Broad Strokes, A New Pen and Brush Exhibit

The 122-year-old arts organization debuts new 15-artist group show aimed to incite deeper considerations and reconsiderations of modern art history.

Pen and Brush is pleased to present Broad Strokes, the second group art exhibition in their new state-of-the-art facility located in New York’s Flatiron District. Taking the name from the sometimes pejorative word for a tough woman, “Broad” also refers to the wide range of work and perspectives represented.

Broad Strokes is on view at Pen and Brush, 29 East 22nd Street, New York, NY 10010, from April 1st through June 5th, 2016. There is an opening reception on Friday, April 1st from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. and light refreshments and wine is served. The event is open to the public, but you are encouraged to RSVP by emailing rsvp@penandbrush.org.

A group show totaling 63 works by 15 different artists, Broad Strokes offers an earnest contemplation of modern art's rich history beyond the exclusionary lens of the accepted canon. As a result, Broad Strokes aims to incite and encourage deeper considerations and reconsiderations of the role modern art plays for contemporary women artists.

Among the featured artists is Josephine Barreiro, whose colorful and energetic paintings reflect her upbringing in Newark, New Jersey’s Ironbound neighborhood as the daughter of Spanish immigrants. Barreiro is inspired by her love of graffiti art and the iconic work of Spanish painters from Diego Velazquez to Pablo Picasso. Not only is Barreiro's work in the show, she is live painting during the Broad Strokes opening on April 1st.

All Pen and Brush events are open to the public. Please visit the events page for a full calendar of reading, events, discussions and more.

Math Encounters at MoMath: Rithmetic Revisited

How could there be something we don't know about arithmetic — didn't we learn it all in third grade? But here’s a problem whose solution we don’t know: What is the fastest way to multiply? And another: How many different numbers appear in a large multiplication table? Dartmouth mathematician Carl Pomerance reveals the hidden mysteries of multiplication and addition in this surprising reexamination of grade-school math.

Math Encounters is MoMath’s popular free public presentation series celebrating the spectacular world of mathematics, produced with support from the Simons Foundation. For more information, call the National Museum of Mathematics at (212) 542-0566 or e-mail mathencounters@momath.org.
