The American West of the early 20th-century is often cast as a male-dominated region full of violence and conquest. However, the work of Maria Martinez and Laura Gilpin, showcased in this new exhibit at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, show that female and artistic voices were strong in the region. Martinez’s pottery is world-famous for its amazing depiction of Pueblo culture. Gilpin’s photography, through a variety of techniques, depicts the Southwest and its people like few other works of art ever have.
