Today, Roger and I finally made it to the Columbia Museum of Art to see O'KEEFFE: HER CAROLINA STORY, along with INDEPENDENT SPIRITS: WOMEN ARTISTS OF SOUTH CAROLINA.  THE O'Keeffe show is small but intimate and powerful.  What I loved was the feeling of being in the presence of a young and brilliant Georgia O'Keeffe about to meet Stieglitz and be introduced to the world!  I am so happy I didn't miss this show.

INDEPENDENT SPIRITS, though it may not have included some women artists in SC that I admire greatly, was exceptional and the pieces were well chosen and thoughtfully displayed, giving each work its own space.  All in all I was quite impressed.  I came away from the Columbia Museum feeling uplifted by the quality of the exhivition and proud that Tree Totem IX had it's place in the show...  If you have not seen the two shows, I think it is definitely worth your time to head for the Columbia Museum of Art soon!    http://www.columbiamuseum.org/exhibitions/independent-spirits

I would love to hear from you if you have seen or see these shows.  Of course we all have our own perspectives and I would love to hear yours...
