Frida Kahlo • Wednesday, April 28, 2021
Harford Artists' Association Presents: Living Performance Series
Wednesday, April 28, 2021
Social Distancing and Masks required.
Colleen Webster delivers her one woman show as Frida Kahlo, early 20th century Mexican artist often claimed by the Surrealists as one of their own. Kahlo’s life from girlhood promise and tragedy, through her tempestuous marriage to painter Diego Rivera, her political activism and relationship with Leon Trotsky and many other lovers is highlighted by a projected visual display of both Kahlo’s paintings and photos of the artist herself.
Georgia O’Keeffe • Wednesday, May 12
A projected show of paintings and photographs helps audiences see the world of this powerful woman who lived into her 100th year. Colleen Webster portrays the long life of twentieth century artist Georgia O’Keeffe, often hailed as the first truly American painter. Perhaps known best for her large depictions of flowers, O’Keeffe’s career spanned many decades, covered many subjects, and was tightly woven into the photography of her husband Alfred Stieglitz, an icon in the art world in his own right.
Dorothy Parker • Wednesday, May 26
Dorothy Rothschild Parker roared into the 1920s from a topsy-turvy childhood that left her orphaned in New York City as a young single adult. From that spot she worked her way into writing for Vanity Fair and Vogue, sipping lunch cocktails as a prime star of the Algonquin Round Table, simultaneously keeping both men and her dogs at her feet. Colleen Webster reads from Parker’s poems, examines her role in progressive politics and even her leap across the country to Hollywood where she penned many successful screenplays.
Artists are portrayed by Colleen Webster, a living history performer. In addition to her academic career in literature as a Professor of English at Harford Community College, Colleen earned a Master Naturalist Certificate from Harford County Parks and a certificate in Environmental Studies from Johns Hopkins University. She is a field trip leader for the Maryland Ornithological Society, Harford Chapter and the Chesapeake Audubon Society.
