The Museum and the Sun House Guild’s annual Gala goes VIRTUAL! In the year of COVID, there’s no way we could do our annual in-person Gala dinner and fundraiser. Instead, we’ll be presenting a live one-hour program on You Tube. It will be an evening of art, poetry, history, and music, AND we’ll be raising funds for the Grace Hudson Museum. This year’s Gala theme is From the Strength of Women. Inspired by the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

A treat planned for the virtual Gala program is a poem, specially written for the the occasion and performed by Theresa Whitehill, a former Ukiah poet laureate and good friend of the Grace Hudson Museum. Whitehill’s poem will be part of the hour-long presentation.

Prescriptions for Life: Collages & Writings

A Collaboration between Paula Gray & Theresa Whitehill

In this exhibition, visual artist Paula Gray and poet Theresa Whitehill, both of Mendocino County in northern California, collaborate on the theme of “prescriptions for life,” based on collages Paula created from a nineteenth century medical prescription ledger, along with Theresa’s writings exploring related themes, presented as a series of letterpress broadsides. The exhibit included the loan of two antique medical prescription ledgers (nineteenth and early twentieth century) from the University of California at San Francisco Library.

The exhibit opened the week that San Francisco underwent Shelter in Place orders due to the novel coronavirus and was closed within several days. The gallery never reopened before the exhibit closed in July of 2020.

Exhibit Dates: Wednesday, March 4 through Thursday, July 30, 2020
