Slide Talk about Georgia O'Keeffe's Life and Art
"My Time with Georgia O'Keeffe"
Saturday, March 2, 2019, at 2 p.m.
at the Studio of Roberta Salma, 1375 Burlingame Ave., Burlingame, CA 94010
Admission: $10 per person
Join me as I share what I learned about the famous artist through the summer and fall of 1976 and into winter 1977, when I worked as O’Keeffe's weekend companion in her two New Mexico homes. Between my personal experience and study of the artist and my work in the years that followed, I gained a unique perspective on O’Keeffe’s life, her art practice, and lessons that all artists can take to heart. The talk is illustrated, and there will be time for questions. Get a map and more information.
Make Your Own Art at Ghost Ranch, in O'Keeffe Country
"My week with Anna was transformative. I took the class because of her background and credentials, however what I received was so much more. Her sincere interest in us as artists, coupled with the majesty of landscape transported me to a place of grounding, confidence, and passion for the power of creativity." — Susan Thompson, 2015 workshop participant
March 14-18, 2019: "Beginners: Find Your Inner O’Keeffe and Find Yourself"
Georgia O’Keeffe was once a beginner herself. This workshop at Ghost Ranch — for beginners, amateurs, and those looking for a new start for their work — follows O’Keeffe’s dictum to "fill a space in a beautiful way." Experience lessons that transformed O’Keeffe's art and that she assigned novices. This class opens up the making of art with a view toward O’Keeffe’s own perspective and practices. I worked for O’Keeffe in 1976 and went on to study art and enjoy a long museum career. This workshop is full.
September 8-13, 2019: "Painting in O'Keeffe Country"

I worked for her, then went on to my own career in the visual arts. Course runs Thursday afternoon, Sept. 8 to Monday morning, Sept. 13 at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico. Details available soon.
