FIELD TRIP: Georgia O’Keefe and Lake George Show
Show Open 9:30 – 5:15 PM,
50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Dr, Golden Gate Park, San rancisco, CA
About the show: On the shores of Lake George, the “Queen of American Lakes,” O’Keeffe found a place to concentrate on her work without the distractions of her life in New York City. Working in her humble studio, nicknamed the “shanty,” she reveled in the discovery of new subjects that included landscapes, flowers, fruit, trees, leaves, and architecture.  Lake George served as a rural retreat for the artist, providing the basic material for her art, which in turn evoked the spirit of place that was essential to O’Keeffe’s modern approach to the natural world.
