Finding Her Way: American Women Artists 1840-1940 with Art Historian Rena TobeyWednesday Mar/08/2023
Finding Her Way: American Women Artists 1840-1940 is a library collaboration celebrating Women’s History Month. Art Historian Rena Tobey will take us on a journey of 100 years of American women artists, the struggles they faced, and their triumphs.
The American experiment has allowed for many forms of societal rule-breaking, but historically, women have been bound by tradition. Women artists often found themselves in gender-busting struggles to be taken seriously as professionals, while juggling the demands of their domestic lives. In this talk, we take a close look at their artwork that not only tells the eye-opening, funny, and even sexy stories of historical American women, but also are surprisingly relevant today.
Most of these artists have fallen into obscurity with their death, no matter their success while living. Together we will resuscitate and celebrate the art careers of historical women working over a 100-year period.
The Zoom link will be sent on the day of the presentation.
This program is a collaboration between Warner Library, Putnam Valley Library, Staatsburg Library, Clinton Community Library, and Stone Ridge Public Library.
