Ansel Adams’s breathtaking black-and-white photographs have become synonymous with the American wilderness. His best-known works express his experience in the heroic landscapes of the West: granite peaks rise triumphantly, light illuminates distant mountain ranges, rivers coil through vast expanses, and clouds swirl over the plains. Ansel Adams: A Photographer’s Evolution traces the photographer’s path to his signature style, beginning with rare early works and ending with prints Adams made late in life. In his earliest photographs, made in the 1920s, Adams embraced the prevailing Pictorialist style with intimately sized, soft-focused images. He shifted to sweeping, sharply focused views in the 1930s and ‘40s and to larger images with dramatic contrast after World War II. The exhibition concludes with a selection of late prints Adams made from earlier negatives that he considered some of his greatest works. Through iconic views and lesser-known subjects, Ansel Adams: A Photographer’s Evolution reveals Adams as a poet of light both in the field and in the darkroom.
Ansel Adams: A Photographer’s Evolution is organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions, LLC, and the Taft Museum of Art. The exhibition features 42 photographs from the private collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg, and 10 additional works selected from other collections, both public and private.
A series of photographic, gouache, and crayon studies of the worker murals created by German-born American artist and designer Winold Reiss for Union Terminal in the 1930s will be presented by the Weston Art Gallery in collaboration with Cincinnati Museum Center.
Inspired by the monumental mosaic “Worker Murals” created by Winold Reiss for Cincinnati’s Union Terminal opening in 1933, Matt Lynch (Cincinnati, OH) and Curtis Goldstein (Columbus, OH) combined their respective backgrounds in alternative applications for industrial materials and collage and mural painting to create Work/Surface, a suite of laser-cut Formica high-pressure laminate mosaics.
Brett Weston was a master of black-and-white photography who used his camera to capture increasingly-abstract forms in the world around him.
Returning to the Weston for his second solo exhibition, Tom Bacher (Cincinnati, OH) continues his exploration of large-scale paintings depicting city, landscape, and abstract imagery through his mastery of phosphorescent pigments combined with acrylic medium.
