Carr, O’Keeffe, Kahlo: Places of Their Own

June 30, 2001 - September 9, 2001

Few North American women artists have achieved the legendary stature of Emily Carr (1871-1945, Canadian), Frida Kahlo (1907-1954, Mexican) and Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986, American). In their native countries, each has a secure artistic reputation as an outstanding woman painter of the century. Collectively, their work gives form to a mythos of North America, linking region and nationality to larger forces at work in Western consciousness.

The exhibition comprised more than 60 paintings which are revelatory. There is much we can never know about the inner workings of an artist’s mind, but there is much we can learn-much that emerges in the process of comparing creative lives and achievements.

Places of Their Own was inspired by Dr Sharyn Udall’s book of the same name. Dr Udall was the guest curator.
