The Granite Sculpture of Candyce Garrett

September 27, 2015 – January 17, 2016

Organized by the Tyler Museum of Art, The Granite Sculpture of Candyce Garrett spotlights more than 20 of her recent smaller-scale pieces. Often abstract in design but conveying simple, relatable themes, her granite work draws much of its inspiration from the rustic, expansive landscapes of the desert Southwest.

To complement this exhibition, the Museum and Tyler Junior College have collaborated to present Rock Walk. This outdoor installation features Garrett’s large-scale stone sculptures placed at strategic locations on the TMA’s lawn and throughout the TJC main campus.

This exhibition is made possible through the generosity of the Julietta Jarvis Foundation, Inc.

Ansel Adams: Early Works

October 11, 2015 – January 3, 2016

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) – photographer, musician, naturalist, explorer, critic and teacher – was a giant in the field of landscape photography. His iconic work represents the end of a movement in American art concerned with capturing the beauty of the pristine Western landscape. Yet most audiences only are familiar with the heroic, high-contrast prints on high-gloss paper stock from the 1970s and ’80s.

This exhibition, drawn from the private collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg, focuses on the masterful small-scale prints Adams made from the 1920s into the 1950s. Ansel Adams: Early Works guides the viewer through an evolution of printing styles that complement the scenic grandeur of his natural subjects – revealing Adams as a true "poet of light," both in the field and in the darkroom.

This exhibition was organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions, LLC.
