The Kern River Valley Historical Society is celebrating over 50 years of operation! Our mission is to preserve and communicate the rich and colorful history of this region. The Kern Valley Museum in downtown Kernville, next to the Post Office, welcomes visitors to explore our rich history.

What's Happening

It is exciting to welcome three new artists to the museum gallery. They are all very different in their approach to art.

Honora Violet paints delicate, subtly-witty works using watercolor as her medium.

Tina Gibson has a more “gung-ho” approach to her varied paintings. These are oil works that she produced in an introductory class in art at Cerro Coso college. She sure has innate talent!

Lillian Van Den Berg is an artist who is familiar with many media. In this show she has chosen her beautifully rendered ink drawings which depict her love of animals.

Please do come and enjoy this talented experience!
