Ms. Georgia O’Keeffe It was during the early 1900’s when a young, inspiring artist was about to change the face of American Art. Her views on the world through her art were none other than inspiring, passionate, and full of life. Georgia O’Keeffe, one of the most famous painters of the 20th Century, showed America that women can paint just as well, if not better, than their male counterparts. She filled the eyes of America with color and the realization that art does not have to be in the form of realism, but in the way that one sees the beauty in life. Ms. Georgia O’Keeffe’s transition from Wisconsin to New York, then back to the dry lands of New Mexico made her artistic life sprout with knowledge. No woman could live up to the life Georgia O’Keeffe has lived and or show the meaning of life in a more beautiful way. Georgia O’Keeffe was born on a beautiful day in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin in the year 1887. She was the second born among her seven brothers and sisters and had strong ambitions of being an artist. O’Keeffe went to her first art school in 1905 when she was only 18 years of age. This school was the Art Institute of Chicago and couple years after that she moved on to the Art Students League of New York from 1907-1908. O’Keeffe then was then tired of the life in the fine arts and moved on to being an art teacher for various schools in Texas, Virginia, and South Carolina from 1911-1918. During her career of being a teacher, O’Keeffe started to create her very own works of art using charcoal on a canvas. These incredibly different looking abstract pieces of art began to catch the eye of none other than American photographer and gallery owner, Alfred Stieglitz. After supposedly exclaiming, "At last, a woman on paper!" he exhibited her drawings at the 291 gallery, where the works of many avant-garde European and American artists and photographers were…...

...different aspects in all other art forms is modernism. One leading modernist Georgia O’Keeffe who was also seen as the first female modernist who also played a pivotal role in the development of American Modernism and its relationship with European leading movements of the early 20th century. Georgia O’Keeffe is one of America’s preeminent modernist painters amongst the art world and without her much of the art we take for granted now, we would most likely not have been introduced to or introduced in such a way as she had done for us. Georgia O’Keeffe was born on November 15th 1887, in a farmhouse on a large dairy farm just outside of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. Where she spent most of her young childhood until she moved to Williamsburg, Virginia. Fortunately unlike other girls of this time O’Keeffe came from a family where female education was a tradition, and without her education she would not have had the opportunities she was presented with. Modernism in art usually associated with the portrayal of cultural movements in the late 19th the mid 20th century. Many artists veered away from the traditionally taught concepts and techniques of painting that had been practiced and valued since the Renaissance time period, which was art already seen with great pride and to stray away from such a enlightened art form was not only risky but also looked down upon and seen as radical. At a young age Georgia O’Keeffe already knew she wanted to be a painter, with her mom influencing......

Georgia Cornerstone

...The Georgia colony decreed by King George and after his namesake, was designed around a different form of government than was previously used. Since it was the most outlying colony of the time other measures, such as the prohibition and outlaw of slavery, were used to prevent insurrections, lost revenue from runaways, and a standing militia to prevent invasions from the Spaniards, among other things. This grated on the farmers and the gentlemen who owned the most land, after Oglethorpe and the other trustees wrote letters and essays on the fact it would make for a better protected Georgia, malcontent set in throughout. This malcontent spread and more letters, essays, and small books were written on why slavery would be more profitable for the poor farmers here. The trustees fought back one last time, before they were slowly whittled away and out of the government. Slavery was then legalized again, and to prevent runaways and other crimes, the punishments for slaves for them were severe. With these slaves and more products, the expansion of land was needed. With the discovery of gold and the need for more land, the Creek Indian Nation was effectively wiped out and removed from their lands quietly. The Cherokees put up a longer fight and were forced west on the Trail of Tears. A minority group of Cherokees sold and signed away their lands and the Georgian and federal governments pushed them out, to appease the wealthy land owners. Oglethorpe’s fears became prominent when only...

Georgia Court System

...Courtney Lyles, Research Component: Georgia Court System, April 6, 2014 | | | The state court system is the second component of the dual-court system of the American court system. With the passing of the Reorganization Act of 1801, state court systems began to follow a “three-tiered structure of trial courts of limit jurisdiction, trial courts of general jurisdiction and appellate courts” (Schmalleger, 2014, p. 206). The Georgia court system is composed of five classes of trial level courts, which include the magistrate, probate, juvenile, state and superior courts; in addition to those five trial level courts, the Georgia court system also includes about three hundred fifty municipal courts, which operate on a local basis. The Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court make up the two appellate level courts of the Georgia court system (Georgiacourts.gov, 2014). The magistrate court is a trial court of limited jurisdiction, and the magistrate court of the Georgia court system includes one hundred fifty-nine courts and chief magistrates and three hundred thirty-three magistrates (AOC, 2014). The magistrate courts “issue warrants, hear minor criminal offenses and civil claims involving amounts of $15,000 or less,” “it is the first resort for many civil disputes…in criminal matters magistrates hold preliminary hearings, issue search warrants to law enforcement and also warrants for the arrest of a particular person…or set bail for defendants” (Georgiacourts.gov, 2014)....

