Western Art Collector - - WESTERN ART TRAIL CALENDAR -

Es­tab­lished in 1924 as the Tuc­son Fine Arts As­so­ci­a­tion, the Tuc­son Mu­seum of Art and His­toric Block now en­com­passes one city block of his­toric down­town Tuc­son, Ari­zona. Each sea­son it hosts orig­i­nal ex­hi­bi­tions and wel­comes sev­eral trav­el­ing shows through its doors. Open­ing Oc­to­ber 19 is The Western Sub­lime: Ma­jes­tic Land­scapes of the Amer­i­can West, ex­am­in­ing works of art “that in­ter­pret, rein­vent and trans­form the idea of the sub­lime: an aes­thetic ideal with an emo­tional or spir­i­tual charge that in­stills awe or in­spires fear.” The show in­cludes paint­ings, pho­to­graph, tex­tiles, prints and more from the mid-1800s through to­day. On the same day, Harry Brorby: The strength of a cold line. opens with art­work span­ning four decades of the artist’s ca­reer. Southwest Ris­ing: Con­tem­po­rary Art and the Legacy of Elaine Hor­witch kicks off on Fe­bru­ary 29. Fea­tured will be art­work from some of Elaine Hor­witch Gal­leries’ most pop­u­lar artists— in­clud­ing Tom Pal­more, Billy Schenck, Fritz Scholder, Ge­or­gia O’ke­effe and Bob Wade—with pieces pulled from the Tuc­son Mu­seum of Art’s own col­lec­tion and from loans. Other shows com­ing this sea­son are Pa­trick Martinez: Fall­ing Em­pire., from March 22 through Septem­ber 20, 2020, and Oax­a­can Folk Art from the Shep­ard Bar­bash and Vicki Ra­gan Col­lec­tion, a show from the mu­seum’s col­lec­tion that is on ex­hibit Oc­to­ber 3 through Au­gust 9, 2020.

“The Tuc­son Mu­seum of Art is de­but­ing two ex­cit­ing Western-re­lated art ex­hi­bi­tions this sea­son: The Western Sub­lime: Ma­jes­tic Land­scapes of the Amer­i­can West open­ing Oc­to­ber 19, 2019, and Southwest Ris­ing: Con­tem­po­rary Art and the Legacy of Elaine Hor­witch. Both pro­vide dif­fer­ent view­points of how the West in­spired artists— from the past and present—and how art can be cul­tur­ally in­ter­twined with a sense of place.” – Chris­tine Brindza, Se­nior Cu­ra­tor, Glasser Cu­ra­tor of Art of the Amer­i­can West, Tuc­son Mu­seum of Art
