The Transylvania Times -

Based On O'Keefe Painting, Studios To Host 'Masterful Collaboration'


May 20, 2019

On May 24, from 5-8 p.m., many downtown artist studios and galleries will join together in the second annual Masterful Collabo-ration, using masterpiece works of the past, familiar to many, as inspiration to create new work.

This year's masterpiece choice is Georgia O'Keefe's painting, "Two Calla Lily on Pink."

Last year's Masterful Collaboration in November, was spearheaded by Red Wolf Gallery, Heart of the Matter, and Artists @ Work Studio and Gallery. Artists in each gallery presented new pieces inspired by Vermeer's "The Girl with the Pearl Earring."

McKenzie Keenan, owner of Heart of the Matter, said, "The last event was very successful on many levels. It was a chance to connect with art lovers and discuss the educational and historical aspects of the painting and the artist."

Joining the three original galleries are: Number 7 Arts, Local Color, Aura Studio & Gallery, Poplar & Ash, Blue Moon Gallery, Sun Dragon Art & Fiber, The Transylvania Community Arts Council and Shuptrine Gallery. This event corresponds with the 4th Friday Gallery Walk sponsored by The Transylvania Community Arts Council.
