Art Talk: Sonia Delaunay, A Modern Language of Color

July 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us on Tuesday, July 16, 2024, 7-8:15 pm via Zoom for a lively discussion on avant-garde artist Sonia Delaunay!  Delaunay spent her life experimenting with the language of color and abstraction, and developed a varied practice, giving equal weight to both design and fine art.  While remaining faithful to abstract painting, she created innovative designs in typography and textile prints, crafted handmade garments and ready-to-wear fashion, and designed costumes for theater, ballet, and film. Delaunay also created tapestries and mosaics as well as cutting edge interior designs.  Born Sara Stern in a Ukrainian shtetl in 1885, she became a crucial presence in the artistic and intellectual Zeitgeist of 20th century Paris.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Pennington Public Library and the Hopewell Valley Arts Council.
