The Bakersfield Sound: Roll Out the Red Carpet
A showcase of the major figures and stylings of the country music sub-genre known as the Bakersfield Sound, this exhibit celebrates the Sound’s aesthetic history, featuring more than 150 costumes, guitars, photographs, album covers and other artifacts.
Color + Figure: Paintings by Linda Christensen
A prominent painter from the third wave of the Bay Area Figurative Movement, Linda Christensen’s collection of paintings, though not intimate in size, express the tenderness of human nature through gestural brushstrokes and harmonious color palettes.
Uncommon Perspective: Paintings by Art Sherwyn
Art Sherwyn’s most recent work combines his use of vibrant colors with his love for storytelling. His striking color palettes and playful textures combine to celebrate familiar locations and neighborhoods around Kern County.
