"The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum is delighted to present “Georgia O’Keeffe and The Faraway: Nature and Image,” which opens on May 11, 2012. This exhibition is the first to demonstrate how the beauty and elegance of O’Keeffe’s paintings were prompted by the intimacy of her ongoing experiences with the Southwest’s natural forms, especially because of the camping trips she made to remote areas.
The exhibition will be on view until May 5, 2013, and includes drawings and paintings inspired by the beauty of the painted desert surrounding O’Keeffe’s house at Ghost Ranch, which she purchased in 1940, and by the camping and rafting trips she made. Highlights of the exhibition include O’Keeffe’s paintings, photographs made by others of places she camped, and a recently made photographic panorama of the “Black Place” that establishes a context for the exhibition’s reconstruction of a site where O’Keeffe and her friend Maria Chabot camped in 1944.
