Humboldt Collects!

February 4 to March 26

Why are we a nation of storage units, packed basements, and reality TV shows about hoarding?

Humboldt Collects presents extraordinary collections from Humboldt County residents, exploring the fascinating practice of collecting. Celebrating the intrinsic beauty and insightful stories found within the collections and the people who make them, this show examines how the items we collect inform notions of who we are as individuals and a community.

From the Collection: New Acquisitions

February 4 to March 19

From the Collection: New Acquisitions puts on view, in many instances for the first time,selections from collection newcomers. These works have deepened holdings of previously collected artists and serve to introduce new artists to us. The exhibition also serves as a reminder of the generosity of many donors who understand the value of sharing great art with our community.

Ellen Litwiller: Natura Morta, Natura Viva

January 28 to March 5

Rocks appear to be inanimate and dead to us however they go through incredible transformations during their geologic lifetime.  The oldest rocks on Earth are 3.8 billion years ago and they will be here in one form or another long after we humans are gone.  The heat, shifting and uplifting that occurs in geology can all be associated with our own lives and how we also form through personal experiences of pressure, eruptions and erosion. These images of rocks are brought into a more traditional setting to encourage a fresh awareness and affection for the ground beneath our feet.
