Women Powered Art in North Carolina by da-AL

Great art, impressive art, and terrific art! That — though foremost the wonderfulness of spending time with our dear friend in North Carolina — defines the marvelous visit that my husband and I had. In this post, I explained how we had the good fortune to catch an exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Art that featured work by the enormously influential American artist, Georgia O’Keeffe. (And here I tell about another wing of the museum.) In addition to her art, the show featured works inspired by O’Keeffe…

Is there an artist who inspires you?

  1. Hm, Table Setter seems to me to be more inspired by Matisse and Gauguin than O’Keeffe. As for the rest, I’m not sure I see connections or relationships but then I’m not getting to read the captions either. Still. I find the art interesting on its own merit.

    • I agree, Sharon – like fitting square pegs into round holes – but still worth seeing. the whole time, I thought would have been better if they’d tweaked the show’s theme…

  2. You really are on an art spree, how wonderful! I like “The Bridge” and “LA curbed” best out of the above.

    When I was young I was very much impressed by Gauguin, especially his development from Breton paintings to South Sea paintings. And my favourite always was Franz Marc, whose development finally ended in spiritual, transcendent paintings.
    But there are lots of other painters whose work I like, also street artists … 😉 … I do like Jeremy Mann’s paintings. As a contrast to that I like the Jugendstil paintings of the Czech artist Mucha.

  3. We were just at the National Gallery of Canada over the holidays and I had a chance to see Alex Janvier’s Morning Star in person. He’s an Indigenous artist in Canada in his eighties right now, but his body of work is incredible and Morning Star is stunning–it’s painted right on the dome of the Atrium!
