The San Geronimo Valley Community Center is proud to host The Bagel Boys and Girls Silent Auction.

The show features works on paper by Harry Cohen, Lars Johnson Jon Newman and Karen Worth. This exhibition is being presented by the Bagel Boys and Girls as a fundraiser for the San Geronimo Valley Community Center.

The Bagel Boys began as an informal group of primarily Valley artists who met each Tuesday morning at the Woodacre Market to share stories, discuss art and stimulate their close friendships (and consume an occasional bagel).

The work is offered for sale by way of a silent auction.

75% of all sales will be donated to the San Geronimo Valley Community Center!
