Hallie Ringle, Hugh Kaul Curator of Contemporary Art, shares her research on lesser-known abstract artist Mavis Pusey. While addressing Mavis’s unique geometric abstraction in relation to her contemporaries, this talk traces the artist’s development from her childhood in Jamaica to time spent in New York, London, Paris, and Orange, Virginia.
Art and Conversation is for people who want to learn more about art in an informal and interactive setting. These programs, with the exception of May and July, are held on the first Thursday of each month January through October at 10:30 a.m. Coffee and light refreshments are available one half-hour prior in the Main Lobby. Lectures are led by curators or guest lecturers, and attendees are encouraged to ask questions, share thoughts and ideas, and actively participate in the learning process.
