Kick off the New Year at the Tehachapi Museum
First Friday in Downtown Tehachapi 5-8 p.m., January 3, 2020
December 21, 2019
For Jan. 3 First Friday, join us at the Tehachapi Museum for champagne and appetizers to kick off the New Year! The Christmas decorations will still be up and all Christmas items will be on sale, including Christmas jewelry. Other selected merchandise discounted, also.
Special exhibits include a display of gnomes collected by Sheryl Bovi. The fanciful gnomes are shown in many different settings. They were sculpted by Dr. Thomas Fetzer Clark, known as Tom Clark, a native of Elizabethtown, North Carolina. Gnomes are legendary creatures found throughout Europe and the United States that live underground, in forests or gardens. Many European ethnic groups have gnome legends with local variations. Modern traditions portray gnomes as small, old men wearing pointed hats and living in forests and gardens. Several of the collectible gnomes by Tom Clark will be for sale in the gift shop.
A new exhibit in the Textile Gallery will feature warm winter clothing for children and adults, featuring fur items. If you missed the Christmas exhibit, an exhibit of Santas and Father Christmases from Kerri Esten, and Christmas Tree pattern china will be on display through January.
