‘Putting on Power’ Artist Reception

What: The City of Santa Clarita presents “Putting on Power,” a new exhibition of Native American masks, on display now through September 24, at the Old Town Newhall Library Community Room. The community is also invited to a public art reception on Wednesday, July 11, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The Old Town Newhall Library is located at 24500 Main Street in Newhall.

The exhibit highlights the Native American mask in its different variations and purposes. Masks are an important part of Native American culture. Some masks related to clan families have been used in healing, coming of age and ghost feast (grief) ceremonies. There are three different types of masks: a single face which is a simple mask, a mechanical mask that can contain moving parts and the transformation mask which combines two masks into one. The masks can be made out of varying materials often including wood, gourds and feathers. Each mask is unique and carries its own charm.

For more information regarding the art exhibit, please contact Jeff Barber at Jbarber@santa-clarita.com. For information regarding all City art happenings, please visit SantaClaritaArts.com.
