Dallas-Fort Worth | Curator-led Tour of ‘Women Painting Women’ at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

May 24 @ 10:00 am

Painting by Amy Sherald - a woman in a blue dress leans agains a yellow bicycle. She stands in front of a white picket fence with sunflowers growing around it.

Join Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Chief Curator Andrea Karnes for a special tour of Women Painting Women, a thematic exhibition featuring 46 female artists who choose women as subject matter in their works.

This presentation, international in scope, includes evocative portraits that span the late 1960s to the present. All place women—their bodies, gestures, and individuality—at the forefront, conceiving new ways to activate and elaborate on the portrayal of women.
