Insights on Women in Art

Three opportunities to access the insights and observations of women who have made important contributions

The coming week will offer three opportunities to access the insights and observations of women who have made important contributions to the making and presentation of contemporary art over the past several decades.

“Women Artists: Reshaping the Conversation,” a series of panel discussions organized by Toni Ross last summer at the LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton, will return to that venue on Saturday at 11 a.m. for the first of three programs.

Saturday’s speakers are Terrie Sultan, director of the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill; Dorothea Rockburne, known for her influential installations, shaped canvases, and recent watercolor works; Carrie Moyer, an artist and professor whose work has been exhibited widely, and Carla Chammas, a co-founder of the influential CRG Gallery in New York City.

On Sunday at 3 p.m. at Guild Hall, the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center will present “Lee Krasner: The Long View,” a free lecture and film screening by Barbara Rose. A contributing editor at Art in America, Artforum, and Vogue, Ms. Rose has twice won the College Art Association’s award for distinguished art criticism.

She organized Krasner’s 1983-84 traveling retrospective and will present her 1978 documentary on the artist and share her insights into Krasner’s life and career.

Audrey Flack, a central figure in the art world since coming of age in the 1950s among the Abstract Expressionists, will be interviewed at the Art Barge on Napeague by Esperanza Leon, that venue’s administrative coordinator, on Wednesday at 6 p.m. 

A pioneer of photorealism in the late 1960s, Ms. Flack, who has a studio in East Hampton, later turned to neo-classical sculpture, creating figures of women inspired by Greco-Roman sculpture. 

The LongHouse panel discussion is free, but reservations are required at women.artists.rsvp@gmail.com or by phone at 212-271-4283. Tickets to the Audrey Flack talk are $20, $18 for friends.
