The Parrish Art Museum is currently presenting an exhibition that takes an in depth look at the life and work of the American abstract-expressionist artist, Helen Frankenthaler. In "Abstract Climates: Helen Frankenthaler in Provincetown,” not only is her work on display, but in the coming weeks, artists like Clifford Ross will be leading discussions and presentations about the late artist that will explore her work and life.

Throughout her career and legacy, Frankenthaler's work has been exhibited in museums like the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Thirty of her paintings exploring the relationship between abstraction and landscapes are on view at the Parrish.

The topics will cover her time in East Hampton as well as Provincetown, Massachusetts, with her former husband, Robert Motherwell. All programs are open to the public are are free with museum admission.

The presentations kick off with a talk on Thursday, August 22, at noon, titled "Brain Food: By The Sea, By The Sea, 1950s," by Alicia Longwell, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, who will be discussing Frankenthaler's summers in East Hampton and in Provincetown with Motherwell.
