Jennifer Bartlett and Elizabeth Murray were two major female painters (and friends) who came to prominence in the mid-1970s. Both artists’ work hovers between abstraction and figuration, often taking familiar objects as their starting points.
The third Wednesday of every other month at 2pm in the Print and Drawing Study Center within the main galleries. Free with gallery admission. In-person participation is limited to the first 5 registrants but the talks are offered virtually on our Facebook page via livestream.
Almost two-thirds of the FWMoA permanent collection are prints and other works on paper. The processes and techniques of printmaking are vast and can be highly technical, making this medium both fascinating and mystifying for many. During Print Room talks we will examine examples of printmaking techniques up-close and learn about artists from the permanent collection, who chose to work with these different printmaking processes.
Print Room Talks are led by Curator of Prints and Drawings Sachi Yanari-Rizzo.
