Creating and Expressing Personal Style

I opened Women’s Month at the Brooklyn Museum, to view two exhibitions of female expression. I went for Marilyn Minter, but I came away with Georgia O’Keefe.

Georgia O’Keefe

Never a huge fan of her paintings, I learned so much about the whole woman, her attention to the details of her life, how meticulous she was about her clothing, beautifully documented by the great photographers in her life.

Never knew, and blown away.

Many garments made with her own hands, many carefully chosen and cherished for construction, simplicity of design, and tactile feel of natural fiber.

 Had a lunch break to avoid whiplash between these two powerful shows!
