I’ve always said that if I were to win the lottery (not likely since I don’t play it), I would be able to fly somewhere for a day or two to see an exhibit that interested me. One that I have just missed was described on the blog of Seven Pines Designs. The Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstraction exhibit ended January 17, but it looked like one that I would have enjoyed. I love all the photos that Seven Pines Designs includes with her review of the O’Keefe exhibit. Lots of inspiration there, from the paintings themselves, but also from the colors used.
One of my favorite photographs is a Laura Gilpin of O’Keefe sitting at a window. I really don’t know why this particular photo appeals to me so much, but it does.”Georgia O’Keeffe” by Laura Gilpin, 1953, gelatin silver print. You can see a copy of this photo here.

“[This] revelatory survey of the work…should reopen eyes to an undeniable fact: O’Keeffe produced some of the most original and ambitious art in the twentieth century.”
– Jerry Saltz, New York Magazine
Another exhibit that sounds interesting is “The Subject Is Women: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism,” as written about in the NYTimes.
And then there’s this as stated in the Times:
“Design USA: Contemporary Innovation” at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum is less an exhibition than an extra-large design seminar in your head.
This article is mostly about using an iPod Touch as the guide to the exhibit. I might find that difficult since I’ve never used a Touch before. Hmmm…. Cooper Hewitt link here.
