Plumas County Mtlseum will host "Parallax: Viewing Quincy History Thru a Skewed Lens," an alternate- history photo exhibit by Chris Bolton, September through October in the Muse- um's Stella Fay Miller Mezza- nine Gallery. These recent works by for- mer Quincy artist Chris Bolton take the real world historical reality of Quincy's past and turn it on its head by introducing elements from different times and spaces.

Bolton has taken the genre of alternate or speculative, history, made famous by such writers as Newt Gin- grich, Harry Turtledove and, yes, even Mark Twain, and given it a visual outlet in this creative outpouring of "mockumentary" pho- tographs.
