Each year, the Mendocino Art Center presents two exhibits featuring the finest works created by the Art Center's members. A highly competitive juried selection process leads to an exceptionally creative, high quality, and much anticipated gallery showing with a wide spectrum of artwork, including paintings, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, photography and more.
This year's exhibit is juried by Erin Dertner.
Benefit Lunch at Ravens' Restaurant
On Garden Tour day, the Ravens' Restaurant at the Stanford Inn by the Sea, the north coast's premier organic vegetarian restaurant, will host a special gourmet lunch. The meal is not the only sensory pleasure, with a breathtaking view from the dining room extending from the Big River Estuary to the Pacific Ocean.
Inspired by the Stanford’s Certified Organic gardens, the Ravens' Restaurant is outstanding and nationally acclaimed for vegetarian cuisine. Guests at Stanford Inn, as well as local Mendocino residents, consider Ravens' Restaurant to be an essential dining experience on the Mendocino Coast.
