Women’s Work explores the use of traditional domestic handcrafts by contemporary women artists. More than 125 works spanning 300 years are displayed in both the Lyndhurst mansion and the exhibition gallery. Historic precedents are placed side-by-side with cutting-edge contemporary works. Enjoy a private viewing of the mansion exhibition during the cocktail reception and viewing in the exhibition gallery during the buffet dinner.
The exhibition includes such historic creators as Martha Washington and Dolley Madison and noted contemporary artists Judy Chicago, Louise Bourgeois, Faith Ringgold, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith, Kara Walker, Jenny Holzer, Sheila Hicks, Maira Kalman, Deborah Kass, Yoko Ono, and more. The exhibition was recently profiled with a full-page story in The New York Times.
This is an opportunity to experience this new exhibition at your own pace through private viewing.
The cocktail reception will be held outdoors, and the buffet dinner will be held in an outdoor tent with ventilation.
