Tubach + Tubach : Preservation

Tubach + Tubach : Preservation

Tubach + Tubach : Preservation features the work of Allan and Lisa Tubach, whose art and lives are significantly connected. As father and daughter, and as dedicated painters, these artists share a deep empathy for our natural and cultural worlds. Separately, they have both been exploring issues of preservation in their work for years, weaving personal narrative into these larger realities. This exhibition highlights both their individual passions— cultural heritage for Allan and environmental sustainability for Lisa— and also presents a unique synthesis of these visions, by examining their work through the lens of father and daughter, and as active stewards of both realms.

Dr. Molly Hutton will give a talk at the gallery on Friday, January 8.

SAVE THE DATE: January 8, 2016

Dr. Hutton's scholarship and in-depth understanding of Kent's work made her the right choice to curate our current exhibition, as well as the Joslyn exhibition in 2010. Her first article about Kent appeared in the Gettysburg Review in 2004.
We will have an audio/video team on hand to record anecdotes from Kent's friends.

Contact us in advance if you have a story to share.
