Phyllis Braff, independent curator
“The Pioneering Era of Mary Abbott and Women Artists of Her Generation on Long Island”
Phyllis’ talk will focus on how Mary Abbott found and developed her abstract expressionist strengths during the 1950s, along with a view of other women artists who had studios on Eastern Long Island in the ‘50s. The discussion brings attention to their contributions as well their working ambience, with many insights based on personal observation.
An art critic and art historian, Phyllis Braff is a former art columnist for The New York Times and The East Hampton Star. She was a New York State art curator and museum administrator/director from 1968 to 2001 and has focused on Long Island artists for many years. Her essay on Mary Abbott appears in the exhibition catalog.
