284. The Artist Within – A Cedars Gallery

Walking along San Anselmo Avenue and glancing in the storefront window at “Artist Within“, your impression might be that it’s just a typical craftswork boutique. But step inside, see the looms being worked at the rear of the store, and you find that you’re in a unique artisans workshop, surrounded by custom textiles, weavings, three-dimensional art and paintings. All of these works are created by residents and day participants in the Cedars of Marin, an organization providing homes, education and social services for adults with developmental disabilities.

The textiles are absolutely beautiful – meticulously woven with a marvelous variety of colors and patterns and include many table runners and placemats. Paintings line the walls and there are mixed media pieces as well.

The weavers seem to love to have observers and are very welcoming of visitors. I highly recommend a visit either to pick up something special for your home or a friend’s, or just to see a talented weaver working their craft.
