MVS to Phoenix next week: visiting exhibitions, attending lectures, and consultations with artists

I’m looking forward to heading up to Phoenix for a few days next week to do a number of things.

I encourage you to attend curator Rebecca Senf’s lecture next Wednesday night at the Phoenix Art Museum:

Edward Steichen. Three Pears and an Apple. 1910. The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gift of the photographer, 1964 (368.1964). Digital Image ©The Museum of Modern Art/Licensed by SCALA/Art Resource, NY. Reprinted with permission of Joanna T. Steichen.
Cézanne and Modern Photography

August 4, 7pm

“Paul Cézanne’s influence on painting is obvious, but what about his effect on photography? From Edward Steichen’s still lifes of fruit to Alfred Stieglitz’s portraits of bathers, Norton Family Curator of Photography Rebecca Senf, Ph.D., discusses how early American photography reflects Cézanne’s infamous subject matter, composition and style.”

This lecture is being held in conjunction with the exhibition “Cezanne and American Modernism” which continues through September 26th at PAM.

Also on view at PAM: I am looking forward to seeing the new newly installed exhibition “Creative Continuum: The History of the Center for Creative Photography” (through November 28th).

Heading west to Scottsdale I can’t wait to see the new exhibition at Lisa Sette Gallery:

From the Ground Up - a summer group exhibition dealing with themes of the environment and the natural world.

Featuring the work of Kim Cridler, Binh Danh, Lalla Essaydi, Valerie Hammond, Rick Hards, Alan Bur Johnson, Jessica Joslin, Mark Klett, Mayme Kratz, Chema Madoz, Carrie Marill, Matthew Moore, Beverly Penn, Mike & Doug Starn and Jo Whaley.

And last but not least, a second visit to Scottsdale SMoCA to view “Re-imagining the West” which will close August 22nd.


During this trip I will have time to accept a limited number of private consultations; if interested please visit my website to learn more about these offerings.
