The transformative works of women artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Gina Knee, Ila McAfee and Margaret Lefranc, each of whom went to New Mexico to continue their work are under the lense at Philbrook Downtown.
Some came west in search of sun-drenched scenery, dry climes during the age of tuberculosis, or expanded exhibition opportunities at the Museum of New Mexico, which opened in 1917. Other women followed their husbands out west, while rebels like O’Keeffe and her friend, Rebecca Salsbury James, escaped theirs.
Philbrook Downtown hours are noon-7 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday.
