Join Markham Vineyards in celebrating the 45th anniversary of the legendary Woodstock music festival with the photo retrospective On Assignment: Woodstock, featuring photos from Rolling Stone Magazine’s First Chief Photographer, Baron Wolman. The exhibit consists of 50 pieces from the 100-piece collection which Wolman donated to The Museum at Bethel Woods. These selected photos will be on display at the Markham Gallery March 1 – August 31, 2014. Meet Baron Wolman at the artist’s reception on Saturday, April 19, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p. m. in conjunction with Napa Valley Arts in April. The artist's reception is FREE and open to the public.
The exhibit features photos of live performances, documentary portraits and studio/semi-posed portraits along with a wealth of background information regarding Woodstock and Rolling Stone Magazine. Wolman used three cameras during the festival and shot 16 rolls of black-and-white film. Those attending the festival are really the stars of Wolman’s work – they illustrate how the festival became a legend in so many hearts and minds.
According to Wolman: “No one could have predicted the enduring influence of the Woodstock experience. Yes, the bands were first-rate and there were many of them…but in unexpected ways, Woodstock became more than a concert for all of us.” His photos allow Woodstock attendees to relive a fascinating part of their lives while also appealing to a younger audience who wish they could have been there.
