About Jennifer White Kuri
Drawing from a diverse cultural and geographic landscape, Kuri’s work often takes a diaristic approach. She thrives in the space between the representational and the conceptual, allowing her to exploit contextual and perceptual shifts. Kuri was the only West Coast artist to be featured in ICASTICA, Tuscany’s prestigious international women’s biennale that presented forty renowned artists from six continents. Kuri is also the founder of the Global Women Project, a 10-year project featuring a series of large-scale multi-media portrait installations celebrating unique women who have dramatically affected their respective cultures. www.globalwomenproject.com She has exhibited in the United States and Europe in numerous solo and group shows including: Paris; Arezzo, Italy; the Napa Valley Museum of Art; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and Art Basel/Miami. Jennifer’s work can also be found at the Museum of Contemporary Art: Galleria Comunale d’Arte Contemporanea, Arrezo, Italy; it has been featured on the HBO television series Six Feet Under; and is in numerous private collections.
Tiburon Wine Festival
Saturday, May 14, 2016
1 to 4 pm
Tiburon Waterfront Standup Paddle Board Race
November 7, 2015
Tiburon's fascinating history and natural beauty also provide a variety of unique attractions. In Tiburon, the 1884 Tiburon Railroad-Ferry Depot Museum-the only dual-use railroad terminal to survive west of the Hudson River-is on the National Register of Historic Places. Old St. Hilary's, a Carpenter Gothic church set in the midst of a wildflower preserve, was built in 1888 and offers stunning views of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.
Ark Row, former houseboats on Tiburon Lagoon before it was filled in the 1940s, now houses restaurants and shops along upper Main Street. Tiburon Playhouse, site of the Tiburon International Film Festival, shows first-run domestic and foreign films.
No time? No muscles? No matter. Tiburon Uplands Nature Preserve, a tiny preserve tucked into a shady canyon along Paradise Drive, offers a very easy, 0.7 mile loop trail that's perfect for a quick hike or a leisurely wildflower walk. This little-known gem wanders through a thick forest of California bay, climbs moderately through woods with coast live oak and toyon, then segues to grassland, crossing a seasonal creek en route.
Angel Island State Park
For a short course in California history, board the Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry for the 10-minute boat trip to Ayala Cove, entry to Angel Island State Park. From here the 740-acre mountain island encompasses the history of the Golden State from its Coast Miwok beginnings to the Army presence through the Civil War, World Wars I and II, and most recently, as a NIKE missile base. Immigration's pivotal role comes to life at the Immigration Station, where thousands of mostly Chinese immigrants were detained-and some denied entrance to the United States-during a period of exclusionary immigration laws. www.angelisland.org
