Putting on Power - Artist Reception
Please join the City of Santa Clarita on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., in the Community Room, at the Old Town Newhall Library, for a reception celebrating the newest exhibit “Putting on Power.” The exhibition, which will be on display through September 25, 2018 features a collection of American Indian masks. Masks are an important part of American Indian culture. Some masks relating to the clan families were used in healing, coming of age, and ghost feast (grief) ceremonies. The masks are constructed out of the materials on hand; wood, gourds and paints and items such as feathers, horse hair, straw, and other elements may be added for further embellishment. Each mask is unique and carries its own charm.
Enjoy this vibrant collection of art, meet the artists, talk to others that are excited about art, and enjoy light appetizers and entertainment.
