Structure and Light: Artist Talk
The waterfront town of Benicia is where much of California's early industrial activity took place. The site where much of this colorful history came about is the subject interpreted in a new exhibit, Structure and Light at Arts Benicia, featuring photographs by Hedi B. Desuyo and monotype prints by Linda Grebmeier. The exhibit is on view through July 11th. On June12th at 3 pm the artists will give an informal talk about their work in the exhibit and their experience gathering images on the deteriorating Yuba Manufacturing site before its demolition in 2006.
In conjunction with the exhibit Structure and Light, curator Kathryn Weller Renfrow and artists Hedi B. Desuyo and Linda Grebmeier have worked with the Benicia Historical Museum to create collaborative programming at the Museum, home to many industrial artifacts from the Yuba Factory site, and these as well as historical photographs of the area are gathered and installed in a special exhibit at the Museum from June 12 until August 8, 2010. On June 12, the Artist Talk, featuring Desuyo and Grebmeier at Arts Benicia, will be followed at 4:30 by a talk at the Benicia Historical Museum about the Yuba Factory's history by BHM Curator Beverly Phelan, and will include a free tour of the museum's industrial artifacts, documents, and photographs.
Admission to the talk and to the Museum will be free.
