Making Magic: Frankenthaler on Paper
Thursday, January 16, 2020, 5–7:30pm
Arthur Ross Gallery, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia
Curator and author Ruth E. Fine will be giving a lecture on the occasion of the opening of Frankenthaler on Paper at the Arthur Ross Gallery, University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Fine will discuss Helen Frankenthaler’s print practice. During the 1960s and ’70s, several groundbreaking print workshops were established, reflecting a renewed interest on the part of artists and collectors in contemporary printmaking. Inspired by the process, Frankenthaler experimented endlessly, working with master printers across the country and abroad for more than three decades. The event is free to attend.
