The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe will present “Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico: Architecture, Katsinam, and the Land” opening on May 17th. The show features previously unseen works depicting cultural materials, specifically paintings of Katsina from the Southwest Native American tribes. O’Keeffe found inspiration in the enchanting landscapes of New Mexico as well as the authentic objects and architecture of her environment. The small number of works on this subject matter are certainly treasures for their unique perspective.
In support of the homecoming for this traveling exhibition, Shiprock Santa Fe will be hosting our own gallery show “From the Mesas” with period examples from the Hopi Pueblos. Our items are the types of objects that O’Keeffe experienced firsthand, including Katsina and pottery. We will also feature incredible jewelry from the Hopi master Charles Loloma in the exhibition.
Please join us in celebrating the work of renowned American Modernist Georgia O’Keeffe! Shiprock Santa Fe special selections will be available May 17th in the gallery and online starting Monday, May 20th! Take a look at the museum exhibition page here for a full description of the show.
