Clyde Butcher: Florida’s Photographer
MELBOURNE, FLA. — Powerful and haunting photographs of Florida landscapes will fill the galleries at Foosaner Art Museum starting June 8 with the opening of Clyde Butcher: Florida’s Photographer.
The show, featuring 69 Butcher photos from the museum’s permanent collection, will remain up until Oct. 19. The images are from his Limited Edition Collection, which had Butcher (b. 1941) and his large-format cameras capturing Florida’s forests, swamps and estuaries from the St. Johns River to the Keys between 1986 and 1995.
Butcher worked in the darkroom to print a limited edition of only three copies of each image; one for his gallery, one for the Foosaner Art Museum, and one for sale.
Foosaner Art Museum has this rare collection on exhibit from June 8 – October 19. The images are only available for viewing at this exhibit, as they are not to be found in any of Butcher’s books or on his website.
Butcher’s black-and-white photographs enable him to express the details and textures that distinguish the Florida landscape. He said his hope is that by highlighting the Sunshine State’s natural beauty, undeveloped areas of the state will be preserved.
Foosaner to Celebrate Apollo Anniversary
MELBOURNE, FLA. — In honor of the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing, Florida Tech’s Foosaner Art Museum will present a selection of photos from their Americans in Space: from Mercury to Columbia collection. Gifted to the museum in 1994 by Lockheed Martin, these photographs chronicle the history of America’s venture into outerspace.
With the exception of the launch photographs, the reminder of the photographs were taken by the astronauts during various stages of flight activity.
