Opening Exhibition and Book Signing: December 1, 3-6 pm
Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce a new book and exhibition of gouache paintings; the book written by Kirsten Gillibrand, with art by Maira Kalman entitled Bold & Brave: Ten Heroes who won Women the Right to Vote, published by Alfred A. Knopf. Gillibrand tells the story of how women won the right to vote from a personal and historic perspective and Kalman responds visually with portraits of the women and real and imagined scenes from the struggle to achieve the women’s right to vote. The heroic figures include Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Alice Paul, Inez Milholland, Ida B. Wells, Mary Church Terrell, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth, Jovita Idar, and Lucy Burns.
Maira Kalman will be here to sign copies of the Bold & Brave, and as well as another recent publication written in collaboration with her son Alex Kalman of Sara Berman’s Closet, based on an exhibition held in 2017/18 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
