The Kern River Valley Historical Society has been in operation for over 40 years. Our mission is to preserve and communicate the rich and colorful history of this region. To achieve these goals we have established the Kern Valley Museum in downtown Kernville next to the Post Office.

During the month of April, Ceramics by Helen Smoot and Friends...

Helen, a local world renowned concert pianist, will be showing her additional talents of being a ceramist.

It is such a totally different discipline than studying, teaching and playing music--working with her hands getting all muddy in clay and never knowing what will result is exciting.

Helen will have some students and friends show their work along with her.

A reception will be held Saturday 15th April 4-6 pm. Do come to meet the artists and talk about their work with them.
