      "The production is outstanding. Directed by Ouida White, all three women
       shine through the heartbreak, pathos and humor . . . It'll be tough to
       match this ensemble on a local stage anytime soon."  Mark Lowry, Fort 
       Worth Star Telegram
       "Ouida White directed the piece with glowing honesty and pure organic                  truth. After seeing this production, I can see why The Column readers                voted her Best Director of a Play (Non-Equity). The staging had
        purpose and intent, and the performances White drew out from the
        three actresses were outstanding." John Garcia, The Column

GEORGIA O’KEEFFE was born November 15, 1887 in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. She studied art, but feeling stymied by traditional methods and forced to earn her living, she quit painting for several years. Befriended and encouraged by Alon Bement, she began to paint again. A friend sent some of her drawings to Alfred Stieglitz. His reaction to her drawings was overwhelming, stating "At last, a woman on paper!" When he exhibited her drawings without her permission, she demanded that he take them down. He refused. She relented. Thus began “Stieglitz and O’Keeffe.” In 1923, Stieglitz held a major exhibit of O'Keeffe's work at the Anderson Galleries. The following year, Stieglitz and his wife of 31 years divorced and he and Georgia married. That year she painted the flower series for which she would become famous. Years later, suffocated by his large and demanding family, she traveled to New Mexico, and found a spiritual and artistic home. She returned every summer until 1946, when her husband died. Only then did she move from New York and permanently reside in New Mexico, She died March 6, 1986 at the age of 98. Her body was cremated and her ashes were scattered over her beloved 'faraway.'
