PLEASE NOTE, THIS EXHIBITION IS NOW CLOSED.
On the occasion of George Tice’s 75th birthday, the Newark Museum is celebrating the photographer’s extraordinary work and generosity in Seeing Beyond the Moment: The Photographic Legacy and Gifts of George Tice. The exhibition focuses on Tice’s multivalent career as a photographer, master printer and teacher and as a major donor to the Newark Museum’s photography collection. Featuring more than two dozen photographs, all are drawn from the Museum’s collection and many are on view for the first time. Seeing Beyond the Moment consists of large format black and white photographs by Tice–including such iconic works as White Castle, Route 1, Rahway, N.J., 1973–as well as his remarkable scenes of nature. Highlighting Tice’s unequaled gift for photographic printing, the exhibition includes a selection of prints he made for other photographers, including Edward Steichen and Edward Weston. His role as a teacher is demonstrated by a selection of works by his mentees, including Sally Mann, Tim Barnwell, James Perry Walker and Brian Lav, among others. Most of these works were gifted to the Museum by Tice over the past thirty years.
