Harriette Frances has had work exhibited in the three major museums in San Francisco as well as nationally and internationally

    LARKSPUR, CA, January 10, 2019 — Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Harriette Frances, aka Sherana Harriette Frances, with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Ms. Frances celebrates almost 60 years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Interested in art from a young age, Ms. Frances earned a scholarship at age 14 to a commercial art school in San Francisco and later, attended the S.F. Art Institute, studying life-drawing, painting and printmaking. Her training there in lithography became a life-long interest, motivating her founding of Artist's Proof Graphics Workshop” in Larkspur, Ca. (1974 until 2003) and her training at Tamarind Lithography Institute in Albuquerque, N.M., where she earned her Professional Printer's Certificate in 1977. An Honorary Member of the California Society of Printmakers (a worldwide printmaking organization) and a certified teacher in the state of California, she was formerly on the faculty of the College of Marin where she very much enjoyed teaching printmaking.

Following her first solo exhibition in 1964 at the Pioneer Museum & Haggin Galleries in Stockton, Ca., she was selected for a solo exhibit at the Legion of Honor Museum, S.F. in 1968 which, under the auspices of the Western Association of Art Museums, toured 11 Western States before being recalled due to theft and vandalism of the art, which reflected the political climate of the time.

Her work has been exhibited in the three major museums in San Francisco as well as nationally and internationally; i.e., Crocker Art Gallery; Stanford Art Spaces; Dominican College, Pratt Graphics Center, N.Y.; Brandts-Klaenfabrik Museum, in Denmark; a traveling exhibit in Britain with the Ca. Society of Printmakers; and more recently showed at “The Bankside Art Gallery,” London; and “International Invitational Exhibit of Prints” at Chung-shan National Gallery in Taiwan. Ms. Frances stopped counting the number of awards after they neared the 90 mark.

Still active in her studio, she enjoys time with friends, family, books, music, writing, and sorting through scrapbooks of her travels, her lifetime's output of art, and her former avocation: belly-dancing (where she assumed the name “Sherana”). She is an avid reader, writer and author of “Drawing it Out: Befriending the Unconscious (a Contemporary Woman's Psychedelic Journey),” in 2001).

In recognition of outstanding contributions to her profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Ms. Frances has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit www.ltachievers.com for more information about this honor.
