The Quercia Gallery opened its doors in 1990, in the historic town of Duncans Mills. The town is nestled in the rolling hills, surrounded by redwoods and is next to the Russian River, four miles from the coast.
Ron Quercia (pronounced quer-sha meaning “oak” in Italian), moved his gallery and frame shop from Petaluma Madison Street Gallery (est. 1980), to Duncans Mills. Ron reopened the Quercia Gallery bringing his reputation as framer, early California art collector, and gallery director. Ron exhibited over 50 artists in the new gallery which created a salon atmosphere.
In 1995, the Quercia Gallery merged with the Family Gallery which was part of the same historic building. Owner and director of the Family Gallery which opened its doors in 1987, Bobbi Jeanne, exhibited three generations of family members in Duncans Mills. She was raised in the town of Mendocino where her family had the first Family Gallery (est. in 1960).
The two galleries merged in 1995 and Ron and Bobbi Jeanne were married in 2000. Now owned and directed by the two of them, Bobbi Jeanne concentrates on exhibits and Ron the framing. Both work as a team to select and curate the exhibits.
Artists in there own right, Ron works as a plein air landscape painter in oils and Bobbi Jeanne works as a clay sculptor (you may view our personal gallery sites).
The gallery has a simple setting with good light to exhibit the individual artist’s work. The work that is usually shown has a common thread of abstracted realism, with various media and style.
