The International Trip Committee of the Volunteer Board at the University of Virginia Art Museum will host a special event focused on the art of Santa Fe on Sunday, Feb. 9, 2 p.m. in the museum. The public is invited.

Three acclaimed speakers will celebrate, discuss and take an inside look at the art and culture of Santa Fe, N.M., in conjunction with a museum members’ trip to Santa Fe, May 10-14. All three are acquainted with the special ambience of this part of the American Southwest.

Internationally acclaimed National Geographic photographer and teacher Sam Abell, whose work was featured in the museum’s blockbuster exhibition, “Sam Abell: The Photographic Life,” will show images of Santa Fe and provide personal reflections of his experiences there. Abell is director of the Center for Photographic Projects in Santa Fe and has been teaching at the Santa Fe Photography and Digital Workshops for 14 years.

Celebrated scholar Marjorie Balge-Crozier will present information and images of the life, art and home of legendary artist Georgia O’Keeffe. Balge-Crozier contributed a major essay to the recent Phillips Collection catalog/exhibition, “Georgia O’Keeffe: The Poetry of Things.” She is currently serving as a guest curator and writer for the exhibition, “Georgia O’Keeffe and the Landscape Tradition,” scheduled to open in fall 2004 at the University of Michigan.

Julia Stephens May, associate curator of the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia, will discuss how the history, traditions and culture of Santa Fe’s native peoples relate to the architecture, rock art, painting and contemporary ceramics produced there.

A reception catered by the Hospitality Committee of the Volunteer Board will follow in the museum.
