The Community Center is proud to present the work of Tim Cain in the Valley Room of the Maurice Del Mue Galleries from July 6 – 29, 2022.
There will be a reception for the artist on July 10th from 4-7 p.m.
After he parted ways with the Sons in 1970 he joined a communal farm in the Six Rivers National Forest, near Willow Creek California, wanting to raise his young family in the deep woods. After 14 years they left that farm and headed back home towards Marin, first spending a year on the island of Kauai before returning to Tim’s beloved West Marin in 1985.
When back in Marin, Tim began to perform for kids. This fun pastime blossomed into a joyful 30 year career of sing-and-dance-along performances and recordings for children. Tim’s concerts provided an opportunity for children, as well as parents, to participate in a positive group experience with singing and movement. His warmth, good humor, and spontaneity made his shows engaging and accessible to all. Lots of laughter accompanied a rollicking good time! He knew that happy childhoods last a lifetime, and his efforts contributed to that goal by giving young audiences a dose of joy they would cherish and remember. In his work, he not only imparted his love of music, but offered himself as an example for the kids; at age seven Tim contracted Polio and was paralyzed from the waist down, needing crutches for walking for the rest of his life. Nonetheless, he believed children benefited from seeing him, with his handicap, as “just a regular person whose legs don’t work”. He charmed his young audiences with the same indomitable spirit that helped him overcome adversity, and his happy-to-be-alive attitude is infectious and inspiring.
“I’ve always loved painting, but until the pandemic arrived I was too busy with my music to devote as much time to it as I would have liked. Covid 19’s “introvert’s paradise’ allowed me to spend much more time at the easel, and I am proud to present to you my work from the last 2 years.”
