Working with photographic images, hydrocal, acrylic paint and other mixed media, Stearns explores symbiotic relationships among living animals including hermit crabs and their anemones and oxpecker birds and their salon services to African wildlife.


In a slightly different vein, Stearns has created a large participatory piece exploring the variety of sex and gender among humans through the lens of diverse animal sexual reproductive strategies.  Participants meet various amazing animals and humans through images on cards as they are invited to place them in a spectrum.


The show opens October 4th and continues through the 29th.

There is a First Friday Reception for the artist October 5th, 5-8pm.


American Craft Week is coming to the Mendocino Coast. On Saturday October 6th at 1 pm,  Rachel Binah, known for her large paper constructions, is demonstrating her techniques making jewelry with unconventional materials.


Partners Gallery is located at 335 N. Franklin Street in Fort Bragg.

HOURS: Wednesday through Monday, 11 am to 5 pm and Sundays, 11 am to 4 pm., or by appointment. 707 964-6448 or 707 962-0655;
