The Dynamic American West:

Highlights from the Haub Family Collection

Through Jan. 28, 2018

Drawing from TAM’s Haub Family Collection, this exhibition will look at the dynamic forces – both people and land – that shaped the American West. From the rowdy cowboys and unruly outlaws to the arid deserts and jagged peaks, the American West is rife with legends of its wild side. The artists in this exhibition showcase active scenes of people living extraordinary lives alongside images of rugged and romanticized terrain of the vibrant West.

Art of Framing

The Art of American Framing

Through Jan. 28, 2018

Have you ever noticed what a difference a frame can make in how you see an artwork? Since the Renaissance, framing has been an artform in itself. Carved, painted, and gilded frames can not only enhance a painting but also reflect the tastes of their time. This exhibition looks in depth at a selection of American frames from the 19th and early 20th centuries, illustrating key trends and changes which are reflected in the frames on the American still-life paintings in the galleries nearby.
