Emerging from the shadows, art book, female artists, california artists, woman artists, maurine st guadensOn Thursday, March 31st, Maurine St. Gaudens, along with Joseph Morsman and Maureen Siegal Sprowles, will be discussing the recently released book “Emerging from the Shadows.” After the presentation there will be a Q&A and book-signing.

This presentation and book-signing is being held at the Flintridge Bookstore and Coffee Shop in La Canada on Foothill Blvd. The event will start at 7:00 pm.

As the news article in Pasadena Now stated:

“The groundbreaking “Emerging from the Shadows” examines 100 years of artistic output by remarkable women and shows examples of the work they created in California and throughout the world. The individuals portrayed are powerful, competent and thoughtful artists whose work encompasses a broad range of styles spanning the Realism of the nineteenth century to the Modernism of the twentieth century.

The women selected for inclusion were chosen not only for their artistic merit, but also for the role they played in furthering art culture in California. For many, their reputations as artists have been largely ignored or forgotten–this book finally recognizes and chronicles their notable accomplishments. Intentionally, the lesser-known artists are presented in the book alongside their more acknowledged peers; it is time for their personal shadows to fade and for them to emerge–and Emerging from the Shadows is a first step.”
