Great Women Artists of the Early 20th Century

On the evening of Monday March 30th starting at 7pm, the Library will present a program : “Great Women Artists of the Early 20th Century.”

This presentation will focus on three of America’s greatest female artists: Georgia O’Keeffe, Mary Stevenson Cassatt, and Hildreth Meière.

Georgia O’Keeffe, considered to be the “Mother of American Modernism”, was an American artist best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes.

Mary Stevenson Cassatt known for her paintings and prints of women’s social life and mother and child, has been called “one of the three great ladies" of Impressionism.

Hildreth Meière was a mosaic artist and muralist who left her mark on many New York City structures

All three women had to overcome gender barriers in their respective field to emerge as three of the greatest artists of their time.

The presenter is Mario Medici, a retired information technology executive with 50 years of business experience, 30 of which were with the airline industry. Having traveled the world extensively, and with a love for amateur photography, Mario also lectures on the sights and attractions of New York and New Jersey with a concentration on their historical, architectural, and artistic aspects. Mario currently lectures at Bergen Community College's Institute for Learning in Retirement (ILR); clients include schools, community organizations, and libraries. Mario is also a licensed New York City Sightseeing Guide and holds an MBA in Finance.
