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

The art exhibit at the Kern Valley Museum for September 2018 is entitled, “Veiled Spaces: Non-objective Art and the Conceptual.” Artist David Cook explores the metaphoric and poetic interactions between artist and materials. Rather than creating a “picture,” his images and sculptures demonstrate how concept and process become non-objective art.

David Cook received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies from California State University, Bakersfield. Following two decades as an educator, his focus shifted to creating fine art. His knowledge of art history, theory, and philosophy support his studio work, consisting of contemporary drawing, painting, assemblage, and sculpture.

The public is invited to meet the artist on Saturday, September 8, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Kern Valley Museum.
