SANTA FE, NM.- The Georgia OKeeffe Museum
announced the publication of Words|Works, a book of quotes from Georgia OKeeffe. Published by the Georgia OKeeffe Museum, the 48-page book combines OKeeffes most poignant and memorable words with her iconic works of art in an intimate volume that proves OKeeffe expressed herself beautifully in paint but was also an eloquent writer.
The quotes selected for the volume were chosen by the Georgia OKeefe Museums curators and researchers, and also by those who knew the artist personally. Taken largely from interviews and published catalog statements, as well as the thousands of personal letters she wrote to friends and family, OKeeffes words illuminate her innermost thoughts on life, art, the act of creating, and her deep appreciation for the natural world.
Compiling Words|Works has been a special project of the Museum, said Robert A. Kret, director of the Georgia OKeeffe Museum. Perfect for holiday gift giving, this stocking stuffer-sized book is a unique volume that truly has something for everyone, from the art novice to fans of Georgia OKeeffe alike.
Words|Works, Volume 1 (Georgia OKeeffe Museum; September 2013; U.S. $9.95/Can. $9.95; ISBN 978-0-9793498-7-4) is the first volume in what will become a series of books bringing together Georgia OKeefes words with her iconic images. Volume 1 will be available in the Georgia OKeeffe Museum Store, located inside the Georgia OKeeffe Museum, and on the Stores website, beginning September 30, 2013.
