DOROTHEA LANGE'S AMERICA
On view through December 30
Babcock Wing Gallery

"Invariably, these photographs do more than simply document the social problems of their era. They’re powerful images in the way that great paintings are powerful — vividly specific, strongly composed and evocative of broad human themes."

— Tom Patterson, Winston-Salem Journal

Highlighting Dorothea Lange's America are oversized exhibition prints of the photographer's seminal images from the Great Depression, including  Migrant Mother, Nipomo, California  from 1936—an emblematic picture that came to personify pride and resilience in the face of abject poverty in 1930s America. Lange’s photographs are supplemented by photographs by other notable social documentarians of the era, including Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, Russell Lee, and Mike Disfarmer.


All works are from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. This exhibition was organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions. Reynolda House is grateful for the generous support of the exhibition from Lead Sponsors Claire & Hudnall Christopher and Debbie & Mike Rubin and Exhibition Partners Lynn & Barry Eisenberg, Pam & Fred Kahl, and Phoenix Packaging.

JOHN SLOAN: NEW YORK ETCHINGS
Closes November 25
Northeast Bedroom Gallery
John Sloan is perhaps best remembered today as one of the most significant and prolific members of the Ashcan School, the group of artists who embraced the vitality of early twentieth-century urban life and depicted it in vivid, gritty glory. In this small installation of nine etchings, we see the stories that Sloan gathered as he strolled through Manhattan. At turns amusing or poignant, sometimes scandalous, these works offer us a glimpse of a dynamically changing country a century ago.

Dorothea Lange, "Grapes of Wrath" Billboard , 1939. Photo negative, 5 x 4 in. © The Dorothea Lange Collection, the Oakland Museum of California. Gift of Paul S. Taylor.
The Depression era was one of the most significant periods in film history, producing numerous masterpieces and changing the role of filmmaking and moviegoing in American life. As hardship led average citizens to seek refuge in movie houses across the country, filmmakers provided that escape, often presenting sharp critiques of the world around them. In this three-week series, a local film scholar will introduce a screening of, and provide commentary following, three Depression-era films.

Check out out remaining films in the series:

More than ten thousand women served as codebreakers during World War II. While their brothers and boyfriends took up arms, these women moved to Washington, D.C. and learned the meticulous work of codebreaking. Their efforts shortened the war and saved countless lives, but a strict vow of secrecy nearly erased their efforts from history—until now. Author Liza Mundy will discuss and read from her new book  Code Girls .

Mundy is the New York Times bestselling author of  The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female Breadwinners Is Transforming Sex, Love and Family and Michelle: A Biography . This event is presented with Bookmarks.

Hank, Pattie, and The Current
Chatham Rabbits
Two of North Carolina’s veteran bluegrass musicians join forces with some of the Triangle area’s most versatile musicians to create modern, American, acoustic music featuring the full range of their talents as composers and arrangers. The band follows in the footsteps of Bela Fleck, Mark O'Connor, Chris Thile, Sam Bush, Edgar Meyer, and Tony Rice.


With palpable chemistry and warmth, Chatham Rabbits — Sarah Osborne McCombie (vocals, banjo) and Austin McCombie (vocals, guitar, fiddle) — fill each space they enter with brightness and sincerity. Their songs are stories flush with vivid imagery, contemplative metaphors, and evidence of their binding ties to the South.

Hank, Pattie, and the Current with Chatham Rabbits is part of the More Barn concert series at The Barn at Reynolda Village.
