Sight and Feeling: Photographs by Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams’ ability to create photographs with a remarkable range and subtlety of tones is legendary. Yet for all his technical mastery, Adams recognized that what made a compelling photograph was far more elusive. This exhibition of Adams’ photographs, from the collection of the Kalamazoo Institute of the Arts, Kalamazoo, Michigan, suggests how his intuitive and emotional response to the landscape resulted in powerful and enduring photographs.


November 19, 2016 – March 5, 2017

Long Island Collects: Photography

Long Island Collects: Photography seeks to focus on significant photographic works created from the 1960s through the present day. Historically, photography has been used as a documentary medium to tell a story. Using the malleable medium of the photographer, artists have often enhanced or staged their works to convey a story, create emotion, or otherwise touch the viewer in a significant manner. This exhibition presents a survey of photographic works from private collectors. Among the artists included in Long Island Collects: Photography are John Baldessari, Matthew Barney, Robert Mapplethorpe, Vic Muniz, Cindy Sherman and William Wegman, among many others.
