Ansel Adams: Later Works from the Collection of Robert and Jane Lewit

This exhibition features seven gelatin silver photographs by Ansel Adams on loan from the collection of Robert and Jane Lewit. The photographs were printed ca. 1976-1977 from earlier negatives. The exhibit includes Adams's iconic images "Pine Forest in Snow, Yosemite" (ca. 1932), "Sierra Nevada Winter from Owens Valley" (ca. 1944), and "Redwoods, Bull Creek Flat, Northern California" (ca. 1960). These enlarged, high-contrast photographs printed on glossy paper stock exemplify Adams's late printing style.

Emerging from the Shadows: Edward Hopper and his Contemporaries

Edward Hopper (1882-1967) engaged in the aesthetic of shadows and their primacy in representation. Hopper's use of shadows is a signature motif of his work and an integral part of its power to enthrall viewers, emphasizing the sense of alienation, anonymity, and isolation of the human condition. The exhibition will feature approximately twenty-five works on paper by ten artists, primarily etchings on loan from museums, private collections, and selected from The Hyde’s permanent collection.

For the past fifteen years, Kagan has been engaged with the process of creating a hybrid form of sculpture that combines the solid component of a steel wire sculpture and the specific shadow it casts on the wall in a way that challenges expectations.
