VAST: Sea Salt Sand Sky―Photographs by Joni Sternbach

November 21, 2017 - April 24, 2018
Rubin Gallery

Women rarely go into the landscape with a large-format camera using both film and a 19th-century process called "wet collodion." But, for the past 20 years, Joni Sternbach has done so. Her photographs capture the vast, similar and sublime terrains of the desert and the ocean―and surfers who ride the waves as meditation.

The Prints of Jacob Lawrence

February 13 - August 19, 2018
Gladys Gracy Harn Exhibition Hall

This exhibition provides a comprehensive overview of influential American artist Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000). Lawrence was primarily concerned with the narration of African American experiences and histories. His acute observations of community life, work, struggle and emancipation during his lifetime were rendered alongside vividly imagined chronicles of the past. The past and present in his work are intrinsically linked, providing insight into the social, economic and political; realities that continue to impact and shape contemporary society today.
