Since 1965 (if you can believe what you read on the Internet), the pulp mill at Samoa has been a fixture of the Eureka landscape. Now it's all but certain that the plant is closed for good, ending a chapter in our local history. Since the mill manufactured the raw materials for paper and Eureka Books is all about paper, we wanted to honor the mill in some way. Over the years, it seems most every artist in the region painted or photographed the mill, so to mark its passing, Eureka Books is holding a pulp mill art show in March. The show will open on Arts Alive, March 6, 2010, and will run through the end of the month.
We are accepting entries through February 1. Please drop off a photograph of your proposed entry (Eureka Books is at 426 Second Street, Eureka, CA 95501, across from the gazebo in Old Town) or email a jpeg (our email address is at the top of our homepage).
