Ainsley House Exhibition: Francis Cutting (begins) (public event)

Campbell's Ainsley House is pleased to present a new exhibit, March 1 - June 30, 2013 entitled The Painter Around the Corner: Francis Cutting, a California Impressionist.  Admission to the exhibit is free with the price of Ainsley House admission.

Francis Harvey Cutting was born on a farm near Riceville, Iowa on October 8, 1872. In 1893 he moved to Campbell, California. He attended San Jose State College and taught school for a brief time in Paso Robles, California. But inheritance from an uncle freed him from the necessity of working and he dedicated himself to painting. He remained a resident of Campbell for the rest of his life except during 1920-25 when he maintained a studio-home in Pacific Grove.
In 1927, Cutting built a studio and home at 125 Harrison Avenue, Campbell and remained there until his death on June 8, 1964. He was a prolific painter and Impressionist, using a bright palette to create landscapes of Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Pacific Grove, Columbia River, Crater Lake, the Redwood Highway, Death Valley, and the Santa Cruz mountains.
