Desta Gallery is excited to announce that Emebet Korn, the gallery owner, will lead a new art curatorial program at The Depot Café and Bookstore. Upholding The Depot’s tradition, the primary focus will remain on showcasing works from local artists. The inaugural exhibit will feature the work of Katheryn Holt, a long-standing resident of Mill Valley. Desta Gallery is delighted to collaborate with the dedicated ownership group of The Depot, led by Paul Lazzareschi, former owner of Vasco Restaurant, and Mark Martini. Situated in the heart of Mill Valley, The Depot seamlessly combines a charming café and a unique bookstore, crafting a sanctuary that caters to the needs of both locals and visitors.
The Depot Cafe and Bookstore is a beloved fixture in the Mill Valley community. The cafe offers a menu of delicious, locally sourced fare, including seasonally inspired menus, sandwiches, salads, pastries, coffee, and wine. The bookstore continues to offer a diverse selection of books, with a particular focus on works by local authors and on topics of interest to the community. In addition to its offerings as a cafe and bookstore, The Depot also hosts a range of community events and activities, including live music performances.
The Inaugural exhibition “The Promise of Feeling at Home,” paintings by Katheryn Holt, will be on view from June 7 to July 19. Opening Reception will be held on June 10, from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm – The artist talk starts at 5:30 pm – Live music at 6:00 pm by Musical Feast.
Katheryn Holt’s recent work reflects on “Home.” She states, “What for so long felt nearly impossible: the simplest idea of sharing oneself with family and friends has become once more a reality filling us with gratitude for the promise of feeling at home in our surrounding world.”
