Ridgefield, CT | Curator-led Exhibition Tour of 52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum

Program Page | Exhibition Tour

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum Chief Curator Amy Smith-Stewart provided our group with an in-depth and comprehensive tour of 52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone. The exhibition celebrates the 51st anniversary of the historic exhibition Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists, curated by Lucy R. Lippard and presented at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in 1971. 52 Artists showcased work by many of the artists included in the original 1971 exhibition, alongside a new roster of 26 female-identifying or nonbinary emerging artists, tracking the evolution of feminist art practices over the past five decades. 52 Artists encompassed the entirety of the Museum (approx. 8,000 sq. ft)—the first exhibition to do so in The Aldrich’s new building which was inaugurated in 2004.

ArtTable Goes to Baltimore!

Program Page | Day Trip

June 2022 was a month for travel with ArtTable, as a handful of members and friends came together to explore the art scene of Charm City, aka Baltimore, Maryland. Our day began with a visit to the American Visionary Art Museum, where we were led on a tour by the museum’s amazing founder, Rebecca Hoffberger, who led us through her last exhibition before her retirement at the end of the year. Next we visited the private collection of local CPA Keith Eric Timmons, which boasts works by Sanford Biggers, Amy Sherald, Joyce Pommery Schwartz, and more. After stopping for a lovely lunch at Gertrude’s Chesapeake Kitchen, we enjoyed some free time at the Baltimore Museum of Art, in particular to view the long-awaited Joan Mitchell retrospective. Our final stop of the day was to Goya Contemporary Gallery, where Executive Director and Partner Amy Raehse give us an insider’s look at the work of Louise Fishman, as well as a trip through the gallery’s flat files.

“Such a fun day, surrounded by inspiring women! I’m so glad this was organized, I don’t think I would have made it out there if it wasn’t for ArtTable organizing this trip for us. Thank you for a beautiful day.”

At this virtual curatorial perspective program, attendees enjoyed an in-depth look at the curatorial process that went into the exhibition Cartier and Islamic Art: In Search of Modernity, currently on view at the Dallas Museum of Art. Senior Curator of Decorative Arts & Design Sarah Schleuning guided the group through the visually stunning exhibition, which traces Islamic art’s influence on the objects created by Louis Cartier and the designers of the great French jewelry Maison from the early 20th century to today. Co-organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Museé des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, in partnership with the Maison Cartier, Cartier and Islamic Art presents over 400 objects from major international collections, including the Department of Islamic Arts at the Louvre Museum and the Keir Collection of Islamic Art on loan to the Dallas Museum of Art.

Thank you so much for offering this program! Sarah Schleuning’s presentation was terrific, her insight and research on the subject was inspiring. I look forward to participating in other ArtTable programs in the near future!
