Georgia O’Keeffe & Alfred Stieglitz: 2018

August 1, 2018 - November 17, 2018

Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) and Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) are considered to be two of the most influential figures in 20th century American art. Stieglitz, a prominent photographer and gallery owner, is known for elevating photography to fine art as well as introducing European modern art to the New York art scene.  He gave Georgia O’Keeffe her first solo show in 1917, promoted her work, and married her in 1924. Their love story – one of passion, deceit, and betrayal – is legendary as it documents a significant time in the history of modern art.

Watercolors by Jerome Chesley, Terry Denson, Kathleen Durdin, Libit Jones, Donna Morrison and Mary Louise Ringers

August 1, 2018 - November 17, 2018

The origins of watercolor painting go back to prehistoric times when the first known artists painted cave walls with natural pigments. Watercolors have dominated Asian art and they have also had a prominent place in Western art history. They became particularly popular in Europe and the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries; this can be seen in works by modern masters Wassily Kandinsky, Emil Nolde, Paul Klee,  Edward Hopper and Georgia O’Keeffe.
