Glenna Hartmann, 1949-2009, influenced the national resurgence of pastel painting. As an educator and early a member of The Oak Group she led Santa Barbara artists to a renewed appreciation of our local beauty, inspiring them to go outside and paint. Her sylvan vistas capture local landscapes as idylls, but the strength of her commitment to preserve the land and support other artists was the background to her artistic influence.
