  • Botanical Serigraphs
    The Gene Bauer Collection
    All together for the first time, the hand-printed serigraphs of artist Gene Bauer are reproduced here in Botanical Serigraphs: The Gene Bauer Collection, along with her original notes. Over several years in the 1970s, on behalf of California Garden Clubs, Inc., Gene Bauer explored fifty-six arboreta and public gardens throughout the state of California, taking living plant material as the subject for artwork intended to educate and inspire. These serigraphs?delicate silk screen prints?were initially created for limited-edition booklets celebrating plant life in the Golden State, both native and introduced. From each drawing, she created a serigraph for the cover and illustrations of a booklet she handcrafted, bound with yarn, and sent to garden club officials each month.

    Philanthropy in Redlands
    Redlands, known as the jewel of Southern California?s Inland Empire, has prospered as the result of a strong tradition of civic responsibility. Faithfully and Liberally Sustained presents this rich tradition through stunning historical photographs, engaging narrative, and compelling commentary from citizens who continue to serve the community. Redlands archivists Larry E. Burgess and Nathan D. Gonzales vividly recount the stories behind the cultural, educational, and charitable gifts that make Redlands a testament to the continuing spirit of philanthropy.
