San Geronimo Valley Community Center
March 2022 

The San Geronimo Valley Community Center is proud to present recent paintings by Sherry Petrini. 

Petrini, a Woodacre resident, received her MFA  from the SF Art Institute. She’s exhibited in numerous show with the Community Center including the annual Spring Art Show as well as other galleries and venues throughout the Bay Area.
About her work, Petrini stated: “As a kid I would color within the lines, as if neatness mattered most.  Today I know there is no way forward in my art without indecision and doubt, and usually a mess.  I want to surprise myself, and there is no certain way to do so without putting in the time and having the courage to fail.”

The San Geronimo Valley Community Center is very pleased to present the work of John Torrey.

John Torrey was born in New York City and lives and works in Lagunitas, California.  He has been drawing since he was a young boy. His training has included drawing at the Art Students League in New York with Robert Beverly Hale and painting with Chester Arnold in California.
He received a master’s degree in Architecture from UC Berkeley.
Torrey’s travels have taken him to many parts of the world including a six year period in the gulf states of the Middle East where he worked as a city planner. John’s art- consisting of drawings, paintings, and sculpture- often has themes taken from his travels and his work tends to be expressionistic in nature.
All of his art, including the sculpture, has a basis in drawing.
“I grew up in New York City where abstract expressionism was still the dominant force in painting.  What I learned from those days is never go anywhere without a sketchbook for recording ideas, images, experiences.”
Torrey’s portrait of Descartes was included in the Sep, 2009 issue of Architectural Digest.  He has exhibited in the San Francisco Bay Area and other areas of the US, and is in private collections in New York, Boston, San Francisco Bay Area, Cologne, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, and Puerto Vallarta.
Reception Sunday, March 13, 4-7pm
