Following on the path set by Mendocino Coast photographer Larry Wagner and his two volumes of Artists of the Mendocino Coast, Ree Slocum’s book Artists of Inland Mendocino County profiles some of the most committed, talented, and creative artists found in inland Mendocino County, CA. Slocum photographed portraits of each artist and wrote an informative page about each artist that includes images of their work.
Ree's background is as a black and white film photographer, working as a freelance photojournalist and B&W lab technician in the early 1980s. She has a fine art photography business, Arcadian Images, sells her work in the Bay Area at art fairs, and is part of Corner Gallery Ukiah. Her work can also be seen at Blue Sky Gallery and JD Redhouse in Willits.
There will be two book signings:
Location: Willits Center for the Arts, 71 E Commercial Street, Willits
Date: Saturday, December 5 from 7 to 9 pm, in conjunction with the Willits Photo Club Exhibit downstairs
Location: Art Center Ukiah Annex, 203 S State Street, Ukiah
Date: Sunday, December 20 from 3 to 6 pm
It's a great chance to meet the artists, view their work, and buy an autographed book. Part of the proceeds will be donated to both art centers. Refreshments will be served at both events. The book sells for a special low price of $60 at both events. It will be for sale at bookstores and online for $65.
