PSNWA Fine Art division will travel to Little Rock to see an exhbit of Ansel Adams photographs and another exhibit of Arkansas photographer William Davis photographs. All PSNWA members are invitied to attend. We will meet at Walmart off of MLK in south Fayetteville at 8am.
This exhibition of 41 original prints focuses on the masterful small-scale images made by Ansel Adams from the 1920s into the 1950s. Already in this time period there is quite an evolution of printing style, from the soft-focus, warm-toned, painterly “Parmelian prints” of the 1920s; through the f/64 school of sharp-focused photography that he co-founded with Edward Weston and Imogen Cunningham in the 1930s; and, after the War, towards a cooler, higher-contrast printmaking style. Throughout, Adams is revealed as a poet of light, both in the field and in the darkroom. – See more at:https://
The exhibition Seeing the Essence: Photographs by William E. Davis celebrates this great Arkansas photographer’s generous bequest of more than 700 of his original photographic prints to the Arkansas Arts Center. The exhibition features twenty-five large black and white photographic prints made by Davis, revealing his special gifts for choosing distinctive subjects and looking at them as no one else would. This acquisition is a major addition to the Arts Center’s already strong collection of work by Arkansas photographers. – See more at: https://
