The gathered works are by students of Pam Glover, one of the foremost acclaimed local landscape painters of the Bay Area and an instructor at the Orinda Community Center for 25 years. Glover died in 2010 at the age of 88. Glover herself was a student of the work of the “Society of Six,” a recognized group of East Bay outdoor landscape painters whose impressionist techniques and style were passed on to Glover. And after Glover’s death, her students — many now successful artists in their own right — continued as the Glover Group.
