Art at Noon: The Determined Life of Mary Hiester Reid
Monday, October 4th, 12:00 to 1:00 PM
Zoom address will be emailed upon registration

In this special Art at Noon, celebrate the 100th anniversary of the death of Mary Hiester Reid and author Molly Peacock's brand new publication on the esteemed artist.

In Flower Diary: Mary Hiester Reid Paints, Travels, Marries & Opens a Door, Peacock looks at the balancing act of female creativity and domesticity in the life of Mary Hiester Reid, a painter who produced over 300 stunning, emotive floral still lifes and landscapes. Born in the U.S. in 1854 and trained by Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Mary trailblazed a life where she fought for her place as a professional artist without having to live as a tragic heroine.
