The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) will present a free talk by artist Natalie Frank and curator Elissa Watters on Thursday, January 20, at 7 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live. Register at brattleboromuseum.org.
Frank and Watters will discuss the BMAC exhibit “Natalie Frank: Painting with Paper,” which presents selections from a body of work that Frank produced with a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant in 2019–20. Frank worked with wet pigmented cotton and linen paper pulp to create portraits of imagined female figures, each accompanied by an animal. The exhibit is on view at BMAC through February 13.
Frank is a multimedia artist whose work explores contemporary discourse on feminism, sexuality, and violence. She has exhibited widely, and her work is in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. She has illustrated five books of fairy tales, and she served as artistic director for Ballet Austin’s commissioned work “Grimm Tales,” which won seven Critics Table Awards.
