From the Directors: Sacred Land

September 2019

Dear Friends,

We would like to invite you into an inspiring environment this fall—where everyone can reflect on the sacred in the land in Point Reyes—at our exhibit at Toby’s Gallery from September 5 to 30.

This Sacred Land: Images and Words from Point Reyes features Todd Pickering’s evocative black-and-white photographs with words from 15 West Marin community members. This show is one of Black Mountain Circle’s 35 offerings through our Geography of Hope: Sacred in the Land program this year.

Todd has been walking the curves and edges of the Point Reyes landscape most of his life. Interwoven with the images are the words of many local people: a farmer, a doctor; a surfer, a singer, a poet; an artist; two students; and diverse others. They tell of how and where they have come to know the sacred in the land of their home place.

Toby’s Gallery will become a habitat where all visitors are invited to invoke their own experience of nearby sacred landscapes by sitting on hand-made benches and reflecting on this question: Where and how do you experience the sacred in the land of Point Reyes Peninsula?

Please join us for two free events at the gallery:

  • Art Opening Celebration: Saturday, September 7th from 2pm to 4pm
  • Readings, Reflection & Music with Show Contributors & Curators: Thursday, September 26th from 5pm to 7pm

And if you are far away, and have visited or lived on the Point Reyes peninsula, email uswith a reflection or image. This Sacred Land is one response, with ample space for yours.

Steve and Kamala
