BOARD OF DIRECTORS HONOR FOR PATRONAGE

John A. & Cynthia Fry Gunn

Here at home, our education series was a great success with increased enrollment in drawing courses, outdoor sketching classes (at San Francisco City Hall) and lectures. The 2014 Annual Lecture Series wrapped its calendar with “Progressive Classicist: Arthur Brown Jr.,” and we proudly hosted national Board member Peter Pennoyer for a book signing with Anne Walker on the houses of Cross & Cross.


But the highlight so far this year was undoubtedly the inaugural Julia Morgan Awards at the Carolands. This stellar event, honoring fifteen award winners for their excellence in the contemporary practice and support of the classical traditions, was a tremendous success and a major fundraiser for the Northern California Chapter. These funds will go a long way towards our education programs, expanding our scholarship programs, and will continue to enhance our special events well into next year.


We are busy preparing our fall calendar which includes the ever invigorating Designer Day Lunch and Lecture at the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show. This year’s guest of honor is San Francisco’s 35-year design legend, Paul Vincent Wiseman, who will present a lecture entitled “Mindful Design and the Art of Storytelling”. More information on this event, as well as other exciting upcoming events, will be in our fall newsletter coming in September.


The passion and interest from our members and the generous support of our sponsors has made our Northern California chapter one of the largest and most dynamic chapters in the country. We are proud to be a part of a growing community of members who help to celebrate and promote the classical traditions in architecture and art.


We’ll see you at an upcoming event soon.


Sincerely,

As we continue to plan our 2014 calendar, please check our website for newly announced On the Boards office tours, education classes and lectures, book signings and other first-class programming and events.

BOOK SIGNINGS ~ Architect Peter Pennoyer and architectural historian Anne Walker, authors of the new book "New York Transformed: The Architecture of Cross & Cross", gave us a look at two of the early 1900s’ most important, but largely forgotten architects; brothers John and Eliot Cross. Counting the country’s richest and most influential figures among their clients,  they tended to gravitate toward an unpretentious luxury to give a polite and historically embedded expression of their  client's wealth.

EDUCATION ~ The educational programs are created with the intention of making them accessible for classical enthusiasts of all backgrounds. From ink wash rendering and watercolor, to proportions courses and drawing the classical orders, education is a vital component of the Northern California Chapter's programming each year. Whether you are an architect, a design professional, an artist, or an individual with a passion for classical architecture and the allied arts, we hope you will find a course that inspires you here.

BEST OF THE BAY AREA, CLOSING LECTURE ~ Dr. Jeffrey Tilman, architectural historian, lectured on Arthur Brown Jr., discussing his major works and the man within his architectural and social context, all highlighted in "Arthur Brown Jr.: Progressive Classicist".

 RECENT EVENTS

In celebration of our 10th anniversary, the ICAA Northern California Chapter was proud to present our Inaugural Julia Morgan Awards. The Chapter established these awards to recognize architects and designers, artisans, students and patrons on a local level for their excellence in the contemporary practice and support of the classical traditions.

The Northern California Chapter of the ICAA provides this and upcoming newsletters to help
you keep a pulse on what's happening and to let you know about upcoming dates and events.


Dear ICAA Members,


The ICAA has enjoyed a vibrant year. At the national level, we welcomed our new president, Peter Lyden, who comes to us from an illustrious career at the American Museum of Natural History. He has visited us here in Northern California and is enthusiastically promoting the mission of the ICAA throughout the country. Primary national initiatives are to restructure and improve the education programs in New York, increase exposure to the ICAA to students nationwide, and create continuing education opportunities for students online, launching this year in partnership with Boston Architectural College.
