Juniper Art Gallery Book Club
2nd Thursday, January 9, 4:00 – 5:00 pm
For the month of January, we are reading: Ninth Street Women, by Mary Gabriel
Set amid the most turbulent social and political period of modern times, Ninth Street Women is the impassioned, wild, exhilarating and sometimes tragic, chronicle of five women who dared to enter the male-dominated world of twentieth-century abstract painting–not as muses but as artists. Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler changed American art and society, tearing up the prevailing social code and replacing it with a doctrine of liberation. In Ninth Street Women, acclaimed author Mary Gabriel tells a remarkable and inspiring story of the power of art and artists in shaping not just postwar America but the future.
