SOLD OUT

In this series of gallery talks, women artists give members their perspectives on selected works featured in As in Nature: Helen Frankenthaler Paintings and discuss how Frankenthaler has inspired them. Speaking about combinations of abstraction and figuration in her work, artist Natalie Frank also explores this duality in Frankenthaler's works—particularly Red Shift—through an examination of the application and materiality of paint. Frank is also deeply interested in the ways in which paint can connote gender and sexuality, as well as reference art historical style.

Space is limited; reservations required.
