Local artist Marlene Aron discusses and presents slides of the beautiful and inspiring art of five fabulous women artists: Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot, Marie Bracquemond, Eva Gonzales and Camille Claudel.

These artists exhibited their works in the Salon and World Exposition in Paris, three of them exhibiting their paintings alongside Pissarro, Degas, Renoir, and Monet in the very first Impressionist exhibitions in the early 1870's.  They painted their family children, friends, and lovers, along with scenes of gardens, forests and landscapes.

Come take a journey through the artistry and lives of some of the movers and shakers of the Impressionist movement that would herald the beginning of the Modern Art movement that was to follow.