The Georgia Colony

...The Georgia Colony In 1732, the Georgia Colony was founded by James Oglethorpe. It was the 12th colony of 13 to be established, and It was made to protect South Carolina from invasion from the French in Louisiana and the Spaniards in Florida. Georgia was named in honor of King George II of England. The geography of Georgia was mainly forests and hilly plains. It is bordered by current-day states Florida, Tennessee, North and South Carolina, and Alabama. It is a state next to the Atlantic Ocean, and there are other bodies of water within the state including the Chattahoochee River, Lake Hartwell, West Point Lake, and the Savannah River. The climate consists of mostly warmness! It is generally quite hot, but during the winter it cools down. Snow is, however, quite rare, as the average low temperature is about 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The average high temperature is 92 degrees Fahrenheit and the humidity is very high during the summer. This greatly increased the spread of disease in Colonial Georgia. Georgian’s main source of income came from farming. This farming generally included indigo –which is a type of mushroom, - rice, and sugar cane crops. This farming was successful because of the climate and geography of Georgia. Georgia was almost always warm and could have long growing seasons. This benefited the harvests. Slave labor was banned up until 1750, when Governor Oglethorpe left Georgia. After that, citizens demanded it be legal. Slaves were used on...

Georgie O'Keefe

...Flowers and Bones in the Desert As one of America’s renowned modernist artist, Georgia O’Keeffe brought in an exploration of the way in which American modernism was engaged into the Southwest. In the nineteenth century, O’Keeffe captured the western landscape and the spiritual mystique of the New Mexican badlands. This exhibition revealed the artworks of Georgia O’Keeffe. For this exhibition, the following three artworks being used are: Red Hills with Bones (1927), Red Hills with Flowers (1937), and Black Place II (1944-45). These paintings gave a good representation of O’Keeffe’s life and presented some historical relevance from the perspective of American modernism through the landscapes of the American Southwest. The range of works in the exhibition provided the opportunity for an installation of groupings by themes such as balance of life and death, simplicity in detail, and sublime beauty of the American Southwest near Santa Fe, New Mexico. Among these themes, this exhibition captured the spiritual beauty of the Southwest. Both nature and its environment are the focus of creative experimentation of composition, form, and the properties of light, color, and infinite space. Even the balance of nature in the desert inspired Georgia O’Keeffe to explore the New Mexico’s universal nature. This exhibition challenged the viewers to focus on the simplicity in O’Keeffe’s compositions as well as the bold colors and light in these artworks in a two-dimensional space.......

Furman V Georgia

...aimed to keep the previous ruling. The five judges that were for overturning the decision also were divided on why they were against it. Two of the five stated that the death penalty in itself was cruel and unusual. The ruling from Furman V. Georgia set a precedent for how administrating the death penalty could take place. Even though the Supreme Court ruled against the death penalty in certain cases many states tried to re-write their death penalty laws to bypass the court’s ruling. In 2008, a similar case was presented to the Supreme Court. Kennedy v. Louisiana was a case in which Kennedy was convicted of aggravated rape of his eight year old step daughter. A Louisiana statute allowed the upgrade to the death penalty for the aggravate rape of an individual under twelve. The state Supreme Court agreed with the ruling, however, the Supreme Court ruled against capital punishment for a crime that did not result, and was not intended to result in the death of the victim. The ruling stated that it would be considered cruel and unusual punishment and go against the defendant’s eighth amendment right. The ruling set the precedent that states may not impose the death penalty in crimes in which “the victim’s life was not taken.” Furman v. Georgia was a case and decision that came at a good time for America to improve as a country. The civil rights movement had ended and America was in the process of integration and acceptance of all people, no matter what skin color they were.......

...Running head: GEORGIA Georgia- The Peach state American Government December 7, 2011 The United States constitution is built upon the concept of federalism- the distribution of powers between a central authority and its constituent units. Georgia uses the federalist theory by distributing powers from its state government to the county government and from the county to the city government. Georgia is a historical state; being one of the original thirteen colonies founded in 1733. In 2010, Georgia was said to be the 9th largest state in the US with 9.69 million residents (Georgia USA, 2011, para. 1). Georgia like every other state is quite unique in its origin, development, and agriculture. The idea for creating a new colony was to serve as a military buffer between the British in South Carolina and the Spanish in Florida (Summers, 2011, para. 3). Prior to 1732 there were many attempts at settling on the land south of the Savannah River. Sir Robert Montgomery of Scotland-one of the many but not the first- “had secured from the Proprietors of Carolina a tract of land between the Savannah and Altamaha Rivers to which he gave the grandiloquent name, ‘Margravate of Azilia’ ” (Saye, 1948, p.3). Margravate an eastern European term meaning leader of lineage; Azilia is a Mesolithic European culture (“Margravate of Azilia”, 2011, para.4). (“Margravate of Azilia”, 2011, para. 9)Montgomery envisioned the colony inhabitants as those indentured from poorer English classes.......
