Alice Geneva Glazier, better known as Gene Kloss, left a mark on the art world that is anything but a reprint. The early mid-century American printmaker altered the gender stereotype of the Taos School by being one of the first women to make a name for herself with rich, black-and-white depictions of the Southwest. She created them with her definitive etching style and acid application process.
In the exhibition “Gene Kloss: Light and Shadow,” viewers will have the chance to take in more than 50 of Kloss’s works, including some rarely-debuted prints. The show is on view through Sunday, April 6, at Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 North Central Avenue. Hours Saturday, January 11, are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Museum admission is $15 for adults.
