Discover the innovative printmaking practice of renowned Modernist artist Helen Frankenthaler (American, 1928–2011) with scholar Ruth Fine, a former curator for the National Gallery of Art.
Frankenthaler was a leading voice in the development of the second generation of Abstract Expressionism in the U.S. While she is known for her work as a painter and experimentations with ceramics, textiles, and sculpture, she also made major contributions to the field of printmaking. In the 1960s, Frankenthaler began learning the age-old methodology with master printers and studios, ultimately taking risks within the traditional boundaries of the practice and expanding the medium in new and radical ways.
Deliberate Risks: Prints by Helen Frankenthaler, on view at SCAD MOA through July 11, 2021.
This event is open to the public.
