DALLAS (AP) - The Santa Fe-based Georgia O’Keeffe Museum has opened its first regional office in Dallas as it expands fundraising efforts.

The Dallas Morning News reports (https://bit.ly/1lj4JVH) the new office is directed by Betty Brownlee, a patron of Southwestern art who has a long history in fundraising.

She says O’Keeffe’s connections to Texas made Dallas a logical place to put the museum’s first regional office.

Before moving to New Mexico, O’Keeffe, inspired by West Texas’ big skies and prairies, painted in the Panhandle. Many of those pieces include images of Palo Duro Canyon. O’Keeffe also taught at Amarillo public schools and at a West Texas college.

Brownlee has previously worked for the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Society and helped raise $62 million for a new children’s garden.
