SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) Georgia O'Keeffe Museum's director is stepping down.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the board of trustees of the Santa Fe museum announced this week that Robert Kret will be leaving at the end of January.

Kret said in a statement he wanted to turn his attention to pursuing professional opportunities that would bring he and his wife closer to family.

Kret took over the directorship of the O'Keeffe Museum in 2009 from George King. Under Kret's leadership, the museum organized three international traveling exhibits, saw growth in its endowment and established an acquisitions fund to grow the collection, which now houses more than 3,000 works.

A major figure in the American Modernist movement, O'Keeffe became inspired by the state after her first visit in 1929. She eventually made northern New Mexico her permanent home in 1949.
