Portraits of an Era Exhibition – Temporarily Closed
February 29 - March 1
The remarkable life of Ganna Walska is the subject of a new book written by her niece, Hania Tallmadge, entitled Ganna Walska: Portraits of an Era. In conjunction with this beautiful and important publication, Lotusland is pleased to present a special exhibition of original portraits, drawings, garments and costumes, in addition to seldom seen photographs associated with Ganna Walska’s unique life story. Madame Walska’s social, professional, and benevolent commitments brought her in close contact with musical and artistic luminaries, writers, politicians, actors, actresses, and international royalty, and she also communed with people from all walks of life, making generous contributions to charitable organizations and causes both great and small. This exhibition offers a visual glimpse into a life that reads like a Hollywood movie through images, garments, and material from the Lotusland archives that bespeak her creative style and depth of character. Our sincerest thanks to Ms. Tallmadge for helping to make this exhibition possible. The exhibition will be open through May 9 and is included with Garden Tours. Ganna Walska: Portraits of an Era is on sale in Lotusland’s Garden Shop and on our online store, www.LotuslandShop.org. Reservations are required, please call 805.969.9990.
