Craig Gilliland of Spindrift Gallery and Paul and Carol Kozal of Studio 391 founded the Art by the Sea Ranch Tour in 2011. Together their vision was to create an exceptional arts event featuring a select number of invited artists recognized for talent and artistic achievement. They wanted to create a venue that would invite and encourage visitors to experience fine quality art while promoting engagement with the artists in a unique, intimate setting.
The Art by the Sea Collector’s guide includes a portfolio of some of the work of the artist participants and a tour map for the event. The Collector’s guide is available to download from this website or you may obtain a printed copy at Spindrift Gallery, Studio 391, Placewares, Sea Ranch Lodge, Sprindrift Center for the Arts, Sunset Weekend, Art at the Source, Sebastopol Center for the Arts, Mendocino Art Center, Sonoma County Tourism – Bodega Bay, The Sea Ranch Architecture Tour, and several other locations in the Sea Ranch and in the community of Gualala.
