Ladies of the Canyons Exhibit - Ghost Ranch Education & Retreat Center
Posted Oct 17, 2016
The Museums at Ghost Ranch "Ladies of the Canyons" Exhibit
October 22, 2016 to October 21, 2017
Ladies of the Canyons exhibit is based on Lesley Poling-Kempes’ book of the same name (Winner of 2016 WILLA Award and 2015 Reading the West Nonfiction Award) that tells the true stories of remarkable women from the East Coast, among them Ghost Ranch founder Carol Bishop Stanley. She, along with a handful of other pioneering women, left the security and comforts of Victorian society and journeyed into the rugged terrain of the American Southwest in search of discovering individual potential within the rapidly changing world of the early 1900’s.
As part of an influential circle of women that included Natalie Curtis, Louisa Wade Wetherill, Alice Corbin Henderson, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Mary Austin, and Willa Cather, these ladies made history as artists, authors, businesswomen, and advocates, breaking ground for the women who would follow in their footsteps.
With a focus on Carol Stanley and Natalie Curtis the Ladies of the Canyons museum exhibit chronicles the pluck and tenacity of these women with a collection of artifacts of the day, including clothing, photographs, diaries, riding tack, camping gear, books, music, furniture, furnishings and other pieces of the era 1900-1930.
Visit this exhibit at historic Ghost Ranch for a compelling adventure that shaped Northern New Mexico and Ghost Ranch as we know it today.
