Art Lovers Book Club / de Kooning: An American Master by Mark Stevens @ Art Lovers Book Club / de Kooning: An American Master by Mark Stevens
Nov 21 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Willem de Kooning is one of the most important artists of the twentieth century, a true “painter’s painter” whose protean work continues to inspire many artists. In the thirties and forties, along with Arshile Gorky and Jackson Pollock, he became a key figure in the revolutionary American movement of abstract expressionism. Of all the painters in that group, he worked the longest and was the most prolific, creating powerful, startling images well into the 1980s. This is an authoritative and brilliant exploration of the art, life, and world of an American master.

Plan to be a part of the experience at our Artists Market!

The Artists Market, like other Museum event supports the mission of CRMA. These happenings continue to flourish under the creative inspiration and hard work of volunteers and staff and continues to educate and spread knowledge though these opportunities.

This year will mark the 6th year of our Artists Market! Within this regionally focused market there is a realm of passion, genuine talent and possibility to own a piece of art for all involved. Our market has some very good artists whose work has not been exposed to the art market circuit as well as established artists. Visit us and see what all of your favorite artists have been up to and discover some new talent while you’re there! There is plenty of time to have a great dialog with the artist while viewing works of art.
