Georgia O’Keeffe Museum

Like so many before me, my love affair with New Mexico was kindled by Georgia O’Keeffe’s life and art. For three decades the pull has endured. Today O’Keeffe remains central to my appreciation, and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum ( which was completed a year and a half after I first moved to Santa Fe from Washington, DC continues to provide insightful, well curated exhibitions into the world of this transformative artist and those influencing (and influenced by) her.

The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, opened to the public in July 1997, eleven years after the death of the artist from whom it takes its name. Welcoming more than 2,225,000 visitors from all over the world and being the most visited art museum in the state of New Mexico, it is the only museum in the world dedicated to an internationally known American woman artist. (

The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum is the largest collection of O’Keeffe’s work numbering over 3,000 works, including her paintings, drawings, and sculptures. The exhibition of this collection varies throughout the year, so that visitor’s may always encounter something different. The museum also offers exhibits from other artists—her contemporaries and also living artists of distinction.

Another component was added to the museum in 2001 when The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Research Center opened.

As the only museum-related research facility in the world dedicated to the study of American Modernism (late nineteenth century – present), it sponsors research in the fields of art history, architectural history and design, literature, music and photography. (

Your Pied-a-terre in Santa Fe

Pre 2014 Master Bedroom at Adobe Oasis in Santa Fe.

Pre 2014 Master Bedroom at Adobe Oasis in Santa Fe.

A dream pied-a-terre in Santa Fe at last! Many months of searching for the ideal Santa Fe pied-a-terre finally yielded the spot we’ve fantasized about for so long, and we’ve named it Adobe Oasis. Or maybe it named itself! This handsome home is a high desert sanctuary as soothing as it is welcoming.

That’s last week’s good news. But it’s not the best news. I wanted to save that for today…

Adobe Oasis is Your Pied-a-terre in Santa Fe

Because we live and work far, far away from Santa Fe we are only able to enjoy the Adobe Oasis intermittently. But don’t feel sorry for us. Feel fortunate for yourself, because our absence is your opportunity to savor the Santa Fe lifestyle as a local.
