Bob Kolbrener . . . Picturing the West
Lumière
Featuring work by: Bob Kolbrener

Exhibition: Wed, Jul 14, to Sat, Sep 25 2010

Photographs from four decades recording the majesty of the American West by Bob Kolbrener of Carmel, California. Complementing the remarkable Ansel Adams exhibition’s September opening at the Booth Museum of Western Art, in Cartersville, GA.

His subjects …from landscapes to portraits …from symbols of man encroaching on nature to humorous signage …are all carefully and thoughtfully executed. A show with Brett Weston in Los Angeles over 35 years ago launched his work. Since then, it has been exhibited throughout the United States as well as in Austria, China, Indonesia and Japan.

“Kolbrener stands apart because his photographs have a rare technical perfection—every print is ideal and masterful in light, tone, cropping and consistency.” - James D. Burke, Director, Saint Louis Art Museum

Peter Sekaer ... In Context
Lumière
Featuring work by: Peter Sekaer

Exhibition: Wed, Jul 14, to Sat, Oct 9 2010

Featuring the exceptional photography of Peter Sekaer in the context of other notable artists of the period.

Including: Berenice Abbott, Arnold Newman, Alexander Rodchenko, Dorothea Lange, John Gutmann and Rondal Partridge.

Sekaer, born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1901, immigrated to the United States in 1918. After successfully operating a printing business in New York City producing posters, advertisements and window displays, he enrolled in the Art Students League in 1929 to study painting.

By 1934 Sekaer had left painting behind to study photography with Berenice Abbott. Through his friendship with Walker Evans he secured contracts from 1936 to 1943 to work on assignment as a photographer for various government agencies.

“Sekaer’s photographs show an outsider’s objectivity and detachment coupled with an insider’s commitment and concern for the subject.” - Julian Cox, Curator of the High Museum of Art’s exhibition: Signs of Life, Photographs by Peter Sekaer.
