Member Gallery Book Club: Frida and Diego: Art, Love, Life by Catherine Reef
Join fellow Alliance members in the Main Gallery to explore literature – both fiction and non-fiction – revolving around art, artists, art history, and art appreciation.
Participate in thoughtful group discussions and expand your appreciation and knowledge of the world of art!
Nontraditional, controversial, rebellious, and politically volatile, the Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera are remembered for their provocative paintings as well as for their deep love for each other. Their marriage was one of the most tumultuous and infamous in history—filled with passion, pain, betrayal, revolution, and, above all, art that helped define the twentieth century.
Catherine Reef’s inspiring and insightful dual biography features numerous archival photos and full-color reproductions of both artists work.
The Member Gallery Book Club meets from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of every month. Club members must purchase their own copy of each book, but an active Alliance membership is all that’s required. To become a member, click here.
