Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM CDT
Spring exhibitions at the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts will open on Saturday, February 4 and continue through May 13, 2023.
?America?s Western Landscape,? is a new exhibition by photographer Mark Burns that will be unveiled for the first time at the Pearl. The exhibit celebrates the raw beauty, vistas, and natural diversity of the American West. In many ways it represents the ?best of the best? of Burns? landscape work, with 50 pieces selected by the artist including black and white photographs, color photographs, and hand-colorized black and white photographs. ?America?s Western Landscape? will be featured in the Main Gallery and includes an optional audio guide accessible by smartphones.
In the Cole Gallery, the Pearl will feature ?Hidden Beauty in the Ordinary,? with a dozen works by artist Lindy Chambers. Chambers paints rural scenes of life in the Texas countryside where she lives. By simply paying attention, she observes often overlooked aspects of life to discover beauty in mobile homes, stray dogs, and piles of trash. Her paintings are vibrant compositions of color that never use the same hue twice. Her insistence on variety furthers the idea that everything contains its own unique beauty, if you only stop to notice.
Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and admission is free. For more information, please visit www.pearlmfa.org or call (281) 376-6322.
