Feature Artist Lecture with Martha Posner
Brutal Beauty is a mid career retrospective of the artist, Martha Posner. The artist will cover her studio practice, influences, and the importance of mythology to the narratives she creates. Her work is in service to a better understanding of the trauma women experience, providing perspective to those unable to speak on their own.
Posner is a sculptor living on a farm in Martins Creek, Pennsylvania. She takes much of her inspiration from the 250 acres of surrounding forest, fairy tales and mythology, and her many barnyard creatures. She is a Mary H. Dana Fellow, and an Experimental Printmaking Workshop Fellow. Some of her collectors and exhibitions include: The Allentown Art Museum, The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Butler Museum of Art, Lehigh University, The George Gund Foundation and The Spoletto Festival. Publications and reviews of her work can be found in The New York Times, Surface Design, Art Forum, ArtNews and Sculpture Magazine. She is represented by Accola Griefen in New York City.
