Golden States of Grace at HSU First Street Gallery

Humboldt State University First Street Gallery presents Golden States of Grace: Prayers of the Disinherited. This acclaimed traveling exhibition of black and white photography aims to give image and voice to nearly a dozen virtually invisible communities on California’s religious landscape.

Created by acclaimed photographer and writer, Rick Nahmias, the exhibition documents rarely seen sacred worlds of marginalized groups: the outcasts, the fallen, those society has labeled as "other" - those for whom religion was arguably first formed, but who now worship as a means of finding refuge or of forging community where they would otherwise have none.

Golden States of Grace: Prayers of the Disinherited will run from Feb. 1 through March 3. HSU First Street Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. and is located at 422 First Street, Eureka, California. Admission is free and those planning group tours are encouraged to call ahead at (707) 443-6363. To learn more, visit
