Authors, Artists and More at Katonah Museum of Art

Lee and Me
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24
6:00 – 8:00 PM
 
Join writer Ruth Appelhof as she talks about her relationship with American Abstract Expressionist artist Lee Krasner – the subject of Lee and Me, Appelhof's recent personal memoir inspired by the 1974 summer she spent with with Krasner in East Hampton, Long Island.
 
Appelhof re-examines Krasner's contributions through the lens of first-hand material based on interviews with Krasner and her friends, fellow artists, gallerists and curators. The recollections offer a lens into the artist's personal life as well as into her contributions through the groundbreaking work she produced over the course of more than six decades. 
 
$20 members, $25 non-members, $15 students. Includes reception.

Artist in Conversation
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27
3:00 – 5:00 PM
Artist Rotem Reshef, Christopher Rothko, Stephen Maine and KMA Associate Curator Michele Wije engage in a conversation about Reshef’s artistic approach and the influence artist Helen Frankenthaler and the Abstract Expressionist movement had on her work. Her site-specific installation ARCADIA was inspired by the natural surroundings of the Museum – evident in her use of organic materials to imprint large scrolls of canvas. Reshef's practice is characterized by a 'control and release' technique in which she pours diluted paint on a horizontal canvas, tilting and imprinting on it to create layered gestural compositions.
 
$20 members, $25 non-members, $15 students. Includes reception.

NATIONAL ART DAY
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25
Art as creative expression evokes a myriad of responses. It shows the breadth of human creative skill and imagination. There is no history or culture without art. That’s why National Art Day on October 25 is important. Also known as International Artist’s Day, it celebrates all forms of art — painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, music and more. It is a celebration of the passion and creativity in all artists.
 
Help celebrate National Art Day by visiting the Museum and exploring the exhibitions currently on view. Then, inspired by the works on view, create your own artistic expression in the Learning Center.
