The Through the Flower Art Space will host its inaugural First Flower Friday event on Friday, Aug. 23.

Judy Chicago will be in conversation with acclaimed arts journalist, Jori Finkel, on women pioneers of abstract painting, including Hilma af Klint, Georgia O’Keeffe and Agnes Pelton. Their topic for the night is inspired by an interview in Finkel’s new book, “It Speaks to Me,” in which Chicago discusses a painting by Pelton as an example of early abstraction that she finds powerful and empowering.

This ticketed event will be held at Through the Flower Art Space in Belen from 6-7:30 p.m, Friday, Aug. 23. The talk will be followed by a Q & A and a book signing. Copies of “It Speaks to Me” will be available for purchase in the shop.

Space is limited so reservations are required. Admission is $5 and tickets may be purchased through HoldMyTicket. All proceeds support Through the Flower. To buy tickets, visit
