Atelier 17: Women Printmakers at Midcentury 
Wednesday, August 3, 12:00 PM ET
Free with registration

Atelier 17 was an avant-garde printmaking studio in New York City between 1940 and 1955 that served as a space where women artists like Anne Ryan, Miriam Shapiro, and Dorot​hy Dehner were able to gain exposure and create ground-breaking work in modernist styles of abstraction, surrealism, and expressionism.  Dr. Brittany Webb, the Evelyn and Will Kaplan Curator of Twentieth Century Art and the John Rhoden Collection, will be in conversation with Christina Weyl, author of The Women of Atelier 17: Modernist Printmaking in Midcentury New York (Yale University Press, 2019), about the importance of this studio as well as the contributions of the women artists who created there.
