O'Keeffe's Casas

July 9, 2013, 12:00 am
Georgia O’Keeffe moved to New Mexico in ‘49.

Since then, she’s become synonymous with Santa Fe—so much so that she’s got a couple of museums in her name, a few gift shops and two houses. Barbara Buhler Lynes and Agapita Judy Lopez are totally into O’K’s adobe abodes, so they wrote a book about them.

As part of the Abiquiu Lecture Series, Lopez discusses the artist, delving into the über-personal (extracts from letters and so forth). She also explores how O’Keeffe’s environment impacted her art. Her two houses, one at Ghost Ranch (for the summers) and the other in Abiquiu (winters), offered refuge for the somewhat reclusive artist.

Lo and behold, the mother of American modernism, that lotus-loving, Southwest transplant (from a small town in Wisconsin): Georgia O’Keeffe.

Abiqui Lecture Series:
7 pm Thursday, July 11. Free (RSVP required)
Abiquiu Inn, 21120 Hwy. 84, 685-4378
