Georgia O'Keeffe Revisited

Another chance to see the O'Keeffe exhibit. Also showing will be: American Abstraction, 1930s Bay Bridge Construction, and 1960s Walasse Ting's 1c Life.

I will have a limited number of free tickets available, given out in order of RSVP. If you are a member and have a ticket to offer, please let me know. Feel free to reserve tickets for 11:00 or 11:15 am. 

Please plan to be 20-30 minutes early, as once we enter the museum, cell coverage will be limited and it will be difficult to find each other. You must cancel 24 hours in advance to avoid incurring a no-show without good cause. Two no-shows will lead to removal from the group.

10:15 am: Meet
10:30 am: Eat (BYO food-drink OK)
11:00 am: See
1:00 pm: Free

The Exhibit: 

Georgia O'Keeffe

[Edited Press Release]

"Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George will examine the extraordinary body of work created by the artist of and at Lake George, New York. From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O’Keeffe lived for part of the year at Alfred Stieglitz’s 36-acre family property situated just north of Lake George Village, along the western shore of this 30-mile-long glacial lake in the Adirondack Mountains. Despite the fact that the Lake George work was critical to Georgia O’Keeffe’s development of her signature style of modernism and abstraction, this is the first major exhibition and publication devoted to this period in her career. Lake George served as a rural retreat for the artist, providing the basic material for her art, which in turn evoked the spirit of place that was essential to O’Keeffe’s modern approach to the natural world.

During this highly productive decade, O’Keeffe created more than two hundred paintings on canvas and paper in addition to sketches and pastels, making the Lake George years among the most prolific and transformative of her seven-decade career.  The exhibition will include 55 of these works, drawn from public and private collections.

The exhibition will explore the full range of work she produced—including magnified botanical compositions inspired by the flowers and vegetables that she grew in her garden; telescopic views of a single leaf or pairs of overlapping leaves that are based on the variety of trees that grew around Lake George; architectural subjects, including abstracted paintings of the weathered barns and buildings on the Stieglitz property; and panoramic landscape views of the lake and surrounding hills that influenced her subsequent work in New Mexico."
