An Eye for Adventure: Photographs by Jack London

When: Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through April 15

Jack London (1876-1916) is revered as the quintessential American novelist and short story writer, and in the Sonoma area he is a renowned native son. Less well known are London’s explorations in photography. This exhibition will introduce an array of the writer’s photographs gathered from his adventures as a war correspondent and global sailor. Included are views from the Russo-Japanese War, San Francisco’s 1906 earthquake and fire, and visits to Hawaii and the South Seas islands. They reveal London’s avid curiosity, his perceptive and compassionate eye, and his remarkable comprehension of the then-new art of photography.

Price: General Admission: $10 Seniors (62 and over); $7 College students (with ID), Sonoma Valley residents, and seniors; Ages 13 through 17: $5; 12 and under: free; Family Admission: $15
