January 5, 2018 @ 11:00 am - February 18, 2018 @ 4:00 pm
A&H’s Maitland Art Center
The Women of the Research Studio: Past & Present exhibition honors the legacy of female artists visiting the A&H’s Maitland Art Center. This exhibit in the Maitland Art Center galleries features prints and paintings by “Bok Fellows” such as Mina Citron (1896–1991) and Jan Gelb (1906–78), along with new mixed-media artworks by 2017 Artists-in-Residence, Nikki Painter and Elisabeth Condon.
Previously known as The Research Studio, A&H’s Maitland Art Center was home to a number of significant artists from 1938-1956, who temporarily lived and worked in this artists’ colony. These artists were known as “Bok Fellows,” in homage to The Research Studio benefiting from the generous support of philanthropist Mary Curtis Bok. In 2013, the A&H implemented its new Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program. To this day, the program thrives with visiting artists residing in founder André Smith’s home and studio throughout the year.
