About The Abiquiú Studio Tour
Inhabited for centuries by Native Americans before and after the Spanish settled here in 1692, Abiquiú village is well-known internationally as the home of the renowned painter Georgia O'Keefe who made it her permanent home. A destination for visitors who come to tour her house in the village and visit nearby Ghost Ranch where she had a studio, the dramatic landscape that inspired her artistry has continued to attract a steadily growing community of traditional and contemporary artists.
On view will be a veritable timeline of arts and traditional crafts from the signature micaceous clay artworks of the region and Native American and Hispanic-inspired pottery, retablos, santos and furniture to contemporary paintings, sculpture, narrative and Southwestern works, photographs, jewelry, glass, ceramics, textiles, and wearable art.
