Join us for an exclusive event with Warner Friedman, a prominent artist in the Berkshires for over fifty years. After viewing the short documentary Warner Friedman: A Postmodern Journey (2023, directed by Diane Crespo), the artist and the filmmaker join in a conversation and Q&A session.

Renowned as a contemporary landscape painter, Friedman is celebrated for his vibrant scenes framed by fences, gates, windows, and doors. Drawing from his early career in engineering, Friedman transitioned to creating abstract works of art. In the 1960s, he seamlessly integrated these abstract elements and geometric forms into expansive realist paintings, utilizing irregularly shaped canvases and employing models and carefully calibrated photographs for precision.
