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

This month’s movie will be the second Oscar Award movie...

partially filmed here in the Kern River Valley. It is The Treasure of The Sierra Madre (1948) starring Humphrey Bogart, Walter Huston, and Tim Holt.

It is a great movie about what gold fever can do to you. It takes place in 1925 Mexico, still a wild place, where the Mexican Federales dealt quick justice to bandits.

It is fun to see parts of our valley in a movie. There is a very young Robert Blake in this movie (TV show Barretta). .

Come join us at the Pack Station in the Museum back yard area on Wednesday, July 19th at 8:20 PM.

Popcorn is still a nickel and sodas are 4 bits (50 cents). We still root for the good guys and boo the bad. It’s fun! 

Mark your calendar - Wednesday, July 19th at 8:20 PM - Pack Station at Museum back yard.
