Members’ Opening: The Western Sublime and Harry Brorby

October 18, 2019 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

TMA members are invited to celebrate the opening of The Western Sublime: Majestic Landscapes of the American West and Harry Brorby: The strength of a cold line. Meet other TMA members, enjoy a glass of wine, and experience these new exhibitions.

The Western Sublime: Majestic Landscapes of the American West examines works of art of the American West that interpret, reinvent, challenge and transform the idea of the sublime: an aesthetic ideal with an emotional or spiritual charge that instills awe or inspires fear. In a range of art from the mid-1800s to today, this exhibition includes paintings, drawings, photography, prints, textiles, and basketry that consider ways that the sublime landscape is understood and its effect on the peoples, histories, and cultures of the American West in the past and present.

Harry Brorby: The strength of a cold line. is an exhibition that focuses on four decades of the extraordinary artist’s early career from the 1940s to 1970s. During this period, Brorby explored various media including painting, printmaking, and sculpture while dancing between figurative and abstract concepts.

This event is open to all TMA members. To become a member or to learn about upgrading your existing membership, please contact the membership department.
