About This Event

Artist Beth Lipman

Art critic Johanna Fateman called artist Beth Lipman’s current New York exhibition “a seductive, cinematic affair.” Murdock Society patrons who met Lipman when she participated in WAM’s 2017 glass exhibition Ritual and Desire will agree. Lipman works only in clear glass with some white. Laid Table by Lipman nearly stole the WAM show, with its opulence and room-encompassing scale. Lipman is now working on a commission for WAM’s Boeing Foyer lobby. Don’t miss her, as she mingles again with Murdock patrons shortly before the exciting artwork installation begins.
