On view through August 15, 2021, this exhibition explores nearly 70 years of artistic experimentations with photographic processes and subject matter by artists in the Delaware Valley region.
Considered through the lenses of Form & Figuration, Landscape, Community, and Social Activism, approximately 100 photographs by Paula Chamlee, Edmund Eckstein, David Graham, Susan Fenton, Emmett Gowin, Diane Levell, Jack Rosen, Charles Sheeler and others demonstrate a diversity of styles and approaches.
With work ranging from carefully hand-painted, bucolic landscapes to decisive snapshots taken on the street, "Through the Lens" highlights distinctive work in the Michener’s photography collection, including many that have never before been on view.
