• Through Sept. 11: Little Dreams in Glass and Metal: Enameling in America, 1920 to the Present — Enameling is the art of fusing glass to metal through a high-temperature firing process that gained widespread popularity in the United States in the last half of the 20th century. In the first decades of the 21st, artists throughout the country continue to explore enamel in a variety of forms, finding new meaning and rich expressive potential in the vibrant color and layered depth of this time-honored medium. Organized by the Los Angeles-based Enamel Arts Foundation, Little Dreams in Glass and Metal includes 122 works by 90 artists from the foundation’s collection of modern and contemporary enamels. Objects range from jewelry to large enamel-on-steel wall panels. Documented in a fully illustrated publication distributed by the University of North Carolina Press, this is the first nationally traveling exhibition to survey this dynamic field in more than 50 years. Little Dreams in Glass and Metal is supported by the Windgate Charitable Foundation, the McLeod Family Foundation and other generous contributors.
• Through Oct. 23: Ourselves through the Lens: Photography from the Collection of Lois and Dr. Barry Ramer — By training the camera on people, photographers from Robert Frank to Flor Garduño have probed the depths of another’s experience, telling richly varied stories about the human condition. Their portrayals challenge preconceptions, subvert expectations and often question what we find in the portrait — truth or artifice. From the joy of play to the singular loneliness of the individual, the images in this exhibition are unexpected and conversation provoking. Selections include prints by celebrated photographers such as Leon Levenstein, Shelby Lee Adams, Luis González-Palma, Ana Mendieta, Larry Sultan and Sebastião Salgado, with contemporary portraiture by Jona Frank, Jessamyn Lovell and Elena Dorfman, among others. In this range of work, both the beautiful and the ravaged are resolved in mesmerizing, humanizing and poignant images.
• Through Oct. 2: Glass for the New Millennium: Masterworks from the Kaplan-Ostergaard Collection — Contemporary glass leapt into the 21st century with new heights of expression. This exhibition surveys the work of some 70 dynamic global artists pushing the medium’s boundaries to make art in its fullest definition. Included are the field’s premier visionaries — Richard Marquis, Marvin Lipofsky, Dale Chihuly, Klaus Moje and others who made glass a vehicle for ideas, forever transforming the 20th century studio movement. Their passionate exploration of European traditions and pursuit of material mastery formed networks of artists, expanding the appreciation of studio glass across continents. More than ever, at the turn of the century, material handling and conceptual exploration challenge how we perceive mass, volume and form. From the life-sized, figural forms of Karen LaMonte to the cast glass abstractions of Richard Whiteley and the expectation-shattering sculptures of Masahiro Asaka and Matthew Szosz, the future of contemporary sculpture emerges.
• Through October 9: The Luster of Ages: Ancient Glass from the Marcy Friedman Collection — Known in Egypt in the time of the Pharoahs glass was used in the ancient world for beads, vessels and eventually small windows. This exhibition explores glass vessels that have miraculously survived the ages, from the 6th century BCE to the 10th century CE. All from the eastern Mediterranean, they reflect the forms and influences of Greek, Roman and Phoenician cultures in the Holy Land. From brightly colored miniature amphoras to lustrous perfume bottles, a beautiful variety of ancient glass is revealed here.
• Oct. 2 through Dec. 31: Claire Falkenstein: Beyond Sculpture — Claire Falkenstein (1908–1997) was one of America’s most experimental and productive 20th century artists. Relentlessly exploring media, techniques, and processes with uncommon daring and intellectual rigor, she moved from one art center to another, working first in the San Francisco Bay Area, then Paris, New York and finally, Los Angeles. Her reputation today rests primarily on her sculpture, which was often radical and ahead of its time, yet she was also an inventive painter and maker of prints, jewelry, glass, films, stage sets for dance, public murals, fountains, and monumental architectural commissions. Although Falkenstein’s extensive oeuvre can appear bewilderingly diverse, her pieces are based on several distinctive structural systems, which became her personal, formal vocabulary. This retrospective exhibition traces the development of Falkenstein’s work both chronologically and geographically through the inclusion of approximately 65 key works — encompassing nearly every media she explored — from the early 1930s through the 1990s.
• Oct. 23 through Jan. 22: Highest Heaven: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art From the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection — Highest Heaven explores a time when art flourished in the Iberian colonial possessions of the Altiplano (high plains) of South America, which stretch from northern Argentina to Peru. Through approximately 107 paintings, sculptures, ivories, objects in silver and furniture, the exhibition traces the development and spread of the Catholic faith through the creation and use of religious art for devotion and instruction. The objects are drawn from the distinguished collection of Roberta and Richard Huber of New York City, built over the course of three decades.
• Oct. 30 through Jan. 29: A Show of Force: Sculpture by Allan Houser (Haozous) Featuring Recent Gifts from Loren G. Lipson — Born Allan Capron Haozous (1914–1994), he became known to the world as Allan Houser and is internationally recognized for his figurative and modernist sculptures featuring Native American people and themes. His parents, Sam and Blossom Haozous, were among the population of Chiricahua Apaches imprisoned for 27 years. The first child born out of captivity, he was raised on the family farm in Oklahoma. With limited formal education and no art instruction, he taught himself to draw, then enrolled in the Painting Studio at the Santa Fe Indian School in 1934. He progressed quickly and soon garnered accolades for his paintings, including mural commissions for the Interior Department in 1938–39. In 1942, he moved to Los Angeles, spending the next five years working in construction by day and painting at night. While there, he saw exhibitions of modernist sculpture, which would influence him as he later pursued 3-D forms. Houser joined the faculty of the new Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe in 1962 and founded its sculpture department. He would ultimately create over 1,000 sculptures in stone, wood, bronze, plaster, and clay. This exhibition features 15 pieces in bronze and stone, several of them recent gifts to the Crocker from Loren G. Lipson. Among these is “Force,” a signature work in Vermont marble depicting an eagle and dove, avian metaphors for war and peace that are unique to the artist’s oeuvre.
• Nov. 13 through Feb. 5, 2017: Reuniting the Masters: European Drawings from West Coast Collections — This innovative exhibition reunites European drawings that have traveled across centuries and continents to different modern collections on the West Coast. By coincidence or by design, drawings by the same artist, for the same project and even from the same sketchbook, have made their way separately to the West Coast. Bringing these long-estranged drawings together again both illuminates the work and process of specific artists in the rich history of European draughtsmanship and also brings forward the history of drawings collectors, from railroad magnates such as E. B. Crocker to Hollywood actors such as Cary Grant and Vincent Price.
