George Demont Otis' Visions of Marin

IN 1932, AFTER painting in 35 states and working as a Hollywood film designer and a professional baseball pitcher, George Demont Otis found his true home when he discovered the beauty of Mount Tamalpais and the rolling hills of Marin. Otis and his wife, Clara Van Tine, built a house on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in Kentfield, creating a showcase for their many artistic creations.

Twenty-five of Otis’ paintings are being featured in a College of Marin exhibition hosted in conjunction with the Kentfield-Greenbrae Historical Society. An opening reception will be held on October 1, with the show running through October 27. kghs.org
