This week’s featured image celebrates the work of third-generation painter Margarete Bagshaw, who walked on March 19 in Santa Fe at the age of 50. She was the third generation of female painters in her family; Helen Hardin was her mother, and her grandmother was groundbreaking Santa Clara Pueblo artist Pablita Velarda, who was among the first Pueblo women to paint and make a career as an artist when the field was dominated by men.

Art by all three women are exhibited at the Golden Dawn Gallery in Santa Fe, opened by Bagshaw in 2009.

This image was featured in this week’s Indian Country Today Media Network newsletter.

Any details about how or why Ms. Bagshaw walked on? It only concerns me because she's a fellow New Mexican and she younger than me by 12 years.
