BCC | Pasadena Printmaker Frances Gearhart Celebrates California

Hosted/Organized by: Book Club of California

As a Pasadena artist, Frances Gearhart (1869-1959) was embedded in the time, place and ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement. Her color block prints of the California landscape personifies a handcrafted aesthetic. She was bold in her use of color and powerful in the lines of keyblock. 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.”

An exhibition of Gearhart’s work and a talk by Susan Futterman, author.
