All the prints in the exhibition are available for sale. When pieces are sold, they are replaced with new work. Original photographs are accompanied by Letters of Provenance.

MOMENT IN TIME: A COLLECTION OF PHOTOGRAPHS / WORKS FROM THE BANK OF AMERICA COLLECTION

Running through September 23, this group exhibition is on view at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA. It features works from the first corporate collection of photography that was assembled by Beaumont and Nancy Newhall in the late 1960s. Spanning the history of photography, it includes images created by such luminaries as Julia Margaret Cameron, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dorothea Lange, Imogen Cunningham, Robert Frank, and, of course, Wynn.

The Museum (MoPA) is open Tuesdays through Sundays, 10am to 5pm.

SEEING THROUGH: WINDOWS AND MIRRORS IN TWENTIETH-CENTURY PHOTOGRAPHY

This group show opened on June 2 at the University of Michigan's Museum of Art in Ann Arbor and will run through September 23. In a personal note which accompanied the spring/summer 2018 issue of the UUMA Magazine, Assistant Curator of Photography Jennifer M. Friess explained that Wynn's image Self-Portrait, 1971 served as the impetus behind the exhibition. In her illustrated article for the magazine, she wrote:

"This exhibition brings together a group of photographs in which the world is doubly framed – one by the camera lens and again by the border of a mirror or window. …Highlights include the works by prominent twentieth-century photographers such as Eugène Atget, Walker Evans, and Wynn Bullock."

UMMA Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays, 11am to 5pm, and Sundays, 12 to 5pm.

WAY BAY 2

Opening on June 13 and running through September 2 at the University of California's Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, this is the second iteration of an innovatively organized exhibition of art, film, performance, poetry, and archival materials. Ranging in scope from the early nineteenth century to the present, the exhibition explores themes and powerful artistic voices that have emerged from the Bay Area across times and cultures. The initial Way Bay show included one of Wynn's Color Light Abstractions, and this show features another photograph from his ground-breaking abstract color work.

BAMPFA is open 11am to 7pm Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays; 11am to 9pm Fridays and Saturdays. It is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

WOMEN – THROUGH THE LENS

Photo Gallery International (PGI) in Tokyo will open this group show on July 12 and it will be available for viewing until September 1. It will include two works by Wynn from the Gallery's collection: Nude behind Cobwebbed Window, 1955 and Woman with Dog in Forest, 1953.

PGI has represented Wynn's work in Japan for many years and has been instrumental in placing his photographs in the permanent holdings of several museums through the country.

The Gallery is open Mondays through Fridays,11am to 7pm, and Saturdays, 11am to 6pm.


WYNN AND EDNA BULLOCK – A NEW ONLINE VIDEO

Several years ago, Barbara Bullock-Wilson was invited to participate in the Museum of Monterey's living history project. She was one of 100 residents who were asked to share stories about various aspects of life on the Monterey Peninsula, including the people who called the region their home. We are now just getting around to posting this 17-minute video on our website. Although the visuals are not the best, the information Barbara conveys about her parents make for fascinating listening.


REVELATIONS TOUR HAS ENDED, BUT THE MONOGRAPH LIVES ON

Wynn Bullock: Revelations, the magnificent retrospective that premiered at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA, in 2014 and then toured to the University of Maryland Art Gallery in College Park, MD, the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, AZ, and the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, IA, has finally come to a close.

You can access extensive coverage of the premiere showing of Revelations on our "Exhibition Highlights" pages. We'll be posting additional photos and materials about the tour in the coming months.

Although the exhibition is over, the beautiful monograph that accompanied it will continue to be available through the University of Texas Press as well as Amazon. You may also order a signed copy by Wynn's daughter Barbara through our online store. The book features an exceptionally fine selection of Wynn's images, along with a deeply insightful essay by the exhibition's curator Brett Abbott. It also includes a wonderfully illustrated chronology of Wynn's life as well as additional information about publications, collections, and exhibitions.
