January 31-February 10. Celebrating its 17th season, MODfest 2019 is Vassar College’s annual exploration of the arts of the 20th and 21st centuries.

February 1 - April 14: FREEHAND

Freehand: Drawings by Inez Nathaniel Walker#1: Woman in Patterned Dress w/ Earings on Prison Mimeo (**SOLD**)

February 1 – April 14, 2019

Inez Nathaniel Walker (1907–1990) made her first drawings while she was serving a sentence for killing a man who had abused her. While in prison she began creating remarkable portraits of her fellow inmates whom she called “bad girls.” Her richly patterned works combine meticulous detail and playful simplicity, forming expressive depictions of her subjects’ personalities and physical attributes. Freehand gathers together works by Walker from the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center’s permanent collection, donated by Pat O’Brien Parsons ’51, along with a number of key loans from private and public collections to present the artist’s first one-person museum exhibition.
