CANCELED: Great Women Artists of the Early Twentieth Century
The current public health concern involving the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is continuing to unfold. The Library has been working closely with local and state authorities to make decisions that prioritize public health and safety. Out of an abundance of caution, all large events and events for Senior Citizens will be cancelled or postponed until such time as more information is available and health officials provide updated guidance. At this time, these are only precautionary measures as we consider and care for the safety of our patrons. We are working on rescheduling the program for the future.
This presentation will focus on three of America’s greatest female artists: Georgia O’Keeffe, Mary Stevenson Cassatt, and Hildreth Meière. Georgia O’Keeffe, considered to be the “Mother of American Modernism, was an American artist best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes.
Mary Stevenson Cassatt known for her paintings and prints of women’s social life and mother and child. She has been called “one of the three great ladies" of Impressionism.
Hildreth Meière was a mosaic artist and muralist who left her mark on many New York City structures.
All three women had to overcome gender barriers in their respective field to emerge as three of the greatest artists of their time.
