A graphic image in warm tones of layers of pointy mountains against an orange and yellow sky. Set one third above the bottom is a dwelling in the distance at the foot of the mountains.

As part of its ongoing Contemporary Voices series, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum presents work by Ken Price (1935-2012). One of the foremost American sculptors of his day, Price was also an accomplished graphic artist. Ten ceramic sculptures by Price, a longtime resident of Taos, New Mexico, will be displayed on pedestals throughout the Museum’s galleries. The organic, sensual forms, and chromatic complexity of Price’s sculptures will be paired and juxtaposed with O’Keeffe’s still life and landscape subjects, inviting visitors to view both artists in a new light. Watercolors by Georgia O’Keeffe will be presented alongside kindred works on paper, an homage to the high desert, by Ken Price.
