The event, themed “Fables, Foibles & Fairy Tales,” will be held from 3-5 p.m. on Saturday, January 29 in downtown Solvang and will showcase Cronin’s works in a variety of forms, including bronze sculptures, silhouettes and poetry.
Cronin’s work, which has been exhibited in numerous museums and is in private and public collections, offers a touch of humor and ranges from a tiny “army” of bronze acorns running to the rescue to a poem 8 feet tall, according to a museum spokeswoman, who said the poetry on display is a creative result shot during the pandemic.
The exhibition, which is scheduled to remain on display until April 24, is also a special opportunity for art collectors to purchase.
Upcoming museum events:
- “Through the Looking Glass”: A talk with the artist featuring Cronin at 3:30 p.m. on February 12
- “Do Sculptures Speak?”: A Joint Artists Conversation with Cronin and Santa Barbara Poet Laureate Emerita Laure Ann Bosselaar at 3:30 p.m. on March 5
- “Voices in Poetry”: Cronin and Bosselaar will join the guest poets at 2 p.m. on April 2
All events are free and open to the public. The suggested donation is $5.
