In Mendocino County, two enterprising women help make those dreams come true. Tobi Ross of the Ross Ranch in Elk and Lari Shea of the Ricochet Ridge Ranch, located in Fort Bragg.
Art in the Redwoods
The year 1961 was pivotal for the art community in Gualala, for it was then that two local women, Betty O’Neil and Kathy (Rubel) DiMaio, were inspired by a visit to the Oakland Flower Show to stage a similar event at the Gualala Community Center. This small local art show would become the catalyst for Art in the Redwoods.
