O’Keeffe's art - her magnified flowers, abstractions, Southwest landscapes - will be placed in the context of her life and important relationships.

Georgia O'Keeffe was an originator of modern or avant-garde American Art. Born in Wisconsin, O'Keeffe was a student at the Art Institute of Chicago near the turn of the century. A photographer and art dealer, Alfred Stieglitz, significantly impacted her artistic career and gave O'Keeffe her first gallery show to critical acclaim. She returned the favor by serving as his model. O'Keeffe is famous for her magnified flowers, abstractions, and Southwest landscapes. This presentation by Patricia Waddell will place O'Keeffe's art in the context of her life and meaningful relationships.

Patricia Waddell was an active docent at the Tucson Museum of Art for six years, where she coordinated community docent Art Talks at over 20 venues. She is a lifelong art lover and has visited major museums throughout the United States and Europe. She received a bachelor's and master's degree from Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD). Her career ranged from managing a nonprofit that served victims of rape and domestic violence to raising millions in grants through her communications and development work in support of Baltimore City's most vulnerable youth.
