ARTEMISIA: Light and Shadow

A newly conceived one-woman show on the life and art of 17th-century painter Artemisia Gentileschi.

Tuesday, May 15 @ 7:30pm

Sunday, May 20 @ 4pm

Ticket Prices: $40 for General Admission, $20 for Under 25 & Over 65

A life more dramatic than an Italian opera: trained in art by her father, raped as a teenager, she survived a sensational trial to become an internationally renowned painter – and the secret lover of a Florentine nobleman.
