Floor 3

During the postwar heyday of Abstract Expressionism, only a handful of women artists received art-world attention. This gallery session will explore the relationship between "making your mark" and mark making. Does a gestural paint stroke always express an emotion? We’ll look at the variety of painterly techniques used by Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, and Joan Mitchell and consider their artistic legacies.

This session is led by Kerry Downey.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.

This event is part of Gallery Sessions.
