Exhibit – The Arizona History Museum Presents 'Artist on the Southwest Road' by Willard Page
Willard J. Page was born in 1885, and grew up on a small farm in northeastern Kansas. He had a love of art, drawing, and painting, and eventually became a gifted artist.
Page's travels through New Mexico inspired him to paint the adobe houses and the Southwest landscape. In Albuquerque, Page painted the traditional adobe houses, the Sandia Mountains and the volcanic peaks to the west. He sold his work at local galleries, Grimshaw's Ice Cream Parlor, and the train station.
The Arizona History Museum is hosting "Artist on the Southwest Road," a collection of paintings by Page, curated by Carolyn O'Bagy Davis.
