Aug. 2: Penny Wolin’s “Descendants of Light”

For the last eight years, photographer Penny Wolin has traveled the United States documenting and interviewing other American photographers of Jewish ancestry, chronicling the culture and different artists’ reactions to their heritage. Her previous photo documentary on the subject, The Jews of Wyoming, exhibited solo at the Smithsonian Institution, and now Wolin has a new project that she will be discussing and previewing called Descendants of Light. Wolin examined the works of photographers like Annie Leibovitz and Joel Meyerowitz, and a selection of Wolin’s photos and her new book will be on display when she gives a special arts lecture on Saturday, Aug. 2, at Calabi Gallery, 456 10th St., Santa Rosa. 6pm.
