Hollis Taggart Galleries is pleased to share that gallery artist Audrey Flack will be receiving the 2017 Women’s Caucus for Art Lifetime Achievement Award, which honors the contribution of women to the arts and the profound effect they have on society. Flack will be presented with this prestigious award along with art historian Mary Schmidt Campbell, multimedia artist Martha Rosler, and artist, educator, and activist Charlene Teters.
The first WCA Lifetime Achievement Awards were given in 1979 in President Jimmy Carter’s Oval Office to Isabel Bishop, Selma Burke, Alice Neel, Louise Nevelson, and Georgia O’Keefe. The next year, Flack herself nominated Lee Krasner for the honor.
The ceremony will be held at 8pm on Saturday, February 18th at the New York Institute of Technology and is free and open to the public.
