Program Title O'KEEFFE: Close Up and Faraway
Character Name Georgia O'Keeffe
Program Description "Who am I? What do I have to say? How can I best express it?" The artist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) continually probed into these essential human questions. Prominent in the male-dominated art world of New York City, O’Keeffe took a residence in New Mexico in the 1930’s. During the seven decades of her career she challenged herself with “what to say” that was uniquely her own. Her colors might be bright and vivid, or black and white. Her subjects were landscapes, buildings, flowers, bones, shells, leaves, trees, cityscapes, skulls, skies, clouds, doors, and various combinations and abstractions of them. All were rendered into her own stylized images in a wide variety of mediums, while she honed an image of herself as private, independent, solitary, mysterious. This Chautauqua’s intentional suspension of time and space invites the audience to have its own O’Keeffe experience through her photographs, her words, and the language that she preferred and perfected – her art.
