Women have long been the subject of art, often depicted as nothing more than objects of desire. How do images of women change when women become the creators? Join us (virtually) on Thursday, July 30th at 6pm when Jane Oneail answers this question by examining the history of women in art in brief. We will also be exploring the lives, careers, and works of several major women artists from the Renaissance to the twentieth century. Artemisia Gentileschi, Mary Cassatt, and Frida Kahlo are just some of the artists discussed in this program.

Jane Oneail is an independent scholar and holds a master’s in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Art in Education from Harvard University. Jane is a New Hampshire native and has worked at some of the state’s most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane has also taught at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at the NH Institute of Art.

This online program is made possible through a generous grant from New Hampshire Humanities.
