About this book

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 56 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. Gene Bauer is a master of the art of observation, and her creativity is rooted therein. "Botanical Serigraphs: The Gene Bauer Collection" is a book intended to evoke the sensory experience of the original booklets as if you were holding one in your hand.

Biography

While earning her degree in art education at the University of California, Los Angeles, Gene Bauer first learned serigraphy, one of the oldest forms of printmaking, in order to create posters and other teaching materials. Bauer served as native flora chairman (1972-1974) and arboreta and botanical gardens chairman (1976-1978) of California Garden Clubs, Inc. She lives in the San Bernardino Mountains where she spends time planting her well-known daffodil drifts and reforesting the areas burned near her home in the 1997 wildfire.
