Anne Goldthwaite as Printmaker
Sunday, March 11, 2018
Join Curator Margaret Lynne Ausfeld and Assistant Curator of Education Elisabeth Palmer for a gallery-based discussion about the graphic work of native Montgomerian painter and printmaker Anne Goldthwaite. The curators will be discussing Goldthwaite’s early training as a maker of fine art prints in the early twentieth century when women were just beginning to join the ranks of professional printmakers. Participants will take a closer look at impressions and subjects produced during her almost 50 year-long-career in Paris, Montgomery, and New York City.
The Peaceable Kingdom and Landscape

Member Only Event
|Artist Jacqueline Bishop featured in Natural Wonders: The Art of Jacqueline Bishop and Douglas Bourgeois will be sharing insight into her work, landscapes, and the politics behind her art.
Bishop’s paintings, drawings, and installations explore the long tradition of landscape painting and the environmental issues behind it. Her detailed works are close observations of the world she inhabits, exploring species extinction, climate politics, and eco-political injustice. In her works on paper Bishop uses natural materials drawn from the landscape to address environmental issues.
We hope you will stay for a reception in honor of the opening of the spring exhibitions afterward. This event is for members only. Not a member? Become one today!
