Invitation to join a lecture on Women in Modern Art
Delve into the inspiring stories of influential women whose powerful works challenge rules, shift perspectives, and deepen understanding of women’s contributions to 20th and 21st century artistic movements, including Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, and Conceptual Art. Some of the featured artists are household names, others are groundbreaking social commentators you need to know, and all offer fascinating insights on the complicated road traveled by female artists, who persisted in pursuing their art despite personal, professional, and societal challenges.
The webinar topic is pertinent since we are nearing the centennial of the 19th Amendment when women were guaranteed the right to vote on August 18, 1920. I chose Georgia O’Keefe’s painting for the webinar invitation to commemorate the centennial of that remarkable move for women’s rights. View this video on the painting called The Lawrence Tree to learn more.
Just like the previous art lecture on David Park, Jennifer Reese will be presenting and I’ll be hosting/moderating/enjoying along with you. Everyone’s cameras and audio will be turned off so just sit back and enjoy. Following Jennifer’s presentation, submit your questions via the Q&A tab at the bottom of the webinar screen.
The webinar will be Friday, May 22, 2020 at 4pm. If you would like to join the call, RSVP to me prior to May 20 and I’ll send you the link. Everyone’s cameras and video will be off for the 4-5pm session and after 5pm, you have the option to stay on the call for further conversation.
