Event Description

Margaret Moore Booker will introduce and discuss her latest book, Southwest Art Defined: An Illustrated Guide, in which the traditional arts of the Southwest are brought together in one volume for the first time. Full-color photographs of art accompany comprehensive descriptions of Native American and Hispaño art from museums, galleries, and private collections. Artists include: Felipe Ortega (New Mexico potter); Nicolas Otero (New Mexico santero); Melvin Sandoval (San Felipe/Zuni fetish carver); Racheal Roybal-Montoya (New Mexico filigree-jewelry maker).

Margaret Moore Booker is the award-winning author of several books and numerous articles on art, decorative arts, architecture, and history. She wrote The Santa Fe House: Historic Residences, Enchanting Adobes, and Romantic Revivals, which was chosen “best art book” of 2010 by the New Mexico Book Co-op and winner of the Historical Society of New Mexico’s 2010 Twitchell Award for “significant contribution to history.” A resident of Santa Fe since 2004, she divides her time between writing projects and freelance indexing/editorial work, with a focus on the art, architecture, decorative arts, and history of the Southwest. Also by Moore Booker are Sea Captains’ Houses and Rose-Covered Cottages: The Architectural Heritage of Nantucket Island, and Nantucket Spirit: The Art and Life of Elizabeth R. Coffin.
