Booth Museum has acknowledged the growth and importance of photography as a fine art medium with a new permanent photography gallery, Picturing America. In conjunction with the gallery opening, Ansel Adams: The Masterworks showcases 30 photographs from an edition known as The Museum Set – images hand selected, printed, and signed by Adams himself. Exhibited together for the first time ever, these images are loaned from the personal collection of Virginia Adams Mayhew, Ansel’s granddaughter.
Through August 20 – Borderlands Gallery
For an artist, continuing education is vital. Booth Western Art Museum is honored to offer such opportunities through artist presentations, exhibitions and demonstrations. For the fifth consecutive year, Booth Museum is excited to exhibit the work of members from the Booth Artists’ Guild (BAG). Membership in BAG has grown to over 150 members from across the nation. Each year, BAG members are encouraged to submit their work to Booth Museum for the annual juried exhibition.
