Please join us for the opening reception for Karen Schiff’s art exhibit, “Broken Letters (after Agnes).”

Agnes Martin began her lecture at Yale University with a deep breath … slowly, in and out. It was the mid-1970s, and Martin (1912–2004) was in the middle of a major resurgence in her decades-long career. “At last,” she declared, “we are in the midst of reality, responding with joy.” Another long silence. Her lectures were never, and always, about art.
