Fluid Expressions: The Prints of Helen Frankenthaler

Wednesday, March 22, 2017, 6 p.m.

Helen Frankenthaler’s adaptation of her “soak-stain” aesthetic for the graphic medium offers a stunning look at how printmaking can exude a sense of spontaneity and immediacy. From splattered pigments to translucent layers of ink, the radiant prints brought together here pulse with creative energy. Join Curatorial Assistant Michaela Haffner and collector Jordan D. Schnitzer as they take a closer look at the vibrant works of this inventive printmaker.

Please reply by March 17 to kathleen.butz@cartermuseum.org or 817.989.5060.

Marfa, Texas
April 25–April 28, 2017

The name itself evokes images that seem far away from the modern world, a laid-back place to get away from the busy life, a place with none of the things that complicate life. There is an endless expanse of blue sky, stunning views into the Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico and the Chinati mountains of Texas, and the remarkable stucco and white washed architecture of the town. Marfa is also the home of the internationally known contemporary art museum founded by minimalist artist Donald Judd, the Chinati Foundation. If you want to experience this extraordinary place, join us for a four day, three night trip that includes a visit to Fort Davis, star party at McDonald Observatory, Marfa Prada, art galleries and studios, sophisticated restaurants, and the mysterious Marfa Lights.

All inclusive tour price is $1095 per person. (Single supplement is $300.) This fee includes accommodations based on double occupancy, breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily; transportation by luxury motor coach; gratuities for guides and bus drivers; all sightseeing and admission charges; service charges, and taxes.

For reservations please contact Mary Lynn Sloane at 817.989.5063 or email marylynn.sloane@cartermuseum.org. This tour is not ADA accessible.
