Beth Hartmann joins the ranks of sculptors exhibiting frequently in our section “Artists Thru the Years”. Beth explains her work, “Although many of my materials are modern, at least when used in art (rusting rolled steel, metal mesh, copper and wire), I work to expose universal emotions. My themes involve our environments and health.”
Volunteering can be fun and satisfying. The Cloverdale Sculpture Trail is putting together a creative coordinating team to replace the current coordinator who is retiring. The current coordinator will continue until the team is up to speed and will always be available for questions and assistance.

Derrick a Sculpture by Jam Collective
Derrick, a sculpture by Sonoma County Sculpture Jam artists, Beth Hartmann, David Furger, Jeffrey Zankel, John Packard, John Draper and Gordon Carter of Sebastopol, has been silent since being installed on July 22, 2020. “Derrick” has decided to break the silence. This sculpture has a number of messages for passerby on the E. side of Cloverdale Blvd. between E. Second Street and E. Third Street. For the curious, visit “Derrick”, who has posted directions as to how to access his messages.
For those who have not visited “Derrick”, the sculpture references old-time derricks. It holds up a solar panel which powers its piercing red eyes and, at night, initiated a hidden projector to direct a slow light spiral on the ground. The spiral mimics a drilling action. Is this the hybrid transition from old dependency to renewable solar energy? ” Derrick” acknowledges our continued reliance on boring oil, but he’s looking toward greener energy sources.”
