On Friday [Aug 4] the Grace Hudson Museum will be open from 5 to 8 p.m. as part of Ukiah's First Friday Art Walk. Musician Ron Nadeau will provide Japanese music using instruments such as the shakuhachi bamboo flute, which is used as an aid to meditation, and the stringed zither-like koto, Japan's national instrument. As always on First Fridays, admission is free.
The cooling effect will continue with the Museum's current exhibit, "California's Wild Edge: The Coast in Poetry, Prints and History." This traveling exhibition captures the beauty of the California coast from Mendocino through Santa Monica in woodcut prints and poetry, based on the book of the same name by Point Reyes artist Tom Killion and poet Gary Snyder.
The Grace Hudson Museum is at 431 S. Main St. in Ukiah and is open Wed. through Sat. from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 4:30 p.m. For more information please go to gracehudsonmuseum.org or call 467-2836.
