Frances H. Gearhart - Color Block Prints in Wichita

Regular Museum Hours February 28, 2021 | Wichita Art Museum

This exhibition surveys the work of one of the leading color woodcut artists of the early 20th century. Renowned for her dramatic landscapes of the California mountains, deserts, and shoreline, Gearhart’s use of saturated color and bold compositions reflect her pioneering interest in modern art and design. Gearhart, a Californian, was an important member of the Prairie Print Makers, the Wichita-based print society founded in 1930 by some of Kansas’ best artists. Organized by the Wichita Art Museum and guest curated by Roger Genser.
