In the History Gallery-California native Marvin Humphrey has lived and worked in St Helena since 1993, where he served as a postman for many years, and where his paintings have earned a loyal following of local and visiting collectors. He has an Art Degree from San Diego State, where he served as cartoonist for the Daily Aztec newspaper. In 50+ years, he has painted and sold more than 3000 oil paintings. His witty work is known for its pun-filled titles and trompe l’oeil depictions, most rendered in small-scale framed oil paintings. Says Humphrey: “At times, the inspiration is simply the visual beauty of the subject; at other times, it’s the fun of illustrating a thought, catch-word, phrase, homonymic pun, or cliché with a twist.”

An Opening Celebration on Saturday, September 29 at 5 pm is FREE for Members; $10 for Non-Members. Art sales during the exhibition will benefit the Museum’s arts and education programs.
