Fierce Females: Women in Art

  • Tuesday, March 16th at 6:00 pm

Join DPL Adult Services and the New Hampshire Humanities Council to welcome Jane Oneail to present Fierce Females: Women in Art via zoom.  

Women have long been the subject of art, often depicted as nothing more than objects of desire. How do images of women change when women become the creators? This program examines the history of women in art in brief and then explores the lives, careers and works of several major women artists from the Renaissance to the twentieth century. Artemisia Gentileschi, Mary Cassatt, and Frida Kahlo are some of the artists discussed in this program. This program is free and open to all, register online at Hosted by the Durham Public Library and sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
