Botanical Serigraphs: The Gene Bauer Collection Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Botanical Serigraphs: The Gene Bauer Collection features serigraphs and narrative text from handcrafted, limited-edition booklets about arboreta and gardens throughout the state of California. As an avid member of the California Garden Club in the seventies, Bauer dedicated herself to creating a series of booklets to capture the experience of touring gardens found in the club's districts. With a mission to better acquaint people with gardens in the area, Bauer created sixty-one issues of these booklets, which she mailed to club members. Botanical Serigraphs was made possible because original recipients and collectors of the booklets returned them to Gene after her personal collection of booklets was destroyed in a 1997 wildfire. Her attention to detail and keen sense for the extraordinary makes this book an excellent gift for artists and garden enthusiasts alike.

About the Author

Gene Bauer is perhaps best known as “the daffodil lady” for her elaborate daffodil garden.  For more than 50 years, Bauer artistically "painted the hillside" with more than one million daffodil bulbs, opening their land in Running Springs, California, to the public each spring for thousands to enjoy. Bauer served as golden native chairman (1972–1974), and arboreta and botanical gardens chairman (1976–1978), of the California Garden Clubs, Inc.
