• 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 Oct. 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.
• 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.
• 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.

• Through Oct. 12: Without Words — This interactive exhibit focuses on the various non-verbal communication tools used by the railroad and the science behind them that allowed for railroad technicians to communicate at night, across distances and during challenging weather conditions.

The exhibit will be displayed in the Lobby Gallery.
• Through March 2017: Winning works of the Center for Railroad Photography and Art’s 2015 John E. Gruber Creative Photography Award will be exhibited including the grand prize photograph by Matthew Malkiewicz, of Mount Laurel, N.J., titled “Beneath Calm Waters” that captured a locomotive and its reflection over water. Other artists include Christian Zell of Boppard, Germany, who received second place for a visually spectacular image of fire being dropped from a steam locomotive and third place winner, Nick King of Handforth, United Kingdom, for his impressionist-styled “Waiting for the Train Home” image. Winners and a selection of the award-winning photographs will be featured in the Spring 2016 issue of the Center for Railroad Photography’s Railroad Heritage journal and in the March 2016 issue of Railfan & Railroad Magazine. More information about the competition and the Center for Railroad Photography & Art can be found at railphoto-art.org.
