Although Georgia O'Keeffe is best-known for her oversized paintings of flowers, her 30-year relationship with photographer Alfred Stieglitz was more prickly than flowery.Their marriage -- thorns and all -- forms the plot of "Stieglitz Loves O'Keeffe," which opened last night at the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre.Thematically, Lanie Robertson's two-person play focuses on issues even more complex than its characters' contentious union. It seeks to illuminate the nature of creativity and of love, as well as the connection between them.

They couldn't have been more different. He was a talker who loved to surround himself with people and the hustle and bustle of the big city. She was a country girl who yearned for the solitude of wide open spaces. Their first conversation was an argument.Yet the 1924 marriage of photography pioneer Alfred Stieglitz and painter Georgia O'Keeffe lasted more than two decades and was one of the most creative unions in the annals of modern art.That fiery marriage is the subject of "Stieglitz Loves O'Keeffe: Flowers and Photos," a play starring Stacy Keach and Margot Kidder that begins a three-week run at the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre Tuesday.

John Murrell's play about Georgia O'Keeffe, "The Faraway Nearby," reinforces how difficult it is to convey, in theatrical terms, the fervor that an artist expresses with paint and canvas.At Washington's Arena Stage, even the visually arresting set, by acclaimed designer Ming Cho Lee, and the intense lighting, by Allen Lee Hughes, cannot adequately enliven Murrell's script.Arena's production isn't the first time area theatergoers have had a chance to see a play about O'Keeffe. In 1995, the Mechanic Theatre presented Lanie Robertson's "Stieglitz Loves O'Keeffe," which also suffered from a deficiency of drama (though to a somewhat lesser degree)

To look at Georgia O'Keeffe 81 times through the lens of Alfred Stieglitz is to watch someone you thought you knew slowly become an enigma.Gone is the flinty-looking, aged icon of the Southwest, our image of O'Keeffe for decades before her death in 1986. In its place, Stieglitz gives us a much younger O'Keeffe, in photographs taken between 1917 and 1937. More important, the O'Keeffe he presents is not a single entity, but a prismatic, multifaceted presence.The 81 photographs are presented as a single work of art. Called "Georgia O'Keeffe: A Portrait by Alfred Stieglitz," it is on view at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.It stands as one of the most unusual portraits in all of art history, and more besides: It is also a drama of human emotion as revealed by the human body, a record of one of the century's great love affairs, a set of variations on early 20th-century modernism, and a successful collaboration by two of the era's most famous artists.

Kevin O'Keeffe, a senior aide to Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens, resigned last week and said he is considering a run for the 3rd Congressional District seat - an office that Owens might pursue. He "has resigned to run for the congressional seat" next year, Owens said yesterday of O'Keeffe, one of her closest political advisers. "I've always told Kevin that he couldn't wait for me," Owens said. "He felt like he had to go through with this." Owens is barred by term limits from running for a third term as county executive next year.

Nothing is less real than realism," Georgia O'Keeffe once said. "Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis that we get at the real meaning of things."

The image of Georgia O'Keeffe's strong, supple and expressive hands appears and reappears like the motif of a dance suite in the photography of Alfred Stieglitz. A master photographer and a catalyst for modern art early in the 20th century, Stieglitz made his first pictures of O'Keeffe when he exhibited her early abstract charcoal drawings in 1916 in his Photo-Secession Gallery at its famous lower Manhattan address, 291 Fifth Ave. He made hundreds more during their long life together.

We're at 2113 W. Pratt St., east of downtown Baltimore, with Kevin O'Keeffe, a candidate for Congress from Maryland's 3rd District. There's an open seat in the 3rd, attracting a diverse field of strong candidates. Candidate O'Keeffe is wondering if anyone's noticed. Of 200,000 eligible Democratic voters, he calculates, as few as 60,000 might turn out Sept. 12, primary election day. That would be well below 50 percent. "Let's see what happens," he says, ringing the front-door bell. The muffled barking of a dog is what's happening.

No single candidate has emerged as a fundraising front-runner to weed out the large field running for Maryland's only open congressional seat, suggesting that the crowded race will remain competitive, campaign finance reports filed yesterday show. Seven Democratic candidates are running to replace Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin in the sprawling 3rd Congressional District -- which includes portions of the city and Anne Arundel, Baltimore and Howard counties -- and at least four of them have equally hefty campaign funds, according to the reports.

The Old Mill wrestling team took a big step toward repeating as Anne Arundel's dual meet champion last night at Chesapeake, coming away with a feisty 39-28 win over the Cougars, thanks in large part to the middle part of its balanced lineup. Consecutive pins from Nic Box (140), Mario Burkett (145) and Chris Volker (152) started a trend for the Patriots, who got later pins from Josh Marshall (189), heavyweight Keith Jones and Greg Saumenig (103) while the Cougars mostly settled on decisions.

ELECTIONS usually produce two types of challengers. There are those who say they can do the same job the incumbent is doing, only better. And then there are those who say the real problem is that the incumbent is doing the wrong job, and that their goal is to redefine the office.There are plenty of examples of the former type in the upcoming City Council elections. But GlennMcNattthoughtful exponents of the latter approach are relatively rare. Two of the most interesting such challengers this year are Peter Beilenson from the 2nd District, and Kevin O'Keeffe from the 3rd.Both are relatively young, professionally trained -- Beilenson is a physician, O'Keeffe a lawyer -- and Democrats.

WASHINGTON -- If you've ever hung a camera around your neck and gone in search of interesting motifs in nature, you've followed in the footsteps of Edward Weston (1886-1958). One of the great pioneering American art photographers of the second quarter of the 20th century, he created those sensuously sculptural close-ups of peppers, nautilus shells and nudes that have become paradigms of 20th-century photographic art. You may not have used a fancy view camera with large negatives, and probably didn't get such silky, sexy results, but you had the general idea.
