Thanks to the support of a record number of Point Rider sponsors (61), our 2020 For the Love of Art Gala was one of our best, raising a near-record amount of funds for the Museum. We also had a record amount of fun as you can see by the picture(s) below. So what’s next? We have our 17th Annual Southeastern Chuck Wagon Gathering coming up at the end of March. This event will also include the official opening of The Jackson Hole 5 exhibition and our annual Chuck Wagon Invitational. A little later, we will be hosting a show and sale for the American Women Artists (AWA). The AWA show will overlap The Jackson Hole 5 exhibition for a few weeks. The timing of both of these exhibits is appropriate, as we are in the midst of celebrating the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote in America and the 150th anniversary of women being able to vote in Wyoming, which was way ahead of the curve back in 1870. Through exhibitions like these and our ongoing programs, we take up the challenge to live up to the reputation of being the top art museum in the United States, so be on the lookout for more great events and exhibitions coming this summer. I look forward to seeing you in our galleries soon!

With the recent opening of Robert Glenn Ketchum & Eliot Porter: On Seeing Color in the Picturing America Gallery, it seems like an opportune moment to review the progress The Booth has made in building a photography collection and exhibition schedule. On Seeing Color highlights the vibrant color photographs of two masters of color printing, drawn from the Collection of Judith and Peter M. Wach, Wach Gallery, Avon Lake, Ohio, and the Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, Texas. Also featured are recently donated works by Ketchum that are now part of The Booth’s permanent collection. The Picturing America Gallery officially opened on April 8, 2017, showcasing Ansel Adams: The Masterworks. On December 1, 2018, the gallery expanded to its current size for the opening of Bob Kolbrener: 50 Years in the West. In just under two years, The Booth has increased its permanent collection of photographs by approximately 300% and continues to mount several photography exhibitions per year. The permanent collection ranges from historical photographs of American Indians by Edward Curtis and Carl Moon to contemporary Western landscapes and wildlife images by Booth Photography Guild veterans Lynn Henderson, John Mariana and Larry Marchant. Both color and black and white photographs, along with numerous printing processes, from palladium to pigment prints, are represented in the collection. The Jay Dusard Collection is a significant portion of the overall collection, including nearly 70 prints. Recent acquisitions of works by Barbara Van Cleve, known for her photographs of women ranchers, represent strong holdings as well. Building on the success of the 2018 Kolbrener exhibition, the collection now has a notable number of purchased and donated images by this former student of Ansel Adams. The Booth also continues to bridge the photographic past and present, adding artists like Julianne Kost and her digital abstracted photographs that contrast significantly with Arthur Rothstein’s famous image of a father with his two sons in the Dust Bowl. In December of 2019, a collection of 50 Jack Spencer photographs was loaned to The Booth by Jeffery Hugh Newman. Seventeen have since been donated to the Museum. As we look to the future of the permanent photography collection, we strive to continue to collect quality contemporary artists while also acquiring iconic images from photographers of the past.
