President’s Message

We are nearly into summer and it is tough to believe we have gone through several great exhibits this year here at the Court- house Gallery. This new show is no exception with the “Seascapes and Ocean Views” exhibit opening on June 9. You should definitely see this colorful show of terrific artwork by several fine artists from the Central Valley. Remember all of the art on display at Courthouse Gallery is available for sale. We accept credit and debit cards, and especially cash for payment. The wonderful and delicious provender we always have is provided through the generosity of Christie at Hometown Emporium. Please show her your appreciation by visiting Hometown Emporium for lunch or pastries.
Incidentally, my wife Sally and I conducted a couple of great author book signings over in Visalia with Mark Arax and his new book, The Dreamt Land. We have had a program on water in the valley on one of the video screens in the museum and this book discussed the issue in depth, including and especially the politics of water in the valley.
The Dreamt Land is available at Book Garden on Pine Street.
We hope to dedicate that wonderful hitching post in front of the museum some- time this summer. It is among the several artifacts in Exeter that were made up at the Rocky Point Granite Quarry over the hill south of Rocky Hill Drive.
The Board of Directors is working to continue to produce quality art exhibits for you. If you have any suggestions for artists or craftspersons who may have creations to exhibit and sell, please let one of us know.
We all thank our members and supporters for all they do to help keep us alive and viable as a gallery and museum. The organization’s success is centered around your participation and generosity. Thank you so much for all you have done to keep the Courthouse Gallery and Exeter Historical Museum open.

Chris Brewer
