Showing Works by California North Coast Artists
Barry Semegran, CHAC's worker of wood in wondrous ways, has just been greatly honored. Jim Lotter, of Gualala wanted to make a gift to the Santa Rosa Symphony, in his father's name, Herb Lotter, so he designed a very special podium for the conductor, Maestro Ferrandis, and commissioned Barry to make it. In spite of Barry's accident he was able to finish the job on time. In October the podium was used for the first time to applause and admiration..
