The Book Club of California presents a talk by Susan Futterman - TONIGHT - 6:00-8:30pm at the Pasadena Central Library.
Pasadena artist Frances Gearhart’s work is embedded in the time and place of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Her prints, some of which will be on display, personify a handcrafted aesthetic, a sense of directness, and a boldness of color. Gearhart’s work celebrates the California landscape: its mountains, trees, lakes, and coastline. FREE admission. Books will be available for purchase.

ROOMS WITH A VIEW: A Private Tour and Reception

Please join us for an exclusive tour of the Duncan-Irwin house (1906-1908), Charles and Henry Greene’s masterpiece on the edge of Pasadena’s scenic Arroyo Seco. Rarely open to the public, this privately-owned home represents an important milestone in the architectural evolution of Greene & Greene’s work, predating The Gamble House. After years of careful stewardship, the Duncan-Irwin house stands today as a proud example of the best of the Greenes’ classic era. Come celebrate the completion of its most recent, painstaking restoration. Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of the current homeowners, our tour will include access to the entire home and gardens with a reception, live music, and program to follow. A curated collection of exquisite art and antiques currently fills the home, matching the Greenes’ splendor and eclectic sensibilities, and bringing it to life in a way that is as dynamic now as it was in 1906. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience one of Greene & Greene’s greatest Arts & Crafts houses, furnished in a sympathetic and inspired way that brings out its best qualities.

Happy Friday! We just had a ring at the doorbell at 5:05 on a Friday afternoon; two Italian tourists were at the door. When I told them the next tour is tomorrow morning they wanted clarification as to whether there is a “Back to the Future museum” in the house!

I suppose for some this is Back to the Future Museum of the Mind! #BTTF
