Featured in the Art Gallery

Iva Cross Fendrick is a fourth generation resident of Kern County of the Cross/Tilley Pioneers.

Her mother, Vina Cross was one of the founders of the Bakersfield Art Association. Her work is mainly watercolors with pen and ink.

Iva feels that we all have a need to reflect upon what gives us visual pleasure. “ When I see the soft shadows on the rolling hillsides, I long to capture that mood on paper for others to enjoy”.

At the reception on Saturday, July 8th from 4-6 pm, Randy Fendrick, Iva’s husband will be giving a book signing of his recently printed book “The Other Music of Bakersfield”.

Come to meet these two artistic people. 

The Art Gallery is open Thursday thru Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm
