Bob Kolbrener, Spring Rain, Yosemite National Park, CA,1972, Collection of the artist

Bob Kolbrener – Currently Unavailable: Please inquire for further details
Bob Kolbrener works “in the old fashioned way,”using traditional darkroom techniques and large format cameras. In fifty-six black and white photographs, Kolbrener captures ephemeral moments in nature, from rays of sunlight over fog to crashing waves on a winter beach. Kolbrener’s creativity shines through in his photographs of humanity’s “encroachment into nature,” which include road signs wittily framed against Western landscapes. The artists says, “In my early trips into the American West, I was really looking for Ansel Adams-like photographs. And I realized very quickly that the great moments in nature, weather-related situations, didn’t happen very often. In order to stay photographically active, I had to find other things to photograph.” This retrospective celebrates Kolbrener’s wide range of subjects and includes landscapes, portraiture, architecture, and much more.

Jay Dusard
America’s West is home to numerous cultures and ranching traditions. Following a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1981, Jay Dusard has been photographing working cowboys and ranchers across the West. Dusard says, “I’m a cowboy at heart; I like being on horses, I like working cows, and I like helping my neighbors on their ranches.” This retrospective follows Dusard’s career through more than 60 color and black and white photographs of Western landscapes and portraiture.

Barbara Van Cleve
A member of the Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, Barbara Van Cleve is no stranger to ranch life. Van Cleve was raised on her family’s ranch, which had been in her family since the 1880s. Ranch life showed her how everyone had to pitch in and do the work. However, Van Cleve noticed that woman ranchers were often absent in media. Not content to let the vital work of women remain hidden, Van Cleve began photographing women of all ages to show that life is not just men on the range and women in the home. Van Cleve says, “What I simply wanted to do was give the women a voice and recognition.”The stories of these women ranchers are told through 78 black and white photographs and their biographies, all collected by Van Cleve.
