Georgia O'Keeffe Lecture - Fri. Feb. 28 - 6-7:30 pm VAPA 1001 Fee: $15
Ms. Smith will be lecturing on the life and seven-decade career of Georgia O'Keeffe
to coincide with the exhibition opening at the De Young Museum in San Francisco in
mid-February entitled, Modern Nature: Georgia O'Keeffe and Lake George.
From 1918 until the early 1930s, Georgia O’Keeffe lived for part of the year at Alfred Stieglitz’s 36-acre family property situated along the western shore of this 30-mile-long lake located in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. The work created here was critical to the development of her signature style of modernism and abstraction. This exhibition will include 55 of these works, drawn from public and private collections.
On the shores of Lake George she found a place to concentrate on her work without the distractions of her life in New York City. Working in her humble studio, nicknamed the “shanty,” she reveled in the discovery of new subjects that included flowers, fruit, trees, leaves, and architecture, as well as, the panoramic landscape views of the lake and surrounding hills that would influence her subsequent work in New Mexico.
