Are you an art lover? Just a bit curious about art? Do you ever wonder what your life would have been if you'd followed that passion instead of going into the corporate world? Ann Moore, former Chairman and CEO of Time Inc, invites you to her new art gallery in Chelsea. Ann will share with us her experience in transitioning her career from the corporate world to the art world.
Art Advisor and Guest Curator Rebecca Michelman will walk us through the treasure hunt of this exhibit that spans relief, intaglio, lithography, and screen printmaking. Rebecca tracked down rarely seen work by seasoned artists from California to Paris. Visits to master printers uncovered prints from their personal collections as well as unseen works of their own. Contemporary living artists are juxtaposed with old masters including Goya, Rembrandt, Hopper, Picasso, and Warhol. Selected prints for sale in the show are from editions in the permanent collections of MOMA, the Whitney, and the Met.
