O’Keeffe’s WT Years to be highlighted in ‘Around Texas with Chancellor John Sharp’ on Panhandle PBS

CANYON — Iconic artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s time at West Texas A&M University is in the spotlight in the Season 4 premiere of “Around Texas with Chancellor John Sharp.” The episode rolled out around the state beginning Oct. 5; the series airs at 11 p.m. Sundays beginning Oct. 8 on Panhandle PBS in the Amarillo area.

Dr. Amy Von Lintel, WT’s professor of art history and director of gender studies, discusses O’Keeffe’s fruitful time in Canyon and Amarillo. “She lived or resided in Texas, was on the ground here, for maybe 37 months out of her 98 years — she was incredibly nomadic — but we have a huge and beautiful and very foundational body of work from 1916 to 1918 when she was … here in Canyon and when she was teaching at this very institution,” Von Lintel says in the episode. Von Lintel is a renowned expert in O’Keeffe’s life and career and published “Georgia O’Keeffe’s Wartime Texas Letters” in 2020 and “Georgia O’Keeffe: Watercolors, 1916-1918” in 2016.
