Celebrating Women’s History Month at Asilomar State Beach and Conference Grounds PACIFIC GROVE, Calif. – Asilomar State Beach and Conference Grounds (Asilomar) will present “A Legacy in the Arts” - the story of Carmel artist Jane Gallatin Powers and her legacy to great-great-granddaughter, Big Sur artist, Erin Lee Gafill. The presentation, scheduled for Sunday, March 20 from 3 to 4 p.m., traces Gafill's roots in the arts back to her great-great grandmother, Jane Gallatin Powers, an early California painter who owned Carmel's first art studio. The presentation includes more than 100 images of early Carmel, Power's art, and Gafill's own body of work—her own “legacy in the arts”. Erin Gafill is an award-winning painter, writer, teacher and a member of the Carmel Art Association. Author of the memoir Drinking from a Cold Spring, a Little Book of Hope, she grew up in Big Sur. For more than 20 years Erin has taught art workshops in the United States, Mexico, Japan and Italy. She is on the creative arts faculty of Rancho La Puerta, Tecate, Baja California, and Esalen Institute, Big Sur, Calif. The presentation is free of charge, but due to limited seating, reservations are needed.
