This exhibit presents the art work of Friedolin Kessler (1913-1995), a local San Jose artist who sketched and photographed the California Missions and later he produced beautiful linoleum cuts that he reproduced into greeting cards. In addition, are several books that similarly reflect the beauty of the California landscape and the complicated history of the California Missions. This exhibit opening also celebrates the publication of Father Junípero’s Confessor, written by SJSU English Professor, Nicholas Taylor, which he will present on the First Wednesday series on October 2, 2013, with a book signing and reception following his talk.This event is part of King Library's 10th Anniversary Celebration.
