Georgia O'Keeffe topic of Lunchbox Lecture Aug. 26
N. Taylor Collins will present “The Love Letters of Georgia O'Keeffe” during Lunchbox Lectures at noon, Tuesday, Aug. 26, at the Dover Art League, 21 W. Loockerman St. in Dover.
Collins says the life of an artist cannot be separated from his or her work, and correspondence is one way artists reveal themselves. During this short presentation, Collins will speak about the relationship O'Keeffe shared with Alfred Stieglitz, especially through their almost 25,000 pages of correspondence, and how she came to become one of the most recognizable artists of the 20th century.
The talk is free and open to the public. Attendees will also be able to enjoy the Dover Art League show, which focuses on interpretations of O'Keeffe by league members. Collins, an artist and writer, is a partner in Parke Green Galleries at 331 S. State St. in Dover and a member of the Dover Art League board.
Funding for programs is provided by the Delaware Division of the Arts. For more information call 302-674-0402.
