Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC, Features Exhibition of Works by Georgia O'Keeffe
The Weatherspoon Art Museumat the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in Greensboro, NC, is presenting the exhibition, Georgia O'Keeffe from Southern Collections, from Mar. 2 through April 27, 2003.
The exhibition, sponsored by American Express Company, includes eleven paintings and works on paper borrowed from collections throughout the region. The exhibition is the first of its kind in North Carolina and will appear exclusively at the Weatherspoon.
Georgia O'Keeffe is an icon of American art for her wide-ranging contributions to modernism. Her extraordinary ability to combine technical genius with spiritual depth has made her images instantly recognizable all over the world. Issues to be explored in this show include how painting allows for the human imagination to be stretched, how new symbols and expressive formulae may be created, and how art may transform the sensibilities of not just the individual, but of the culture. Modernism changed America and the world, and O'Keeffe's contribution is a major part of that story.
Georgia O'Keeffe from Southern Collections, was organized by Will South, Curator of Collections
at the Weatherspoon, and
Sarah Whitaker Peters, author of the acclaimed critical biography, Becoming O'Keeffe.
