First Tuesday ArtWalk Reception:

Experience the magic of coming together and enjoy the beautiful art and reception with drinks and music.

Amy Perl is a Northern California native who, from an early age, has had a keen interest in objects that hold a sense of history. This fascination with history later extended to people, and in particular the family histories of her own family and others’. As her eye for photography developed as an early teen, Amy was naturally drawn to documenting the forgotten histories imbued within junkyards, abandoned houses, and lost and found objects.

In the late 90s, Amy, her husband, and occasionally a few inspired friends, began a series of road trips from the Bay Area to locations throughout Northern California, Route 66, and the West. Today, Amy continues to expand her search, photographing people, objects and landscapes not only throughout California and the West, but throughout the Gulf Coast, and when she gets the opportunity, in Mexico and Europe.

Amy’s photographs capture the spirit of the place— the sense of what’s been there before, and the aspirations for what may have been. We see our selves and our stories in these photographs, whether they are truly ours or not. After spending some time with Amy’s photographs, they become part of our own personal stories, and evoke a found serenity that we all seek.


Free for members and non-members. All are welcome!
