Modernism To Be Discussed At Janet Lehr Fine Arts

Aug 10, 2017 3:51 PM

A discussion of modernism in art will take place at Janet Lehr Fine Arts, a longtime East Hampton gallery specializing in contemporary art, on Sunday, August 20.

The gallery will host panelists David Cohen, the editor and publisher of Artcritical, an online magazine of art and ideas, and Janet Lehr, a seasoned art dealer and advocate for photography as a fine art. Joan Marter, a professor of art history and editor of Women’s Art Journal, will moderate the discussion.

Panelists will be covering the all aspects of modernism seen through two poles—photography and painting—in New York City between 1910 and the 1950s. The speakers will consider Janet Lehr Fine Art’s current exhibition, “Modernism 2017,” which introduces the concept that artist Alvin Langdon Coburn’s 1910 photographs of Pittsburgh steel mills are the first representations of American modernism.

Artists in the exhibition, which will run through Wednesday, August 23, include Albert Pinkham Ryder, Man Ray, Perle Fine and Willem de Kooning.

The discussion will take place at noon at Janet Lehr Fine Arts, located in the Starbucks passage on Park Place. Brunch will be included. Reservations are recommended. Call 631-324-3303.
