Ansel Adams recognized the shoreline as a place where elemental forces meet. His photographs of beaches, bays, tidal pools, clouds and waterfalls create a body of work that is steely and muscular, full of energy and dynamism. The exhibition features a vital but underappreciated aspect of Adams' modernist art depictions of water and its effects on the landscape.
The Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) celebrates the final week of Ansel Adams: At the Water's Edge with extended viewing hours on Tuesday, October 2 through Friday, October 5. From 5 to 9 pm, visitors enjoy a reduced admission price of $10 and, as always, Salem, Massachusetts residents and PEM members are admitted for free.
