Women and Art of the West

At the core of Western art are the stories that artists create about life and culture in the American West. Women are a vital part of the regional narrative, whether they were women from Native tribes, Canary Islanders looking to elevate their social standing in New Spain, missionaries who worked to spread Christianity, Chinese who worked alongside their husbands in a new country, or numerous other women whose strength and vision are at the heart of Western culture.  These works are a combination of images about, and by, women.  Their work and unique perspectives tell stories of determined women whose work has expanded the field of Western American art.

This month, artist Gladys Roldan-de-Moras and Education & Programs Manager Rebecca González-López will discuss the significant contributions of women in the West in the newly renovated Ruth McLean Bowman Bowers: Women of the West Gallery.

This program is supported by the City of San Antonio Department of Arts and Culture. Included with museum admission.
