People’s Choice Award Voting Ends Dec 19, 2010. We want your vote to count!

We’re loving your comments, and appreciate them too, but for your favorites to count as votes among the many received, this is the process:

  • Address an email to
  • In the Subject line, write the artist’s last name and the title of their artwork
  • Click “Send”

That’s it! But if you just can’t make up your mind, come to our gallery, Art Honors Life, 1 hour north of San Francisco among the orchards and vineyards in west Sonoma County, California. See the show in its glory. It is beyond spectacular. The scope of FUNERIA’s 5th biennial exhibition, embodying qualities that include evocative design and superb craft in the broadest range of media is enticing visitors to return multiple times with family and friends.

In addition to nearly 100 pieces in the main gallery in our current exhibition, there are typically 80 additional handcrafted urns, keepsake sized vessels and personal memorial objects in other display areas… each of which is available for sale or may inspire a specially commissioned piece. The scope of work available represents the best being made by artists worldwide who were chosen through the rigorous jurying process that sets the standard in all of FUNERIA’s Ashes to Art exhibitions. This is truly an unparalleled selection of contemporary funerary art.

But don’t take our word for it. The unique work we’re doing and offering is being championed by any number of unbiased sources. You’ll find great reviews and must-see accolades in many media outlets, from being featured in Harold Schechter’s The Whole Death Catalog and Canadian journalist Tom Jokinen’s Curtains, both of which Random House published in the past 2 years, to a delightful and cheeky description in Lonely Planet‘s [Encounter] guide to the unique pleasures found in Napa and Sonoma Counties.

Thank you Alison Bing! You captured not only FUNERIA in a nutshell but the Lonely Planet guide—a perennial favorite for travel-savvy, off-the-beaten track hipsters—is filled with numerous insider spots that define the joys of discovery… as we learned when visitors from Vancouver BC arrived one day in the gallery holding Bing’s guide in their hands.
