The Bennett Collection: Paintings of Women by Women Wednesday, January 27
Steven Alan Bennett and Dr. Elaine Melotti Schmidt have spent years amassing an impressive collection dedicated exclusively to figurative realist paintings of women by women. The Collection’s aim – to elevate women painters (who have not received the same degree of acceptance as their male counterparts) and to ignite enthusiasm and dialogue about figurative realism, a style which, over the past half-century, has fallen out of favor.
The Collection includes work by historical trailblazing women painters such as Artemisia Gentileschi, Mary Cassatt, and Elisabetta Sirani alongside some of the most exciting women painters currently working: Julie Bell, Margaret Bowland, Aleah Chapin, Aneka Ingold, and dozens of others.
Join the Texas-based collectors as they discuss their passion for championing women artists. To see their full collection visit: www.thebennettartcollection.com and follow them on IG @bennett897 or FB @TheBennettArtCollection.
Garden Delights: Bringing the Outdoors Inside Wednesday, January 27
NYC&G (New York Cottages & Gardens) Editorial Director Kendell Cronstrom, Interior Designer Matthew Patrick Smyth, and Winter Show dealers Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz and Benoist Drut of Maison Gerard explore the pull of nature in artistic design and the world of interiors.
The United States has always been a nation of makers. From initial settlement through successive waves of immigration, craft has been crucial to America’s economy and its identity, appealing to deeply held ideas of individuality and self-sufficiency.
In his new book, historian and curator Glenn Adamson argues that crafted objects have played another, under-recognized role in our history, as symbols in the fight for social progress and as ethical guideposts, pointing firmly toward the future. Following his reading, Glenn will be joined by Ethan Lasser, curator at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, for a discussion of the book and its subject.
