Painting Women: Works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art (BGFA) presents “Painting Women: Works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston” opening February 14, 2014.

The exhibition will feature a series of paintings portraying female artists as confident practitioners of their craft, as well as a survey of work by women artists including Mary Cassatt, Georgia O’Keeffe and Berthe Morisot. A portrait by French painter Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun, a predecessor and role model to the artists showcased, will introduce the series. The works will be arranged thematically from the 1870s, the era when fine arts training programs first became available to women, to the mid-20th century when women (like their male counterparts) adopted more abstract, modern styles. The exhibit also will include examples of successful artistic partnerships between men and women, such as the work of Philip and Lilian Hale.

The exhibit will be on view February 14, 2014 through October 23, 2014. Tickets are $16 for general admission; $13 for Nevada residents and seniors 65 and older; and $11 for students, teachers and military with valid ID. Children 12 and younger are free.
