Ackland Museum displays Stonehenge photographs
By LEAH TALLEY
Paul Capon igro takes you onto the Salis
bury Plain in Wiltshire, England in the Ack
land Museum's fifth in the Facets series,
Paul Caponigro The Stonehenge Portfolio.
Caponigro, considered one of today's'
great American photographers, completed
this portfolio of Stonehenge pictures in 1978.
The original collection of photographs con
tained 60 prints. Ackland Museum recently '
acquired twelve of these black and white .
photographs, taken from 1967 to 1972.
"These particular photographs (In the:
Stonehenge portfolio) were purchased ;
directly from Paul Caponigro," Claire Baum
said. Baum is the assistant registrar of the
The Ackland Museum has over 100 photo
graphs in its collection, making it one of thee
best in the Southeast according to Gayle
Warwick. Ackland's public relations director.
All major photographers are represented-including
prints by Eugene Atget, Paul Strand,
Harry Callihan and Paul Caponigro.
"Since" Evan Turner has been here (as di
rector of the museum), he has done a major
job in collecting 20th century photography,"
Warwick said. "He feels it is an interest to
the student body and one of the major art
forms of the 20th century."
The Facets series hopes to expose this
area to contemporary art by bringing in ma-
jor exhibitors. Warwick said "the Caponigro
show is a little different as they (the photo
graphs) are acquisitions." The previous five
Facets shows were all outside exhibitions.
"We are very excited about it (the Facets
series)' Warwick said. "The Ackland doesn't
have a significant collection of 20th century
art, paintings and sculpture." Instead, the
museum has stressed the purchase of photo
graphy, wich is more reasonably priced.
"So far, we've covered just about every
aspect of modem art with the Facets series,"
Warwick said. The previous exhibition was a
collection of paintings by two contemporary
British painters, Gilbert and George.
"Because of the lack of space in the
museum, we don't have space to show the
photography collection," Warwick said. The
Caponigro exhibit, showing through Nov. 29
in the Print Gallery, allows some of the print
collection to be seen. Also, the Print room,
located on the. second floor of Ackland, is
open on Wednesdays from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
During this time, anyone may request to see
prints in the Ackland collection. Ct)
