thing for sure is Sonoma County with its fantastic climate and thriving art community attracts artists of all types. Galleries, studios, and performing arts venues connect artists with the public. Sebastopol Center for the Arts offers a great catalog with a directory of art centers/home studios.
We highly recommend looking up a Uber Driver to take a venture through the hills of the Sonoma County and visiting the many home galleries, studios.
Downtown districts like Santa Rosa, Healdsburg, Sebastopol offer sweet boutiques.
