Resistance/Persistance: The Life of a Sculptor
Artists’ Co-op of Mendocino will present Pat Scott, sculptor, as the November Artist of the Month, from November 7 to Dec. 3. Her show, titled Resistance/Persistence, reflects her love of resistant and challenging materials, requiring persistence and patience from the first blocking out to the final sanding and finishing. Pat has loved working in sculpture since childhood - collecting and assembling found objects or searching for native clays with her brother when West Los Angeles was mostly lima bean fields and irrigation ditches. She began wood carving at Girl Scout camp and continued to explore and study sculpture throughout her life, working in many media including clay, cement, bronze, wood and stone . One summer at the Oakland College of Arts and Crafts she studied stone carving and after moving to Mendocino in 1972, continued pursuing that medium with local teachers including Ruth Cravath, Flory Chowe, and John Fisher. Although her favorite medium over the years is marble, she recently has worked in metals using plasma cutters. No matter the medium, she is intrigued with the creative journey which she experiences as the interaction between sculptural ideas, the use of appropriate tools and the intrinsic attributes and limitations of the sculptural material. In the November show, there will be a selection of marble and alabaster works, and a variety of wall sculptures of wood, metal, Connamara marble, slate, bronze and computer parts. She will give the 2nd Saturday Artist Talk on November 11, 5:30 P.M. The gallery is located at the corner of Kasten and Albion Streets in Mendocino and is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Artists' Coop of Mendocino was established in June 1988 for the purpose of selling members' art. The first President was Warren Zimmer. The Co-op is owned and operated by the members, which number fifteen to twenty. Selected guest artists are featured periodically. The gallery was originally located on Main St. above the quilt shop, but moved to the present address in January 2016. We also maintain an online store which can be accessed from the menu at the top of the page.
Joe Bernard is our Featured Artist for May at the Artists’ Co-op of Mendocino. His exhibit, “Windows of Spain” from May 3 through June 5, includes custom furniture created with heart. Bernard’s craftsman roots stem from his ancestral homeland, Cadiz, Spain.

MARCH is local whale month. Be alert for events and excellent whale watching opportunities each year. Real whales can be seen spouting and breaching from the Mendocino headlands and other points along the coast. They may be spotted all year. We seem to have have an established group of year-round resident whales. Need binoculars? Visit Out of This World (Kasten and Main Sts) where some telescopes are pointed into Mendocino Bay.
The Eco-Artists of Mendocino typically have a show in March and in the Fall .
