A tour through their place and spaces.

You will discover Maria Martinez of San Ildefonso Pueblo and Margaret Tafoya, of Santa Clara Pueblo, among the founders of a reinvigorated pottery making dynamism; Mabel Dodge Lujan and Millicent Rogers, two heiresses from the East Coast and eccentric personalities; Georgia O’Keeffe whose paintings became the emblematic representation of New Mexico’s land, rocks and colors; Agnes Martin, an outstanding exponent of abstract expressionism, inspired by Taos to introduce light pastel colors to her grids and connections to spirituality.


With such a singular cast of famous names as these, New Mexico has moved from a frontier to a sophisticated society. The contributions and talents of these prominent front runners, among many others, have influenced society in numerous ways, from the arts, to literature, and science.


This journey takes you to where these women were each inspired by the unique landscapes of the northern tier of the state.


The program can be tailored to your personal interests by meeting contemporary artists or visits to galleries featuring works by women champions.


This is only a brief presentation with the highlights of this tour!

Days One-Two.

Church of San José de Gracia in Las TrampasIf you drive from neighboring states, you begin the tour in Taos where you join the group and transfer to your private van. If you fly into Albuquerque International Airport or land at Santa Fe Municipal airport (direct flights from Dallas and Los Angeles), you can take the shuttle to Santa Fe, where you will meet your guide to continue on your private transportation to Taos. Please make your flight arrangements in order to meet in Santa Fe by 2pm.

Taos is a charming frontier town among the most picturesque and oldest Native American and Hispanic villages in the state. The highlights include seeing the works of Agnes Martin, the museum and home of Millicent Rogers and Mabel Dodge Lujan who made Taos acultural destination, the shrine conceived by Frieda Lawrence for her husband, the writer D.H.Lawrence, and at the Taos Pueblo a celebrated contemporary Taos artist and other interesting people who can tell you about the traditional life in the pueblo. You will also be able to enjoy Taos for its mountainous backdrop and the beauty of its forests and the Rio Grande Gorge. Among Taos' attractions was an authentic spirit of independence, privacy, and creativity that lived outside of mainstream societal boundaries – and lives on today.

A culinary experience awaits you on your first night and on the second day you will enjoy a lunch at an historic restaurant. You will stay two nights at Casa Benavides Bed and Breakfast.
