Community Art & Celebration!

Honor the Past... Celebrate the Future! is an unique exhibit of local arts & artists put on by the Mendocino Presbyterian Church and hosted at OPEN-DOOR-ARTS @ Odd Fellows during June '09.  As part of the 150th Anniversary of the Church, this project honors 13 heritage artists who helped make Mendocino what is is today... as well as over 50 current artists living and working in the Mendocino environment...

Leone McNeil Zimmer, known best for her stained glass, dreamed of this show and at 93, Leone is an unstoppable force. Artist Janis Porter did the heavy lifting to make it happen-- including getting artists involved, hanging the show and opening & closing the doors daily.  These women demonstrate the real spirit behind great art & community effort!
