The Meaning of Blue: The Paintings of Katharine Nash Rhoades Tuesday, August 27 Gallery 406, Arts West Imagine living in the intersection of art and history during a cultural revolution in America – the birth of Modern Art. Much has been written about Katharine Nash Rhoades: painter, poet, feminist and yet the Smithsonian sees her as “a woman of mystery.” Her decades long friendships with Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Georgia O’Keeffe, Charles Freer and others have stirred great speculation. This exhibit reveals through her journals and paintings, that historians and even Rhoades had thought she had burned, the life, times and spirituality of Katharine Nash Rhoades. During the reception, former Elon faculty member Barbara Rhoades, great niece of the artist, will speak informally on “Aunty K” and the works on view. Exhibition continues through September 27.
