Artists of the Woodstock Artists Association
Beginning as a getaway for artists, many superstars on the art scene summered in this Catskill paradise. Some came for a few seasons; others remained year round; some taught classes and trained many of the masters of the 20th century. Slide-illustrated lectures will discuss the history of this artistic colony founded in 1919 as well as related controversies and artistic innovations. Discussions will include the more famous artists such as Alexander Archipenko, Milton Avery, George Bellows, Richard Diebenkorn, John Flannagan, Mary Frank, Milton Glaser, Philip Guston, Robert Henri, Eva Hesse, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Doris Lee, Bradley Walker Tomlin, as well as lesser-known artists whose works are now receiving increasing attention.
