The Padre Hotel was built in 1928. It has been beautifully restored. The gallery space is within the cafe called Farmacy. The hotel’s decor is rich and posh. When you enter the building it is easy to forget you are in Bakersfield.
My mother and her fiance surprised me and flew in from Montana for the opening.. What a great surprise it was! There were many visitors familiar and new. The show was well received by the public.
Hooves and Horns will be on exhibit through the end of 2012 and be updated with new works as pieces sell.
