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

In “Southwest Art” writer Mackenzie McCreary covered the “Something Revealed” exhibit at the Pasadena Museum of History. The exhibit showed from the fall of 2018 until late spring of 2019. As Mackenzie McCreary had to say:

“The show largely focuses on artists who worked primarily in California and painted various scenes across the state. “So many of them were graphic artists, and their drawings capture early San Francisco and early Chinatown,” Morseman says. Artworks include oils, pastels, watercolors, lithographs, drawings, and sculptures. Many of the works have never been shown before as the artists were rarely hosted in galleries during their lifetimes. Featured artists include Belle Goldschlager Baranceanu, Elizabeth Borglum, Eva Scott Fenyes, Helen Lundeberg, and Vivian Stringfield.

The exhibition features more than 250 works by 160 artists. New works will be added in January 2019 to allow for exposure of more artists and artwork. Special events throughout the six-month-long exhibition will further the conversation about women in art. Information about these events can be found on the museum’s website. “We just want to get their names out there,” Morseman says. “They were trailblazers as much, and even more so, than the men who were given credit for many of the art movements here in California.” —Mackenzie McCreary”
