We are very grateful that the area families have donated antiques to the museum. We are hoping for additional grants to redo the Old Adobe. If you are traveling in this area, be sure to check out our little Museum. Additional information is available on www.coarsegoldhistoricmuseum.org. A Research book called "As We Were Told, is a collection of family histories and stories of the Eastern Madera County dating back to the 1800's and is available for purchase.
Creating with mixed media textiles, in vivid colors gives Vivian Helena the opportunity to draw from her variety of artistic talents. Fiber art, photography, gourds and jewelry design are some of her passions. Living near Yosemite National Park, and beside the Fresno River, Vivian’s love of nature is evident in all of her art pieces.
Her work is featured in “Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry”, and “1000 Artisan Textiles”. Vivian teaches at her home studio, and her art work is in Timberline Gallery, and Madera Circle Gallery in California.
