Group exhibition

1929 Gump's

Gump's, San Francisco, March 11–23, 1929.

The exhibition included: Cypresses at Monterey, Pioneers of Monterey, Gray Day at Carmel, Old Laguna, New Mexico, and other desert landscapes and Grand Canyon and Yosemite views. Although a checklist for the exhibition isn't available, it's possible that these two paintings of the tidal flats in Oakland were among those included.

"The Gump exhibition shows Widforss' most recent work done in the deserts of New Mexico. It also includes typical California redwood and cypress paintings and other Western landscapes. Perhaps the most interesting of his studies are three impressions of San Francisco Bay viewed across the mud flats of lower Oakland. In these with a narrow strip of colorful earth, a nebulous city in the distance and a poetic sky, Widforss has created a delightful thing," (San Francisco Chronicle, March 10, 1929.
