Works by internationally acclaimed photorealist Audrey Flack of women neglected or demonized in history feature in a New York exhibition.
With a career that has spanned six decades, artist and sculptor Audrey Flack hardly needs an introduction. Today, even at the experienced age of 84, Flack continues to produce powerful works that frequently find themselves in renowned public and private collections.

This fall, visitors will have a unique chance to experience works by Flack at The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, New York. “Audrey Flack: Heroines” will feature a number of works in a variety of mediums that spotlight women who have been demonized and mistreated throughout history. Although the works shown were produced over the past four years, the subjects parallel Flack’s work in the 1970s, in which the artist centered her artistic lens on heroic feminist imagery.
The exhibition, which opened September 26, will be on view through January 3.
