At 88 years-old, Audrey Flack holds a unique place in the history of contemporary art in America. Feminist, rebel, mother, painter, sculptor and teacher, Audrey’s often controversial 40-year career evolved from abstract expressionism in the 1950s to photorealism in the 1970s. One of the first women ever included in the famed Janson’s History of Art, Audrey continues to create, explore, and inspire with her unique style and indomitable spirit. Queen of Hearts follows Flack as she takes her work in a brand new direction and reveals her long-term struggles as the mother of a child with. She is a provocateur and a rebel, an example and an inspiration. Queen of Hearts is a moving portrait of an artist who is still testing, still experimenting, still searching.

Presented in partnership with MAWA.

Reviews

An absolutely gorgeous documentary about the photorealist painter and sculptor, Audrey Flack. “Queen of Hearts: Audrey Flack ” enraptured the audience and earned a standing ovation. It is a beautifully done documentary of a life well-lived...she is truly a force of nature.

- The Berkshire Edge

The best thing I can say about QUEEN OF HEARTS is simply just see it. It is a wonderful portrait of a mover and shaker in the art world, who is also one hell of a grand lady.
