Ninth Street Women Author Mary Gabriel In Conversation with Helen A. Harrison

Pollock-Krasner Study Center presents a talk with Mary Gabriel, author of Ninth Street Women, in conversation with Helen A. Harrison at Canio's Books on Saturday, November 17, 2018, at 4 p.m.  

In her new book, "Ninth Street Women," Mary Gabriel tells the stories of five female painters--Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell, and Grace Hartigan--who challenged the male-dominated ethos of the New York art world in the 1950s. The author skillfully interweaves their personal and professional histories and sets them in the era's broader social and political context. Some of her extensive research was done at the Pollock-Krasner Study Center.

Canio's Books is located at 290 Main St, Sag Harbor, NY 11963. www.stonybrook.edu/pkhouse
