WOMEN ARTISTS AND ATELIER 17   (January 17 through May 31, 2017)
Innovation and Abstraction: Women Artists and Atelier 17 is now on view at the Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, through May 31, 2017.
The curator, Dr. Christina Weyl, selected eight artists to feature from the more than ninety women who worked at the New York facility between 1940 and 1955. For each she selected intaglio prints indicative of their Atelier experience as well as an additional price in another medium: paintings for MINNA CITRON and ALICE TRUMBULL MASON, string construction for SUE FULLER, sculptures for WORDEN DAY and DOROTHY DEHNER, and woodcut and collage for ANNE RYAN.
