This Thursday, March 15, Curator Jeffrey Wechsler will be on hand to deliver “Sylvia Wald: Seven Generations,” a gallery talk that takes a personal look at this prolific artist’s life and work, which is currently on display in the gallery.

Wald’s oeuvre ranges from Depression-era social realism to printmaking, sculpture and many imaginative worlds in between. Wechsler’s talk begins at 7 p.m. in the gallery, which is located in the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

On Tuesday, April 10, art expert Maya Jiménez, Ph.D., CUNY, MoMA, will deliver “Transatlantic Encounters and Modern Latin American Art” at 7 p.m. in the gallery.
