Ginger Elliott Center: 840 N. Indian Hill Blvd., Claremont in Memorial Park
Claremont Heritage is pleased to present “Gleason Family Portrait,” an exhibition of art and design by one of Claremont’s most prolific and culturally influential families. The three artists represented in the exhibition are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of cultural impact that one family has made on Claremont and beyond. An interesting fact is that this history is relatively unknown, and without the scholarship presented in this exhibition, there would be a gap in our cultural history. We need to thank the family, especially Jane Gleason Morse, for her help in bringing this important body of work to light. The three artists in the exhibition, Mary Easton Gleason, her sister Honor Easton, and her son Richard Gleason, show an impressive history and body of work that is represented in this groundbreaking survey. The exhibition will also include a family tree that will expose a family history that was instrumental to the cultural development in Southern California. 6 to 9 p.m.
