The Community Center showcases local artists in our monthly exhibits in the Center’s Maurice del Mue Galleries in the Valley and West Rooms. We strive to introduce new artists and cultural forms, as well as bring back local favorites to celebrate the diversity of artistic expression.
Jackie Kirk Retrospective
The San Geronimo Valley Community Center continues its Virtual Artist Salon series on Sunday, September 19th from 5:00 – 6:00 pm with a virtual tour of the Jackie Kirk Memorial art exhibit. Jackie Kirk (1929-2021)was probably best known for her innovative “Face of AIDS”—a series of portraits of people with AIDS or HIV paired with self-portraits of the artist. The series was the subject of a one-woman exhibition at the Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts at the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco and Duke University Museum. Jackie’s daughter, Bobbi Wilson, serves as host in a short video of the exhibit currently on display in the Maurice Del Mue Galleries of the Community Center (the first in-person exhibit presented by the Center in over a year!) There will be time for discussion after the ‘tour’. Click here for the Zoom link.
The Jackie Kirk Memorial Exhibit has been extended to Sept. 24th and can be viewed at the Center Tuesdays through Thursdays, 12:00 – 5:00 pm. We hope that Sunday’s virtual tour will serve as a further inducement to those who are interested in seeing the show and an opportunity—at least a virtual glimpse—for those who can’t visit the galleries in person.
