ARTEMISIA by Lauren Gunderson
February 1 - 24, 2024 — FINAL WEEKEND
Gunderson’s newest work, Artemisia is “A visceral, sexy, full force true story of a radical feminist artist that shook up Italian Baroque painting.”
So why don’t we know her name? Artemisia Gentileschi was the most celebrated female painter of the 17th century, yet her name was all but lost for centuries. Attacked at just seventeen, publicly shamed and tortured to prove her truth, Gentileschi continues to fight for her art and the freedom to make it on her own terms.
Gunderson’s Artemisia is a work of humor and warmth which celebrates the courage, artistry, and humanity
of a woman who attacked the glass ceiling with every brush stroke.
