World-renowned artist and feminist trailblazer Audrey Flack is the subject of a new documentary that explores her life and art.
Watch the film “Queen of Hearts: Audrey Flack” through the Princeton Garden Theatre virtual cinema.
Then join the conversation about the film with Academy Award-winning director Deborah Shaffer and Audrey Flack herself at 4 p.m. Feb. 11 via Zoom.
Flack, an acclaimed painter, sculptor, and pioneer of photorealism, is the first photorealist painter whose work was purchased for the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Her art resides in major museums around the world.
Now in her eighties, she returns to her canvas for the first time in decades and shares her hard-fought struggles as a female artist and mother to find her rightful place in the art world.
