DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY 2011
I am not sure but this open air exhibition held between November 1st to 7th, 1948 may have been the first group show put on by the newly formed San Fernando Valley Professional Artists' Guild. The animal sculptures atop the gateway identify the location as being on the property of the president and founder of the Guild, Henry Van Wolf. The woman seated by Mr. Van Wolf is Mrs. Paula L. Sorensen, a member of the Guild and a singer.
