My Relationship with Ghost Ranch: A Topophilia Case Study with Jill Cowley

 
Join us to hear Jill Cowley talk about her relationship with the Ghost Ranch landscape, in the context of theory related to love of place. Her relationship with the landscape developed qualities of familiarity, meaning, inspiration, and emotional associations – qualities that characterize our love for places, or Topophilia. 
 
As a National Park Service Cultural Landscapes Specialist for 30 years, Jill was a member of a team who studied how Georgia O'Keeffe's contribution to American art could be celebrated at Ghost Ranch and other northern New Mexico landscapes, and later served as a consultant to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. Jill is also a watercolor artist who has exhibited paintings that express her love of the Ghost Ranch and other Southwest landscapes. 

Please join us for this interesting luncheon presentation.

Time: 12:00 sign-in and refreshments, 12:30 lunch, 1:10 speaker. (Men welcome to attend the program at 1:10.)

Place: UU Santa Fe Fogelson (sanctuary)

Cost:  Members $8, Nonmembers $10 (membership $25)

Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation

The Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation (UUWF) is affiliated with the national UUWF organization that advances justice for women and promotes their spiritual growth. UUWF is an independent non-profit, 501 (c) (3) associate member organization of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The Santa Fe chapter is a part of this national organization and an affiliate organization of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Santa Fe (UUCSF).

Our UUWF in Santa Fe is one of the largest and most active groups in the country. Six of our members have received the Clara Barton award from UUWF national. We have over 60 members, with many others being on our mailing list. Members do not have to be members of UU Santa Fe. UUWF membership is $25 a year, paid in the fall.

We have nine luncheons each year – one a month from September through May on the third Saturday. We have a weekend retreat in early June. Also, we have recently enjoyed two organized trips – one to Ajijic Mexico and another to the Bosque del Apache in Socorro.

We pride ourselves on being THE PLACE to get to know other women if you are new to UU Santa Fe or to the city of Santa Fe. Our informal and friendly luncheons are preceded by a social time. Members volunteer during the year to help with one luncheon. Each luncheon has a program given by an interesting Santa Fean, including some of our own members. The luncheon cost is $8 for members and $10 for nonmembers.

The proceeds from the luncheons, and the majority of the money from dues, are distributed in the spring to local charities that benefit women and children in the Santa Fe area.
