The Art Barge’s "Artists Speak" Summer Series To Welcome Audrey Flack

Olivia Rutigliano

Macarena Esperanza by Audrey Flack.

The third talk in The Art Barge's "Artists Speak" summer series will be led by artist Audrey Flack on Wednesday, August 15 at 6 p.m.

Flack first spoke at the Victor D'Amico Institute of Art in 1986 in the first summer talk series organized by Howard Kanovitz. Recognized for her excellence in the field of Photo-Realism, she was the first of the kind to have a piece in the Museum of Modern Art.

With degrees from Cooper Union and Yale University, she started her career in Abstract Expressionism. After studying at the Art League in the 50s briefly, she became a New Realist, until evolving in to her current genre in the 60s and 70s.

In the 80s, she made a very deliberate move from painting to sculpting. Largely inspired by religion and mythology, her sculptures depict heroic women and goddess figures.

"The 'Artists Speak' series has endeavored always to be captivating and informative, and to re-invite past speakers and learn about their evolution is a boon to both the organization and our audience," reflected Christopher Kohan, President of the Art Barge. "We are presented with that opportunity in Audrey Flack who was a guest in 1986 and returns as part of what has been a provocative roster of artists this season."

In her conversation with Esperanza Leon, The Art Barge Administrative Coordinator, she will discuss her inspiration by the Renaissance and Baroque ages and the humanist representation of the female figure.

"I am honored to have this opportunity to talk with Audrey Flack about her role as a pioneer and innovator," Leon noted. "She is an artist who has defied expectations and norms while remaining intensely connected with the history of art, particularly the Renaissance and Baroque periods. This and the humanist representation of women throughout her work will guide our conversation."

Tickets are $20 or $18 for members.

The Art Barge is located at 110 Napeague Meadow Road in Amagansett. For tickets, and more information, call 631-267-3172 or visit theartbarge.org.
