I was honored to be invited to participate in the Preservation Napa Valley‘s upcoming exhibit. Here’s a sneek peek of a few of my contributing images:
Preservation Napa Valley presents their 2011 Community Preservation Project: Memory Bank: A Discovery of Old Hands, Old Faces and the Way It Was, May 20th-June 30th, at 1400 First Street, (next to John Anthony Tasting Lounge). A very special exhibition opening with all Old Timers, Photographers and Filmmaker will be held May 20th, 5-7pm.
Memory Bank: A Discovery of Old Hands, Old Faces and the Way It Was
One Filmmaker, Six photographers and Sixteen Old Timers
This unprecedented photographic and film documentation of Napa Valley Old Timers presents the work of six local, professional photographers and a filmmaker who captured fourteen unsung Napa Valley Old Timers. From Pope Valley to Angwin, Rutherford, Napa, Calistoga, American Canyon and beyond, each of these Old Timers played a part in a once quieter, smaller Valley… a time that preceded the glamour, glitz and reign of Napa Cabernet.
Farmers, teachers, fruit truck drivers, dairy men, naturalists, homemakers and hay-makers; these are the folks that watched the transformation of Napa from a vast and diverse agricultural bread basket to the viticultural powerhouse Napa Valley is today. It is the last generation that holds the memories and stories of a place and time passed. The exhibition will be curated by Jennifer Garden, an established and well known curator from the Napa Valley museum.
This six week exhibit has been made possible through the generous support of The National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Gasser Foundation, Cathy D’Angelo Holmes of Coldwell Banker Commercial, John Anthony Vineyards and Drapinski TV &Audio.
