Ren Brown CollectionAt the western end of Sonoma County, the Ren Brown Collection is a long-established and well-respected art gallery. Opened in early 1990 and housed in a refurbished building with shoji and a small, serene Japanese garden, the gallery is dedicated to showing contemporary art from both sides of the Pacific Ocean. A major focus of the gallery is on modern Japanese prints by living artists, including Toko Shinoda, Ryohei Tanaka, Yuji Hiratsuka, Iwao Akiyama, and others. Many have works included in the collections of prominent museums, and have been exhibited world-wide. Some of this artwork can be found nowhere else in northern California. The original prints are done in traditional woodblock, as well as more Occidental mediums, such as serigraphy, etching, stencil, and lithography – often on fine handmade papers. Subjects and themes vary widely, and images are both abstract and representational. Regional artists of Northern California (Micah Schwaberow, John Chambers, Robert Devee, Christopher Dewees, Noriko Hasegawa, and others) are also featured at the Ren Brown Collection. Works include sculpture, watercolors, woodcuts, acrylic paintings, serigraphs, monotypes, handmade paper, baskets, original jewelry and ceramics. In addition, the gallery features a varied selection of antique Japanese furnishings – tansu chests, step chests, trunks and more. Visit our gardens too!
