Women Artists at Work: A Conversation with Cig Harvey and Katherine Bradford

August 26, 2021 @ 5:30 pm 6:30 pm EDT

Katherine Bradford & Cig Harvey for Farnsworth Art Museum - Rockland, ME

Join us on Thursday, August 26, on Zoom for a lively conversation with two of our 2021 Women of Vision: artists Cig Harvey and Katherine Bradford. The program will be moderated by independent curator and former CMCA Director Suzette McAvoy.

An artist whose practice seeks to find the magic in everyday life, Harvey’s work has been reviewed and featured in the New York Times, BBC, Vogue, the Wall Street Journal, the Independent, and New York Magazine. She is the author of three sold-out books, and her work is in the collections of major American museums, including the Farnsworth Art Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

Katherine Bradford began painting while living in Maine in the 1970s. Though she moved to New York City in the 1980s, she continues to return each summer to her home on the coast of Maine. She was a founding member of the Union of Maine Visual Artists, and her perspective and  teaching are avidly sought. She has been a resident faculty member at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and a senior critic at the Yale School of Art, and recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Joan Mitchell Foundation Award, a Pollock Krasner Grant, and two awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Bradford has had solo shows in New York, London, Paris, and Berlin, and her upcoming shows include ones in Milan, Belgium, New York, Tokyo, and Harvard’s Carpenter Center. 

This program is free, but registration is required.
