Selected date

Thursday September 28

Selected time

6:00 PM  –  7:00 PM

Please join us for a free program celebrating the ongoing exhibition, Distant Conversations: Ella Walker and Betty Woodman, on view now through October 22. Katarina Jerinic, Collections Curator at The Woodman Family Foundation, will offer deeper insight into how Betty Woodman’s time in Italy influenced her singular approach to ceramic sculpture, in concert with a presentation from the Currier’s Chief Curator Lorenzo Fusi highlighting the influence of Italian fresco on Ella Walker’s work. Their remarks will be followed by a dialogue between the two presenters and a Q+A. After the talk, we encourage you to explore the exhibition and enjoy refreshments from the Winter Garden café. As a special addition to the evening, there will be a rare opportunity to see a small number of Ella Walker’s works in reverse, illuminating her unique working process of incorporating drawings and text on the verso.
