Drawn by the beauty grandeur and complexity of American landscapes Ansel Adams and Clyde Butcher pay reverence to our natural world. These two exhibitions shown side by side pair these widely acclaimed photographers together to examine the power and fragility of nature.

Ansel Adams: The Masterworks
This exhibition includes 32 black and white gelatin silver prints spanning four decades of photography. The Masterworks showcases the skill and talent through which Ansel Adams captured the majesty of National Parks the unique peoples of New Mexico and the ever-changing landscapes of America. Masterworks contains some of Adams’ most well-known images such as Moonrise Hernandez New Mexico; Aspens Northern New Mexico; and Winter Sunrise The Sierra Nevada. This exhibition invites the viewer to see and feel how Adams experienced America: a place of vast natural wonder breathtaking beauty and worthy of environmental protection.

This is a traveling exhibition created by the Booth Western Art Museum.

Clyde Butcher: America the Beautiful
Clyde Butcher’s photographs reveal wild and natural places where few humans have ventured with images capturing remarkable solitude and wonder. His oversized dramatic images are a valued artistic expression of what we have and what we might lose if we do not protect our environment. Butcher grew up in California and later relocated to Florida finding peace and his life’s mission within the Everglades. Butcher is an ambassador to the arts and environment a diplomat of the remaining wild places and an emissary to the hearts and minds of Americans to protect our country’s natural places.
