Leslie Adams: Drawn from Life
Through Jan. 13, 2013, Gallery 18
As a young girl Leslie Adams attended art classes at the Toledo Museum of Art. Today she is nationally known for her portraits of distinguished members of society and civic leaders. The first recipient of the Solo Exhibition Award of the Toledo Area Artists Exhibition in 2011, Adams presents a new body of approximately 20 works incorporating Old Master painting compositions and drawing techniques. This work is autobiographical, weaving classical references with a dash of 20th-century pop culture. In it Adams conveys memories of TMA and its collection together with other people, places and objects that have shaped her career and life. Free admission.
Prints and Authors from the Time of Manet
Through Jan. 13, 2013, Works on Paper Gallery
Édouard Manet (1832–1883) came of age during a time of prolific change in Paris and in French society in general. Prints, photographs and illustrated books are included in this exhibition of artworks produced during Manet’s lifetime. More than 120 works by some of the most talented artists working in the period—including Renoir, Corot, Daumier, Whistler, and Manet himself—are featured. Free admission.
Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation
Through Jan. 20, 2013, Galleries 4, 5, 9
From the silent era through the end of the studio system in the late 1950s, these camera artists captured and created the magic that Hollywood symbolized. Featuring more than 90 images, Made in Hollywood offers a glimpse into the world of fantasy, glamour and perfection that the image makers produced—images that have ensured their names are included in the pantheon of fine art photography. Toledo is the final stop for this traveling exhibition of vintage prints organized by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for seniors (ages 65 and older) and students (ages 6–22). Admission is free for Toledo Museum of Art members. The exhibition is sponsored in part by Taylor Cadillac. A companion book, Glamour of the Gods, is available through the Museum Store.
Museum People: Faces of TMA
Through Jan. 20, 2013, Gallery 1
Museum people—those who visit and support the art institutions—come from all walks of life. Last spring, hundreds of Toledo Museum of Art community members of all ages stopped by to have photo headshots taken to be included in this exhibition featuring a sea of more than 600 faces. The collective community portrait is shown from floor-to-ceiling “salon style” adjacent to the Manet: Portraying Life and Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation exhibitions. Free admission. A poster of the exhibition is available for purchase in the Museum Store.
