Reception for “The Beginning, The Original Nine” Exhibit
October 16, 2016 @ 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The Chaffey Community Museum of Art was founded in the spring of 1941 by Francis and Helen Line of Ontario, California in memory of their daughter Barbara who died of leukemia at the age of eight. The Permanent Collection began with nine paintings now designated as the Barbara Line Memorial Collection. The Lines wanted to stimulate the interest in and the enjoyment of art in the Chaffey Community. At the time, the Chaffey Community was roughly defined as the eastern part of Los Angeles County and the western part of San Bernardino County. Much of geographic area had been influenced by the founding of early pioneer George W. Chaffey.
