On display through January 6, 2019, the exhibition features the art of women who were art faculty or students at Scripps College and Claremont Graduate School-Jean Goodwin Ames, Barbara Beretich, Betty Davenport Ford, Marjorie Burgeson, Susan Hertel, Martha Underwood, Nina De Creeft Ward-as well as other local artists-Dora de Larios, Ingrid Petersen, Hildred Reents and Ellamarie Wooley. The artists were selected not only for their work as ceramists, painters, enamelists and sculptors, but also for their contributions as educators, promoters and community-builders for the arts after World War II.
