Art Talk: Alice Neel, Portraits, Politics & Power
November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Although mostly unheralded, Alice Neel was one of the great American painters of the Twentieth Century, and a pioneer among women artists. A painter of people, landscape, and still life, Neel was never fashionable or in step with avant-garde movements. When abstract expressionism and pop art were all the rage, she painted in a style and with an approach distinctively her own. Join this live presentation, “Alice Neel: Portraits, Politics & Power” by Janet Mandel, Arts Educator via Zoom on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, 7:00-8:15 pm. Hear about Neel’s unconventional life and her remarkable career, and see many examples of her unique and sometimes shocking paintings.
