    supplemented by O Keeffe paintings that closely relate in chronology to the drawings The National Gallery of Art in Washington D C and the Georgia O Keeffe Museum of Art in New Mexico are the major lenders to the show The burning question behind this show is What in the world was Georgia O Keeffe doing in Columbia South Carolina In 1915 O Keeffe was a 27 year old aspiring artist one who had studied in New York While in the big city she met South Carolina native Anita Pollitzer and the two became fast and fabulous friends It was Anita who told Georgia tales of the South Needing to work to support herself O Keeffe accepted a position at Columbia College While in South Carolina O Keeffe wrote often to Pollitzer giving us a fascinating account of her time here These letters give us clues to the enormous breakthrough experience by O Keeffe which led directly to her becoming one of America s most famous artists O Keeffe certainly found Columbia slower than New York Shortly after her arrival in town Georgia wrote to Anita Anita it is going to take such a tremendous effort to keep from stagnating here that I don t know whether I am going to be equal to it or not I have been painting a lot of canvases and boards white getting ready for work I think I am going to have lots of time to work but bless you Anita one can t work with nothing to express I never felt such vacancy in my life Everything is so mediocre I don t dislike it I don t like it It is existing not living and absolutely I just wish some one would take hold of me and shake me out of my wits I feel that insanity might be a luxury Part of O Keeffe s thinking in coming to Columbia in the first place involved having the time to paint away from her teachers and the demands of New York While she ultimately thought of Columbia as a shoe that didn t fit the time alone proved to be crucial in her development On the campus of Columbia College O Keeffe lived in a small room in Old Main and had a small space that would serve as a studio In a 1979 letter to Jerold Savory professor of English at Columbia College O Keeffe herself described the importance of her Carolina experience I had an exhibition of the work I had done with various teachers and when I looked at it and thought about it I realized that I was trying to work as each teacher had taught me and wanted me to Thinking of that it occurred to me I had ideas of my own I had never put down before as I had never seen things like them It was an important time in my life and some of my most important early drawings were made at
