Gallery Talk by CeCe Sloan on Peggy Guggenheim this week!
Please join us for
An Evening Showcasing Women and Art
Thursday, May 27, 2010 11 p.m. OR 6 p.m.
A talk and discussion by lecturer CeCe Sloan on the remarkable philanthropist and patron of the arts Peggy Guggenheim.
On exhibit: notable works by painter/poet Michael (Corinne) West,
whose paintings Guggenheim admired.
Philanthropist/art collector Peggy Guggenheim and painter/poet Michael (Corinne) West were key figures in the Abstract Expressionist movement in New York City after World War II. Female artists frequently adopted male noms des brosses in order to be taken seriously in the male-dominated art world; only recently have the works of female artists of the period been revisited. Art Resource Group will present an exhibition of notable works by Michael West to coincide with the MOCA(LA) exhibit, Arshile Gorky: A Retrospective (June 6-Sept. 20). West's work was overshadowed by that of Gorky, her close friend; clearly West was more than Gorky's muse, for her paintings were admired by Guggenheim and other notables of the period. Local art aficionado CeCe Sloan will present a talk on the subject of Peggy Guggenheim, followed by a discussion and reception. A tax-deductible $20 donation will be collected at the door; all proceeds from the event will be donated to UNIFEM to help end poverty, violence and inequality for women in 135 countries.
