This Modern World

October 1, 2013, 12:00 am
Before abstractionist Georgia O’Keeffe took the transforming New Mexico trip that would provide the landscape for her legendary work, the Wisconsin-born desert artist took cues from summers spent in lush New York. Who knew? Focusing on a formerly unveiled season of the artist’s work, Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George, presents an in-depth look at the serene Adirondack scenes from O’Keeffe’s early years. A different element of her dimensional collection, dark skies, velvet lakes and panoramic views dot the collection. A tribute to the velocity of O’Keeffe (vibrant oil canvasses, massively Freudian flora) the exhibition is intimate. A lecture on Thursday, Oct. 3 from curator Erin Coe of the Hyde Collection opens the event.

Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George:
6:30 pm, Thursday, Oct. 3. $5.
St. Francis Auditorium, 107 Palace Ave., 946-1039
