The second in a series of three lectures on women artists will be held May 27 at the Old Grammar School, 3223 Main St.
Tess Wright will present “Women in Art Series II,” figurative painter Alice Neel. A talk on the Feminist Art Movement in Southern California from the late 1960s through the early 1980s is set for June 24.
The first talk was on sculptor Louise Nevelson.
The multi-media lectures explore in depth the societal restrictions, cultural impediments and the male-dominated art world that created major challenges for women artists in their attempts to secure their rightful place in the history of art.
Admission is $15 per lecture, or $12 Allied Arts Association members.
All lectures are scheduled to run from 7 to 9:30 p.m. The series is sponsored by Allied Arts and The Painted Lily Gallery.
