A Survey of Women Artists Working in California, 1860-1960

Kat Ward Discusses “Emerging from the Shadows” in Hometown Pasadena

In anticipation of the upcoming exhibit at the Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre, Kat Ward covered the four-volume set with particular attention to several of its artists.

The Creative Arts Group in Sierra Madre is hosting an exhibit of 80+ works from artists Emerging from the Shadows, most of which have been in private collections and never available to the public.

Opening night is March 18 and a Q&A with Maurine St. Gaudens, Joseph Morsman, and Maureen Seigel Sprawls is open to the public on Friday, April 7.

Emerging from the Shadows is a 4-volume collection, organized alphabetically so “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.”
