At the new studio, join us for drinks and taco truck delicacies included in the price.
As a Pasadena artist, Frances Gearhart (1869 – 1959) was immersed in the time, place and ideals of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Presenter Susan Futterman will talk about how Frances Gearhart’s color block prints of the California landscape personify a handcrafted aesthetic. She was bold in her use of color and powerful in the lines of key block. Seasons and times of the day captivated her. She celebrated the wintry day, the morning sun on the hills, the splendor of fall – hence the title, “Behold the Day”.
