If you’re into 1960s rock, save the date: Bob Holden from Don and the Goodtimes, Jim Valley from Don and the Goodtimes and Paul Revere and the Raiders, and Steve Lalor of the Daily Flash are coming on May 19 to Harbor History Museum in Gig Harbor to take part in a panel discussion on 1960s rock photographer Jini Dellaccio, whose large-format photography is now on exhibit in the museum in “With a Loving Eye: The Photographs of Jini Dellaccio.”

The rockers were each part of a group that was photographed by Dellaccio, who took iconic album covers and some of the first in-concert rock shots of groups like The Sonics, The Wailers and singer Neil Young, capturing the spirit of the times with elegant black-and-white portraits shot on her Gig Harbor property.

“We are very excited to have this panel of 60s rock stars together for this discussion. I am looking forward to hearing their perspective on Jini’s photography,” says Sue Loiland, executive director.

The exhibit also shows nature shots and other portraiture from this 95-year-old Seattle-based artist, spanning the last five decades of her work.

The program will take place at 2 p.m. on May 19. Admission to the panel is free for members and non-members pay admission ($6/$5/$4) plus $1.00. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early to ensure a seat.

The Harbor History Museum is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuseday-Sunday; the Dellaccio show is up through July 29. 4121 Harborview Drive, Gig Harbor. 253-858-6722, harborhistorymuseum.org, jinidellaccio.com
