Meditative Motions: Chellis Baird in Conversation with Heather Zises
Join Women of Culture, a community designed to connect, inspire and empower women through meaningful engagement with the arts, and spend an afternoon learning about and celebrating female artists past and present while exploring one of NYC’s hidden art gems: the Louise Nevelson Chapel at Saint Peter’s Church next Saturday January 11th from 2-4pm.
The chapel serves as the inspiration for and backdrop to Meditative Motions, an exhibit by Contemporary Artist Chellis Stoddard Baird, whose work blurs the intersection of painting, sculpture and textiles. The exhibit features a series of sculptural paintings, through which Baird pays respect to this beautiful structure that is the only remaining intact environment created by Nevelson, one of the 20th century’s premier abstract expressionist sculptors.
After an exclusive walk-through of the exhibition with the artist, the afternoon includes an artist talk with Baird in conversation with Heather Zises, curator and editor of the multi-award winning book 50 Contemporary Women Artists. It will be a unique opportunity to learn about the artistic dialogue between two women exploring similar themes but working in different centuries.
Light bites & wine courtesy of LOVE Wines will be served. All genders welcome.
