Under a Dry Moon: Photographs by Michael P. Berman
Through April 30, 2006
An exhibition presenting the photography of Michael P. Berman, an artist whose primary medium is the large format view camera that he transports across the difficult dessert terrain known as El Gran Desierto, along the New Mexico and Mexico international borders.

XXL
Through February 19, 2006
XXL is an exhibition of large-scale paintings from the permanent collection that investigates the impact of scale in terms of how it changes the content of an artwork and why to many contemporary artists it seems that size might equal aesthetic grandeur.

Courage & Conviction: WWII Posters from the Permanent Collection
Through February 5, 2006
Numerous sides of a period that many, although always fewer, remember. Originally created between the years of 1941-1945 to effectively communicate with the masse, the imagery & design of these posters have much to offer the war historian, veteran & art enthusiast alike.

New York City: Twentieth-Century Photorealism
Beginning February 12 through May 14, 2006
This important group of works represent some of the major artists such as Charles Bell and Hilo Chen in the movement of photorealism (or hyperrealism) in the second half of the twentieth century. While there is a direct influence from Pop art, the photorealists emerged with great technical mastery later around the 1970s and were interested in individual expressions of "realism" in New York City. These ten works are an ambitious interpretation of the vibrancy of life in New York City.
