Day 1. Excellent progress.

Artists who have moved into the studio space more recently, like Chris Beards and Bill Shelley from Blasted Art Gallery, have put on ambitious and thoughtful shows which stretch the boundaries of Sonoma County’s art scene. They have brought an influx of new people to the neighborhood, and this energy has added to a palpable ambiance of excitement and enthusiasm.

Blasted Art Gallery here at Backstreet, is a contemporary showroom on its own, led by curators Chris Beards and Bill Shelley. We are lucky to have their fine take on visual thinking in our midst. There is always an interesting gathering of art in their space, not to miss.
— Mary Vaughan, SOFA artist

Blasted Art Gallery is located in the Backstreet Building
Art Alley, off of South A Street
