Loren MacIver - 1980's
I was one of a group of mostly young people that were privileged to spend time with Loren MacIver in her home and studio during the mid-1980's.

I was introduced to Loren by my artist friend, Curtis Ether. Curtis and I were Loren's escorts for one of her final shows of new works at the Matisse gallery.

If there are any others from our crew of "vagabonds and gypsies" that were part of Loren's coterie at that time (or in other years), I would love to hear from you to reminisce about this amazing woman.

Loren MacIver: Provincetown Years
From about 1930-1938 my parents, Ed and Kathryn McCulley, lived in a shack on Cape Cod. They were friends of Loren and Lloyd and we are pretty sure our parents helped them build their shack. They were all in their early twenties----does anyone know about this period, 1930-1938? We're pretty sure they would have met early on---1930-31. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely, Kathy Besag

Born in New York City in 1909, Loren MacIver was entirely self-taught. Her style did not belong to any particular school or followed any aesthetic theory but emerged from her own poetic intuition. During the 1930s she worked under the Federal
Arts Project and in 1938 had her first one-woman show in New York. After the 1950s, her paintings became bolder and more abstract. MacIver is considered by many critics as one of the forerruners of abstract expressionism. (source:
