A Woman on Paper

By Heather Renken

Directed by Heather Renken

"A Woman on Paper," a new play written and directed by Heather Renken, depicts the 20th century art impresario, promoter, and photographer, Alfred Steiglitz, and his wife, modern artist and Sun Prairie native, Georgia O'Keeffe. Interlacing a straightforward narrative with elements of experimental theater, movement, and multimedia, the play uses comedy and drama to explore the couple's dilemmas about the nature of art and love as they evolve through a relationship and a lifetime. Join us for a new look at arguably the two most important contributors to early modern American art.

Talkbacks are free and open to the public following the matinee performances at approximately 4pm on these dates:
• Sunday, August 8, Patricia Delker, photographer, photo workshop (Magic Images) provider, and instructor.
• Sunday, August 22, James Rhem, independent scholar in the history of photography and author of books on Ralph Eugene Meatyard and Aaron Siskind, currently working on a book on photographer (and friend of Stieglitz) Anne W. Brigman (1869-1950).
• Sunday, August 29, Melanie Herzog, Professor of Art History, Edgewood College, author of books on Elizabeth Catlett and Regoven.
