciting events such Plein Air @ Washington County and Hip2BSquare. With you we are toasting the end of another fine year, and are looking forward to a new year of growth. Throughout 2016, come see our featured artists' new work, as well as expand your creativity with our classes and workshops, or participate in our upcoming events.
