Etherton Gallery presents its summer exhibition, Masters of American Photography (June 11, 2011 – August 27, 2011). The show opens with a reception Saturday, June 11, 2011, 7-10pm.
The exhibition, which celebrates Etherton Gallery’s 30th Anniversary, features a selection of photographs recently acquired from important private collections by the great practitioners of American photography: including Ansel Adams, Richard Misrach, Ruth Bernhard and Frank A. Rinehart, and works culled from the gallery’s extensive holdings.
The exhibition articulates the breadth of Etherton Gallery’s distinctly classical American aesthetic with a few twists and turns, developed over the last 30 years. Highlights of the show include rare vintage prints from the Night Desert series (c. 1975-77) by Richard Misrach; El Capitan, Sunrise, Winter, Yosemite National Park, California (1968) by Ansel Adams; Ruth Bernhard’s sensuous nude, In the Box, Horizontal (1962); Joel Peter Witkin’s s beautiful portrait, La Giovanissima (2007); a vintage print of Helmut Newton’s In My Apartment, Paris (1978); and a rare image of Chief Joseph – Nez Perces (1879) by Frank A.
