Petaluma Creative Reopening Parklet Program

The Petaluma Downtown Association, in partnership with the Petaluma Arts Center, is creating four parklets in Petaluma to facilitate outdoor dining. 


Parklet 1:  Ray’s Deli & Fassbinder Gallery Western Avenue, Artist Eli Slaydon

Eli Slaydon is a Petaluma resident, a painter and sculptor with diverse knowledge of the trades and a social background in the art world. He has been a freelance art installation builder for the past four years for a variety of projects including: Installation and Prep for the Shirley Fitterman Art Center at the World Trade Center, building and installing a large scale sculpture for Nari Ward at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, and the gallery installation and art handling for the Paul Kasmin Gallery and Alba, New York.

Parklet 2:  Stockholm Restaurant and the Bagel Mill, Artists Nicki Adani and Zoe Fry

Nicki Adani is a Bay Area sculptor, designer and painter. Born in Munich, Germany, she studied fashion design at the French Design School ESMOD, and has been working as a designer in Europe, NY and CA for 25 years. In 2016, she began studying sculpture, followed by ceramics, welding and metal fabrication. She brings her design and pattern making experience into her sculpting work, and found her passion in building in wood and steel, relishing the opportunity to mold and configure materials that at first seemed unyielding to create art pieces that offer viewers an inspiring experience.

Zoe Fry, founder of The Introverts Collective - a group of artists committed to exploring the intersection of Art, Consciousness, and Social Activism. In the last few years, Fry has discovered she loves conducting teams to create big visions, creating containers and canvases for others, all while tackling social issues. The Ovule Project, presently at The Petaluma Art Center, in Petaluma, Ca, is an exploration of the feminine identity. Hearts of Gratitude Global Art Project was a response to pandemic fear, and her present project, Perspectives: Past, Present, Future, is on exhibit in the Depot Square in Mill Valley California. Perspectives, three freestanding doors, educates about systemic racism in Southern Marin while creating a space for Black and Brown bodies in a predominantly white space. As a seed grant recipient from The Rex Foundation, The Introverts Collective plans to bring Perspectives to Marin City, Point Reyes Station, and beyond.
