POTLUCK 11:30 AM – 1 PM / BOOKEY FAMILY COURTYARD

Print Club members only

LECTURE 1 – 2:30 PM / LEVITT AUDITORIUM

Free and open to the public

Print Club is pleased to host a public lecture by curator Elizabeth G. Seaton (Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, Kansas State University).

While art historians sometimes shy away from discussing female artists’ status as wives or mothers, so as not to eclipse their artistic achievements, such information can be useful for an understanding of women’s art. Seaton will consider how female artists active in the mid-twentieth century used printmaking to negotiate family commitments and how family roles often shaped the appearance of their printed art.

The lecture is open to the public. Prior to the lecture, Print Club members are invited to a members-only potluck in the Art Center courtyard. Mimosas will be provided for Print Club members, and they are encouraged to bring a dish to share.

RESERVE YOUR SEAT NOW.

Register online by June 12.
