Biography from Gratz Gallery & Conservation Studio:

(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1900 - 1965)

A Philadelphia native, Gest attended the Pennsylvania Museum School of Industrial Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (1924 - 28) and L'Academie Scandinave in Paris from 1928 -1929.

She studied at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art under Hugh Breckenridge, among others, with whom she also studied numerous summers in Gloucester, Massachusetts. She made the Gloucester art colony her seasonal home for the majority of her lifetime.

She exhibited, along with her friend Edith Wood, with the Philadelphia Ten in 1935. Primarily a watercolorist, Gest was considered the most "modern" of the group due to her cubist stylistic tendencies; together she and Wood were regarded consistently as "more contemporary" than the other exhibitors.

Gest exhibited regularly at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1927 through 1960. She won numerous awards and scholarships, including the coveted Cresson Traveling Fellowship from the PAFA in 1928.

Her work was featured in many one and two-woman shows, and she was a member of many art organizations, including the PAFA Fellowship, Philadelphia Watercolor Club, the Contemporary Club, the North Shore Arts Association and the Woodmere Gallery, among others.
