I’ve been looking forward to the Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario since I first heard about it last year. I went to the Members’ Preview this week but decided to stop in a little early so I could find a comfy spot and start reading Georgia: A Novel of Georgia O’Keeffe By Dawn Tripp. I love historical fiction and Georgia is a beautifully written novel about O’Keeffe, set mostly during the years at the beginning of her career when she lived in New York. By the time I walked through the doors of the exhibit, I was already a little more in love with O’Keeffe and couldn’t wait to see her work in person. If you are lucky enough to be in Toronto before this exhibit at the AGO ends in July, make sure to check it out. And since you’ll probably be inspired to learn more about her after seeing her art up close, you’ll be happy to know that the AGO has copies of Georgia for sale in the museum shop. Because I’m now a little obsessed with her and want to learn more, I also plan to read Roxana Robinson’s 1989 biography, Georgia O’Keeffe: A Life.
