Georgia O’Keeffe Week

Our Popular Georgia O’Keeffe Week is Back!  Join us as we celebrate Georgia’s time as a young artist here at Wiawaka. We are a unique and honored location here on Lake George that can provide proof of her early days on Lake George.  This week will be held from July 11th – 15th, 2022

Stop by the Front Desk if you are interested in seeing Wakonda where Georgia stayed,  the historical marker, signage and the sitting room dedicated to Georgia’s stay here at Wiawaka.
Before Yaddo was founded in Saratoga Springs, Katrina and Spencer Trask built their first artists’ retreat at Amitola – an Adirondack lodge known as Wakonda where students from the Art Students League of New York held their first retreat. Georgia O’Keeffe (pictured at Wiawaka) was a registered guest-artist in 1908. In honor of her stay we have put together a week filled with programs all about Georgia. Be sure to register early!

Movie Night w/ Georgia
July 11th, 2021
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Wiawaka Program / House of Trix
Come enjoy the 2009 Georgia O’Keeffe film in which Joan Allen stars as acclaimed artist Georgia O’Keefe. Smitten with photographer Alfred Stieglitz (Jeremy Irons), O’Keefe is devastated to discover her beloved husband has strayed. A retreat to Taos, New Mexico, however, provided the painter with the inspiration for “The Lawrence Tree,” one of her most famous works. Ed Begley, Jr. and Tyne Daly co-star.
It is free to come enjoy the movie for overnight, season pass and day pass guests. Chairs under the tent will be available.
