April 18, 2015: The Paintings of Galen Wolf: A Legendary Retrospective

Special Showing – One Day Only

Galen Wolf (1889-1976)

More than 50 pieces of art by Galen Wolf were on display during this one-day show. An accomplished storyteller as well as a talented artist, his knowledge of the Coastside's history was acquired firsthand, through his own experiences and those of his family and friends.

The Half Moon Bay Odd Fellows hosted a show of Galen Wolf paintings which featured many of his "mosaics." Also exhibited were paintings by some of his friends and students. Galen settled in a cabin on the family’s ranch near Frenchman’s Creek in 1932. There, until his death in 1976, he sketched and painted the landscape he loved.

Shannon Nottestad, local historian, discussed Galen’s work. Copies of her book, Legends of the Coastland, reprints of the Wolf booklets, The Town That Was, Coastland, and 1885 were available for purchase. A limited number of original paintings were sold.

This unique exhibition was organized by Joe Brennan, Shannon Nottestad, Kai Tiura, Bree Tiura, Sarah Dias-Spraige, Jeanne and Steven Schapp.
