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.

At the museum during the month of November

The Kern River Art Association Presents 


   Fluid Sculpture Art


Martin Varga





Martin's current project, Fluid Sculpture Art, uses fluids which have liquid or 

gaseous particles that easily yield and reshape when acted upon by force to

create unique textures and shapes.  A number of his images are created from a 

specialized form of fluid artwork through the use of colliding water drops and 

colored lights to create an artistic rendering of water sculpture images.  His

goal is that the final images will reveal to the observer an aspect of his art that

has never been seen before.  

Opening Reception 4:00 to 6:00 PM

Boy! The building at 60 Big Blue is serving the Historical Society well....

Not only does it house a collection of books and paintings from Gayle and Ardis Walker along with other important documents from our history-filled Kern River Valley, the beautiful building has also hosted an array of events this year

—history classes featuring interesting topics, preservation classes on how to save your precious photos and documents, and Bunco parties. (They had a ball!) Want to be a writer? We had a class on how to do that too! We previewed Wild West Country, Episode 3. One of our board members even treated the others to a sit-down dinner one evening.

The building is a super place to meet. I am amazed at the use it receives. You know the old saying, “Build it, they’ll come.” Well, they have! I want to thank all who arrange these special programs and presentations at 60 Big Blue. P. S. It’s a fabulous place for your hard working, spirited energy board of directors to meet also!

See ya around the museum,
