Events - May Bus Trip to the AGO and Astoria

"Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience the beautiful innovative art of Georgia O’Keeffe, a trailblazing figure in American modernism. Making its only stop in North America at the AGO, Georgia O’Keeffe features more than 80 works of art capturing the essence of her deeply personal connection to the landscape, architecture and nature that inspired her iconic style.

"A major retrospective of the art and legacy of this profoundly influential artist, the exhibition examines O’Keeffe’s relationships with renowned photographers of the time including Ansel Adams, Paul Strand and Alfred Stieglitz. Stunning views of New Mexico by Adams, as well as nudes and portraits of O’Keeffe by Stieglitz, are additional highlights of this breathtaking artistic journey.

"The exhibition is organized by Tate Modern in collaboration with the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto and Bank Austria Kunstforum, Vienna."

There will be enough time at the AGO to catch up with some of your favourite permanent exhibits, and perhaps a stroll down the road to Curry's or Above Ground for some art supplies.

Topping off the trip is dinner at Astoria in Mississauga, finishing with some special desserts.

Treat yourself to Spring with some Georgia O'Keeffe!
