101 North: Forestville, The Quicksilver Mine Co.

The Quicksilver Mine Co. 6671 Front St. (Hwy. 116), downtown, (707) 887-0799. Thur-M 11-6. It is surprising to find a bright and friendly art gallery in this tiny, tiny town, but here it is. Though this is its fourth location, the Quicksilver Mine Co. has been around for 29 years--long enough for owner Khysie Horn to make plenty of connections with area artists (she displays 80 percent Sonoma County artists). One is 3D Edddy, who lives in Santa Rosa and makes delightful, and inexpensive, junk sculpture heads. The shop also sells books by local authors. An inviting sculpture garden with picnic table is available in back.
