Photography Exhibition: "Life Along the Coast"

An exhibition of historic photographs from the Gertrude Southworth Collection will begin on Wednesday, July 8, 2015, and continue through Thursday, August 20, 2015. From the late 1890s through the 1930s, Gertrude Southworth used her artistic eye and Kodak camera to capture images of the small Marin County town of Bolinas, California. Drawn from the Bolinas Museum archives, these images of community gatherings, dramatic shipwrecks, and sweeping coastal vistas present an invaluable window into life at the turn of the last century. Admission is free and all are welcome. Prints are available for purchase. Please note: the Red Barn art gallery is open by appointment only, daily, 9 am to 4 pm; closed holidays and as otherwise noted. Please contact Carola DeRooy at 415-464-5218 or by email to schedule an appointment or for more information.
