If you’re an art nerd, you may already be familiar with the name Georgia O’Keeffe. Here’s the lowdown for the rest of us: Georgia was a legendary painter of flowers and skyscrapers. Indeed, so kick-arse were Georgia’s works that she earned the name “the Mother of American Modernism”.
If you’d like to treat your eyeballs to the lady’s iconic artworks, then you may like to pop past the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Their new exhibition, O'Keeffe, Preston, Cossington Smith: Making Modernism, features a stack of paintings from Georgia (for the first-ever time on our shores), along with her Aussie contemporaries Margaret Preston and Grace Cossington Smith. It kicks off tomorrow and runs till Monday October 2nd.
Head on over this-a-way to find out more, and to nab yourself a ticket or two.
