Art Talk: Alice Neel
November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Alice Neel: Portraits, Politics & Power
Wednesday, November 8, 2023, 7:00-8:15 pm via Zoom
Presenter: Janet Mandel, Arts Educator
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. Come and hear about her unconventional life and her remarkable career, and see many examples of her unique and sometimes shocking paintings.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Pennington Public Library and the Hopewell Valley Arts Council.
