HUMBOLDT ARTS COUNCIL at the Morris Graves Museum of Art 636 F St. Performance Rotunda: Music by Mister Moonbeam, a whimsical one-man band playing a recognizable but slightly warped brand of jangly 70’s-inspired folk-rock. William Thonson Gallery: “20/20 Vision”, a new juried photography competition and exhibition that celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the Morris Graves Museum of Art—20/20 Vision! 20/20 Vision: 20th Anniversary Fine Art Photography Competition & Exhibition. Sponsored by the Faben Artist Fund Anderson Gallery: “Recurrence: Avery Palmer Returns to Humboldt”, Avery Palmer is a painter and sculptor originally from Arcata, California. Inspired most notably by Surrealist painting, his figurative art presents ambiguous allegorical scenarios exploring the complex nature of the human condition, the subconscious, and the interconnectedness of all things. Palmer’s work seeks to explore the nature of humanity and to express the inherent complexity and mystery of our relationships to the world we live in and to each other. Combining familiar imagery in unfamiliar ways, he invents scenarios that can be thought of as puzzles with no right or wrong solutions—and perhaps no solutions for them are possible at all. These puzzles are analogous to the changing and perpetually unresolved nature of life itself. Knight Gallery “Gifts of Art”, for the presentation of collections during our 20th anniversary year, the understanding of art is being conflated conceptually with the celebration of donations of art that have been made to the museum during the last several decades. While each artwork embodies a distinct form of expression, they additionally represent the generosity of the donors who have chosen to move it from the private sphere of their personal collections into the public sphere of the museum’s holdings. Within each of these donations lies the belief in sharing with as many people as possible, the gift of art. Homer Balabanis Gallery/Humboldt Artist Gallery: the perfect place to find that unique, original gift. February’s featured local artist is Claudia Lima. The gallery features many exceptional Humboldt County artists currently working in our region. Designed as an artist cooperative, the gallery features local artists working in a variety of media from representational and abstract paintings, prints, jewelry, photographs, and ceramics. Museum Store/Permanent Collection: Artwork on view by Morris Graves, Glenn Berry, Melvin Schuler and Romano Gabriel.

Displays include a look at how the original Gold Rush era Chinese community in Humboldt County lived, historic items from Eureka’s Chinatown, a look into the popularized myth of a Chinese-free Humboldt County, and how Ben Chin and his restaurant re-established a Chinese population in Eureka.
