Late Life and the Creative Imagination of Margaret Brassler Kane

Margaret Brassler KaneLate Life and the Creative Imagination of Margaret Brassler Kane

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009 at 7:30 PM in the Library

Creativity flourishes with age, and artistic talent does not end with physical decline. In many cases, artists in their later years are creating the best work of their lives.

Hear Kathleen Motes Bennewitz, Curator and Director of Exhibition and Programs for the Bush-Holley Historic Site, discuss Greenwich resident Margaret Kane’s longevity and creative pursuits, which have been well-documented in her personal papers and demonstrated by the artist herself, who actively worked into her 90s in her Cos Cob studio.

This lecture is based on the exhibit, Carved with Rasps and Chisels: The Sculpture of Margaret Brassler Kane (1909-2006), which is on view through March 15, 2009, at the Bush-Holley Historic Site.

We invite you to attend this free event, made possible by contributions from the members of the Perrot Memorial Library. We appreciate their support.
