Jane Baldwin: Kara Women Speak

When: Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Dec. 6 2015

Through portraiture and film, Sonoma Valley photographer Jane Baldwin gives voice to the women of the Omo River Valley of Southwestern Ethiopia and Northern Kenya. Life-size photographs and accompanying stories capture the strength and vulnerability of each woman, each a holder of her ancestral wisdom. In the oral tradition of story telling their dignity is revealed. The exhibit includes: an audio tour of short interviews of the Kara, Hamar, Nyangatom, Dassanech and Kwegu women; a video of Baldwin working in-situ, cultural artifacts, and a short film of a Kara woman sharing her concerns for the survival of her people.

Price: $5 individuals, $8 families, free on Wednesdays
