The Art Forger

B.A. Shapiro

Making a living reproducing famous artworks for a popular online retailer and desperate to improve her situation, Claire Roth, a struggling young artist, is lured into a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful gallery owner.  She agrees to forge a painting--a Degas masterpiece stolen from the Gardner Museum--in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery.  But when that very same long-missing Degas painting is delivery to Claire's studio, she begins to suspect that it may itself be a forgery.

Meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm
