Over 100 years ago a team of gifted craftsmen labored for 11 months to create The Gamble House. Inspired by the designs of Pasadena architects Charles and Henry Greene, the craftsman contractors led by John and Peter Hall, Scandinavian woodworkers, cut, turned, joined, carved, and hand-rubbed 17 species of wood into the House and furnishings that today are recognized as one of the greatest achievements in American architecture and craftsmanship.

“On the Verge of an Image: Considering Marjorie Keller” Contemporary Art Exhibition installed throughout the Gamble House from October 8-December 11, 2016.
