Concurrent in Gallery II and III:
The Sculpture & Photography of
Genevieve Willson Barnhart
An exhibition of exquisite fine art selected from private collections in Sonoma County. It is rare to have the opportunity to view works by this caliber of artist and Sebastopol Center for the Arts is honored to be able to bring pieces by artists such as Francis Bacon, Enrique Chagoya, Viola Frey, Robert McChesney, Joan Miro and Pablo Picasso to our community. Additionally, in the ekphrastic tradition, a new poem written by established poets accompanies each piece. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy an exhibition at the intersection of both the visual and literary arts.
Concurrent events have been organized to enhance this exhibit experience. Attend FREE docent-led tours, listen to weekly poetry readings, attend a sensational John Cage film/poetry/music night, watch films about various artists and be inspired by the words of art historian Linda Loveland Reid who designed lectures tailored to the exhibited artwork and the artists. For more information, see descriptions below.
Entrance to all exhibitions at Sebastopol Center for the Arts is FREE.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 5 pm and have been extended on Saturday and Sunday to 12 pm to 5 pm
