Artists of the Meridian

 Thursday, April 9 at 5:30 PM

Designed by George Washington Smith and Carleton Monroe Winslow in the 1920’s, the enchanting Meridian Studios on De la Guerra Street has drawn more than its share of incredible artists. And no wonder; not only was the architectural concept of north-facing studios with living lofts appealing, but “meridian” signifies the point of highest development, the peak or zenith of one’s profession.

Between 1922 and 1977, nineteen storied artists lived and/or worked at the Meridian – including such names as Spirit of the Ocean sculptor Ettore Cadorin, a homeless Huguette Clark, deaf cowboy artist Joe De Yong, portraitist Edith Catlin Phelps, the incredible Adele Herter, and ill-fated muralist Gordon Kenneth Grant.

Reservations required! Members $20/Guests $25
