Georgia O'Keeffe from Southern Collections

  • Mar 2, 2003 – Apr 27, 2003

Georgia O'Keeffe from Southern Collections included eleven paintings and works on paper borrowed from collections throughout the region. The exhibition was the first of its kind in North Carolina and appeared 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. 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 made possible through the support of the American Express Company and was organized by Will South, Curator of Collections at the Weatherspoon. Noted O'Keeffe scholar, Dr. Sarah W. Peters, wrote an essay on the theme of O'Keeffe as a colorist, based on the Weatherspoon exhibition. Her essay was published in the March 2003 issue of American Art Review. 

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
