Upcoming Exhibitions

In Praise of Trees: Woodcuts by Naoko Matsubara

December 9, 2022-May 21, 2023
Lockhart Gallery

In Praise of Trees showcases the work of the contemporary Japanese-Canadian print artist Naoko Matsubara (b. 1937). The exhibition presents 39 woodcuts from her portfolio In Praise of Trees. Each print represents a single tree or a quality associated with trees, such as hardness, strength, stability, and vitality. All were inspired by her childhood memories of Kyoto, Japan, where she grew up as the daughter of a Shinto priest.

Joan Lyons

February 25-October 15, 2023
Forman Gallery & Installations through MAG’s American permanent collection galleries

Joan Lyons (b. 1937) has been extending the limits of photography, printmaking, and artists’ books for over six decades. In the 1960s–1980s, she focused on a feminist inquiry into the deeply personal and particular as subjects for her art. To this day she continues to investigate the power and conventions of photography, image-making, and representation within Western culture. The Memorial Art Gallery has organized the first museum exhibition to survey the artist’s significant career in her home town of Rochester, NY.
