ART LOVERS have been invited to view an exciting exhibition at the New Brewery Arts in Cirencester.

Georgia O'Keeffe: Memories of Drawings will be displayed at the art centre - which is situated in Brewery Court, Cricklade Street, Cirencester - between Saturday, April 13 until Saturday, June 15.

This exhibition will showcase 21 photogravures of drawings produced by the pioneering American artist between 1915-1963, reflecting the period in which O’Keeffe established herself as a major figure in American Modernism.  

Photogravure is a printmaking process that produces etchings with the tone and detail of a photograph through exposure onto a copper plate.  

Although best known as a painter, drawing was central to O’Keeffe’s practice. 

She used drawing as a language to evoke important moments and emotions – the curve of a flower petal, a desert horizon, the wave of one's hair, or the flow of a winding road.  

The exhibition includes nine prints of her earliest charcoal abstracts alongside works originally rendered in pencil and watercolour, capturing subjects ranging from the artist’s early morning excursions with her sister, to surreal still lives of seashells, banana flowers and animal horns.
