Lots of events coming up, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Okay, so most of them aren’t Irish themed, but they ARE a great reason to get out this week, and do something other than drink green beer.

Many of the standard accounts of Abstract Expressionism fail to properly acknowledge the work of women artists. Both art historians and critics have marginalized such artists as Elaine de Kooning, Perle Fine, Joan Mitchell, and others. This lecture reframes the received canon of Abstract Expressionism by presenting the critical reception of women artists from the 1950s to the present.
