Contemporaries Lunchtime Lecture: Babs Reingold

The talented Babs Reingold, who lives in St. Petersburg, will introduce her work and explore her influences. She has produced paintings, drawings, sculpture, and room-sized installations. They are marked by both introspection and a social conscience and examine stereotypes of female beauty, aging, poverty, and more. She was represented in the recent exhibition Marks Made: Prints by American Women Artists from the 1960s to the Present.

Ms. Reingold is also the special guest for “Conversations with the Designers” on Sunday, April 10, from noon-2 pm, as part of Art in Bloom 2016. She will be on hand to discuss two “Hair Doodles” from her series Fallout: Beauty Lost and Found. She will be joined by floral designer Gretchen Ward Warren, who will answer questions about her Ikebana arrangement in response to Ms. Reingold’s drawings.

Cost (includes lunch and lecture):
$10 for members of The Contemporaries
$15 for non-members of The Contemporaries (does not include entrance to Museum galleries)
