Dodie O'Keefe worked in many modes. She painted, designed, illustrated, made jewelry, enhanced textiles and more. Florida Craftsman had a show comprised mostly of work from private collectors. Here are photographs from that show:
Mexican motifs abound in O'Keefe's work. It is obvious she had steeped herself into the culture and its art. Here is a retablo that is about 8" high. It is a scene of merriment, with people playing music. I think of these retablos as portable altars, closed when not being observed or for carry.
Congratulations to Florida Craftsmen for an illuminating posthumous show of Dodie O'Keefe's work.
