Artemisia: Light and Shadow

ARTEK presents a one-woman multi-media show on the life of 17th-century painter and feminist heroine Artemisia Gentileschi

Thursday, September 1 at 8:00 pm

A life more dramatic than an Italian opera: trained in art by her father, sexually assaulted as a teenager, Artemisia survived a sensational trial to become an internationally renowned painter, and the secret lover of a Florentine nobleman.

“On stage, Artemisia is also vengeful, but philosophical, and ultimately joyful. She sings of fate and destiny and, as she did so, I was moved, included, inspired, comforted.”— Phyllis Chesler, noted feminist writer
