Great Places Great Spaces 2013

March 15, 2013 to December 6, 2013


Douglas Fenn Wilson


A debut! Artist Douglas Fenn Wilson's seven-year labor of love- his newly completed house- is a renaissance tour de force, the artist's own architecture, interior design, handmade furniture, housewares, paintings, sculpture and ART!  You've seen it going up directly next door to the Glen Ellen Village Market, a modern/classical/futurist vision in a creekside setting.  The whiff of story we know in Wilson's paintings blooms, in his house, into a full-blown legend.  Cocktails, significant hors d' oeuvres, and a studio walk-through.

Friday, September 27, 6:00 p.m.

Atop a 22 acre secluded knoll with breathtaking views from Mt. Tamalpais to the Petaluma foothills lies a very special place called "Stonehill".  Enjoy fine wines and cocktails of your choice while watching the sun set across an infinity-edged pool.  Stroll through this unique home, guest house and gardens while you catch up with friends or just relax and partake of the exquisite hors d' oeuvres created by Catherine Venturini of Olive and Vine.

Christine & Jon Curry


The year is 1910.  Sonoma population 882.  From The Square, if you cut through the open field behind The Mission at Spain and First, and just past the Vella Cheese Factory on Second Street, you would come upon a privately run dance hall and the host of good times for local residents and weekend visitors.  Join Jon and Christine in what is now The Curry Barn, carefully rebuilt in 2008 by Landers Curry Construction, in accordance with our town's Historical Landmark guidelines, as the venue of this year's fabulous Holiday Dinner.


Friday, December 6, 6:00 p.m.
