Exhibition

Rattled
Reception and Collector's talk on October 1, 2015 (6-8 P.M.)

One of the earliest toys devised for children, baby rattles have evolved over the centuries into a variety of shapes and sizes. They are symbolic of how design responds to socio-economic factors and cultural identity, and represent a design chronology of style, function, sound and materials. This exhibition features over 100 rattles from the important collection of Lu and Maynard Lyndon, the founders and owners of Placewares+LyndonDesign in Gualala, California.

Curated by Lu and Maynard Lyndon and Tim McNeil

The Image of Fashion: A Photographer’s Legacy
Reception and Lecture on Jaunuary 7, 2016 (6-8 P.M.)

Curated by Jo Ann Stabb and Susan Taber Avila 

Paul W. Hollingshead (1896–1974) studied at the New York Institute of Photography in 1922 and worked for Edward Steichen taking high fashion photos for Vogue and Vanity Fair magazines. In 1928, he returned to California and settled in Woodland in 1932. Upon his death he left an archive of photos to his sons Bill and Edward Hollingshead that document changes covering five decades. Experimenting with lighting, background, props, and poses, the photographs capture evolving styles in clothing and fashion as well as the sitter’s preferences from dashing movie star glamour shots to warm, friendly family photos. Fashions and accessories from the UC Davis Design Collection will be paired with these period photographs bringing them to life with tangible artifacts.
