Ken Price at the Georgia O’ Keefe Museum

Episode 121: Today I talk to Ariel Plotek, Curator of Fine Arts at the Georgia O’Keefe Museum about his Ken Price exhibition opening June 7. I found it so interesting how his work corresponds so well to Georgia O’Keefe’s.

Far Wide Texas

Episode 34: One of the most significant artists of the 20th Century, Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) was devoted to creating imagery that expressed what she called “the wideness and wonder of the world as I live in it.”  The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, offers insights not only into the artist’s paintings, but also her creative process and the light and landscape that inspired her.
Brooke talks to Dr. Cody Hartley, Director of Curatorial Affairs, about Georgia O’Keeffe’s Far Wide Texas, a collection of watercolors the artist created during the time she lived in Canyon, Texas (1916-1918). This was a period of radical innovation and marks O’Keeffe’s commitment to abstraction. Dr. Hartley explains how these paintings exemplify O’Keeffe’s refusal to be restrained by convention or to be defined by others.
In the words of O’Keeffe herself, “Take time to look…” And to listen.
