A touring exhibition showcasing drawings produced by artist Georgia O’Keeffe between 1915 and 1963, spanning the period she became a major figure in American art.

Produced between 1915 and 1963, the drawings span the period O’Keeffe became a major figure in American art, renowned for her distinctive forms and her tenacity in pursuing her innovative style. Drawing was central to O’Keeffe’s practice. Often adapted into paintings, she used drawing as a language to evoke important moments and emotions – the curve of a flower petal, the horizon of a desert landscape, the wave of one’s hair or the flow of a winding road. The exhibition is enhanced with artworks created in response by local community groups who have been working with artist Colette Whittington.
