The Through the Flower Art Space will host its inaugural "First Flower Friday” event on Friday, August 23rd: Judy Chicago in conversation with acclaimed arts journalist, Jori Finkel, on women pioneers of abstract painting, including Hilma af Klint, Georgia O’Keeffe and Agnes Pelton.
Their topic for the night is inspired by an interview in Finkel's new book It Speaks to Me, in which Chicago discusses a painting by Pelton as an example of early abstraction that she finds powerful and empowering.
Space is limited so reservations are required. Admission is $5. This event is sold out.
