Film nights celebrate Arts and Crafts movement

(The David B. Gamble House in Pasadena, CA. No more need be said.)

A classic Arts-and-Crafts house is a joy forever, to paraphrase a famous writer. (We at ArtsPage HQ are partial to the Gamble House in Pasadena, designed by the Greene brothers. Sigh.) Escape to a world lit by mica-shaded lamps and cushioned with Persian carpets via the California Arts and Crafts Architecture Film Nights, at Washington Hall in Seattle. Admission is $5-$10 per film.

Coming up:

–7 p.m. Feb. 14: “Designing with Nature: Arts and Crafts Architecture in Northern California” examines the work of architects such as Julia Morgan, Ernest Coxhead, Willis Polk and Henry Gutterson, who “sought to create an architecture suited to the landscape, climate and emerging culture of the region.”

–7 p.m. Feb. 21: “Pursuing Beauty: The Architecture of Bernard Maybeck” examines more than 20 of the Berkeley transplant’s projects, including the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco and Wyntoon in Siskyou County, California.
