Gallery Terrace Gallery San Marino, California 1986:

This Estate is located in San Marino and was originally built in the early 1930’s for the Holiday family, relations of Henry E. Huntington who created the world famous Huntington Library.

In 1986 Glen Hampton garden designs was contacted by the Pasadena Showcase House of Design and asked to restore the existing rear garden terrace. Although the residence is in the California Monterey Colonial architectural style, Landscape Designer Glen Hampton decided to have some fun and create an outdoor art gallery terrace.

An avid collector of modern art himself, Glen ended up contacting several unknown artists whose works he was familiar with. A paper mache cat appears to leap over a hand forged metal sofa with hand painted canvas fabrics creating the focal point of the lounging terrace. Ceramic sculptures, are displayed on the gallery terrace. All of the dining terrace furnishings were made by artist. The table was set with utilitarian everyday one-of-a-kind items made by numerous California based artists.

Landscape Designer Glen Hampton selected succulents, cactus, and grasses as the plant pallet, for their sculpture qualities. The dramatic night lighting completes the desired effect, through the use of custom designed gallery lighting set off by a colorful abstract neon painting.

Thank you for taking the time to view Gallery Terrace Gallery San Marino, California 1986... We hope you enjoyed it.
