Gene Kloss - From Berkeley to Taos
Alice Geneva Glasier (1903-1996) was born in Oakland, California. For more that six decades she documented through printmaking, painting and drawing, the people and cultures of the Southwest with exquisite skill, profound respect, and an undeniable spirituality. It was because of these special qualities that she was welcomed by Native American and Hispanic communities and allowed to witness rarely seen ceremonies. Due to her meticulous observation and recollection, she provided the world with an insight into these culturally significant, often-private customs.
This exhibition follows Kloss' life-long journey from Berkeley to Taos, chronologically documenting her early years (1924-1933) her Colorado years (1965-1970) and finally her largest body of work created in Taos after 1970.
An Alliance Members opening will be held on Friday June 25 from 5-7pm. Click here for more information.
