Color My World: Color Photographs from the Permanent Collection
May 22–August 19, 2012
This exhibition looks at the impulse to color the black-and-white world of photography from the very earliest days of the invention through the gradual embrace of color photography as an artistic medium beginning in the 1970s. A wide range of processes will be included, from hand-tinted tintypes to dye-transfer prints to more recent chromogenic methods.
American Quilts from the Terasaki Collection
June 12–August 26, 2012
This exhibition features nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American quilts from the private collection of Etsuko Terasaki. Sophisticated in design, they testify to the timeless human impulse to create order and beauty in our surroundings, with whatever resources available, for utility and for pure visual pleasure.
Protecting Paper at the Palmer
June 19–September 9, 2012
Prints, drawings, watercolors, and photographs are highly susceptible to damage from light, humidity, bugs, stuff in the air—and people. This exhibition examines the steps we take to protect our works on paper from harm once they have entered the permanent collection, as well as the conservation efforts we make in order to mitigate whatever damage may have occurred before they were acquired.
