Georgia O’Keeffe – A Pioneer of American Modernism

You are invited to take a Zoom art history class by the Friends of the Case Memorial Library.  On Thursday, March 21, at 7 pm, to celebrate Women’s History Month, we will study “Georgia O’Keeffe” who had a “unique style beginning with her watercolors and more dramatically in the charcoal drawings that led to total abstraction.”

Jane Blair will guide us as we look at “Georgia’s art, her own conflicts, and her solutions in a fertile era of great cultural change.  On the front lines in the conflict between realism and abstraction was a woman.  This woman was able to influence even the male dominated Avant Garde culture of New York City in the beginnings of the “Modern Century.”

Jane Blair is a sculptor, and has been an art educator in many fine art studio disciplines as well as art history, art appreciation, computer art, photography and graphic illustration.  She presently runs an art awareness program called ArtMatters, contributing actively and directly in support of art advocacy for all ages.  She has a BFA from Boston University and a MFA from the University of Illinois.

Join us for this exploration of one of the country’s most talented, progressive, and provocative woman in art.  Registrations are required and may be made by phone at 203.891.2170 or online at .  The link to the program will be emailed to you earlier on the day of the presentation.
