This moving documentary on the internationally renowned painter Agnes Martin was shot over a period of four years, from 1998 through 2002. Interviews with Martin are intercut with shots of her working in her studio located in Taos, New Mexico, with photographs and archival footage, and images of her artwork spanning over five decades. The film is a venue for Martin to speak about her work, her working methods, her life as an artist, and her views about the creative process.

Dir. Mary Lance, 2002, 57 mins.

Free screening, registration is essential.

Esker Foundation is proud to partner with Sidewalk Citizen on our film series. The bakery is generously providing complimentary treats inspired by each film screening this fall.
