Known as a beat era artist and poet, Sutter Marin’s extraordinary paintings of the 70’s and 80’s were far out of the visual arts mainstream.

A new selection of antique, modern and contemporary artwork in all media from the gallery collection will also be on display. Exhibit is on display Oct. 18 - Nov. 26.
