During her 40-year career as a painter, Woolworth has garnered a global following of collectors, earned numerous awards and grants, and spent many years creating and conducting workshops in the South of France. Woolworth’s oils and gouache merge toward the abstract figurative and are created with a palette that soothes the eye and spirit while contributing to an overall feeling of harmony and warmth within the viewer.
My paintings attempt to capture an intense moment in time that rings absolutely true. A scene, a certain light, colors arranged that pierce through one’s center to extract an emotion. A search for beauty in the familiar, unseen until revealed by the work.
- Carol Tippit Woolworth
THIS SHOW WILL RUN FROM MAY 19th - JUNE 19th

“The paintings for this Show arose from my sketchbook and swift drawings that appear as I observe this captivating world. I think in terms of vignettes, in the literary sense. My works are like short stories or poems. They talk about beings with hearts and souls and attempt to express the spiritual unity of all forms of life. I look for images in elements that I’ve seen, felt, or wondered about. I strive for a healing quality and a sense of rightness with the world. My work has been to discover my own true way of speaking with images. Because I am so fond of drawing living beings, my art is not purely abstract. I love the relationships of elegant beautiful colors and rounded simplified form.” Zima lives south of Santa Fe, New Mexico, with her partner Tom, her beloved horses, dogs, cats and lots of wide-open views.
Bernice Ende is the Lady Long Rider. Since her first long ride at age 51 in 2005 from Montana to New Mexico, Ende has logged more than 29,000 miles in the saddle, crisscrossing North America on horseback—alone. More than once she has traversed the Great Plains, the Southwest deserts, the Cascade Range and the Rocky Mountains. From 2014 to 2016, she was the first person to ride coast to coast and back again in one trek. Lady Long Rider: Alone Across North America on Horseback chronicles Ende’s travels, the friendly people she meets along the way, and her ongoing encounters with rough weather, wildlife, hard work, mosquitoes, tricky route finding, and the occasional worn out horseshoe. Ende reveals her inner struggles and triumphs—testing the limits of physical and mental stamina, coping with inescapable solitude, and the rewards of living life her own way, as she says, “in her own skin.” Along the way, she discovers a sense of community and love of place that unite people wherever they live.
Hat Ranch Gallery is pleased to present an intimate holiday evening with Bernice Ende reading from her book and signing books. Join us at The Gallery for some Holiday Cheer and inspiration!

A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.
Since it’s inception in the 17th century, women (salonnières) had powerful influence over the salon. Women were the center of life in the salon and carried very important roles as regulators. They could select their guests and decide the subjects of their meetings. These subjects could be social, literary, or political topics of the time. They also served as mediators by directing the discussion. They were intelligent, self-educated, and educated women reshaped the salon to their own social intellectual, and educational needs.
