Inside the new art space on Sonoma Plaza

Musette – Live, Love, Create, Curate, a Sonoma Plaza storefront on First Street East, Musette is a new gallery, workshop, film studio, and event venue created by Sonoma artists Shiloh Sophia and Jonathan McCloud. In love, work and life, they have created together side by side for ten years.

Musette will be a space for local and global art exhibits, art classes, calls for art, unique gifts, and much more.

“The name Musette is inspired by a concept we apply in our Intentional Creativity classes – the Muse,” explains Sophia, owner, artist, and gallery curator. “The Muse is a reminder of the beauty, self-expression, and love in all of us. Musette is a space to honor that.”

Shiloh Sophia’s personal evolution as an artist began in childhood and her body of work, 25 years in the making, is focused on an approach called Intentional Creativity. It informs everything she produces – paintings, her custom art courses, her books, teachings, even the gallery’s interior design.

Shiloh closed her Healdsburg Gallery in 2016 after a sold-out show. She was ready to focus on teaching art instead of selling art. Under her guidance, MUSEA now has multiple creativity Certifications which train teachers, guides, coaches, and practitioners to work with others in Intentional Creativity.

The return to Sonoma, she says, was the feeling of “coming home,” called back to, “these trees, Sonoma Mountain, and the moon that is like no other.”
