Christmas Letters from C.E.S. Wood of the Cats Estate


Thursday, December 12, 7:00 - 9:00 pm
At The Art Museum (4 Tait Avenue)

Please join us for the first public reading of the personal Christmas letters of C.E.S. Wood to family and friends. Reproductions will be available for sale. Light holiday refreshments will be served.

In 1904, writer, lawyer, and owner of the Cats Estate C.E.S. Wood began celebrating Christmas by sending out Christmas messages in letter format. Not intended as poetry or literature, but as "sarcasm and propaganda" to family and friends, Wood's Christmas pieces most often attack the hypocrisy of Christianity and the commercialization of Christmas.

The Annual Santa Clara County High School Juried Exhibition is back! In this county-wide competition, The Museums of Los Gatos asks young artists to contemplate the idea that art is a conversation and to visually communicate their answers. For more information, visit our website or our informational facebook page created specifically for the upcoming show!
