The Center For The Arts Presents The Center and Beyond Exposed

April 3 through 20
Artist Reception: April 5, 5-8pm
Gallery hours Tues-Sat 12-5pm

The Center and Beyond Exposed is a photography exhibition by long time Center for the Arts Stage Manager and Photographer, John Taber. As Taber’s first ever gallery exhibition, this show will include many years of art and performances that have happened here in the heart of Nevada County as well as photos from Taber’s years with the Grateful Dead and the Rolling Stones.

Also on display will be autographed photos of artists from his personal collection.

Given his close involvement with the entertainment in this community and beyond, Taber’s photos expose many things that an audience member may not be able to see including stage views and backstage insights. This exhibition will cause you to reminisce over beauties of the past and excite the prospects of the future art in our community.

John comes with a 25+ year background in the music business and a life long passion for photography. Beginning in 1975 working for Bill Graham Presents in San Francisco and continuing there for 15 years in a variety of positions encompassing most of what it takes to produce a high quality event.  From ’83 to ’89 John worked extensively with the Grateful Dead, responsible for keeping separate the folks who knew the band from the ones the band actually knew.

After relocating to the Grass Valley area John has been a Volunteer Broadcaster at KVMR Community Radio for the past 8 years, hosting two shows currently. “Saturday Morning Live!” airs every other Saturday from 4 am to 7am. “Sleep if you must, Otherwise listen.” Also a monthly rotation on the station’s long running show “Dead Air” featuring Grateful Dead & related music.

John also works with KVMR as Executive Producer of their long running KVMR Celtic Festival & Marketplace, currently approaching it’s 22nd festival in the fall of 2018.
