Harn Museum presents exhibition of photography by Anne Noggle
GAINESVILLE, Fla.— This summer the Harn Museum of Art explores the beauty of female vitality as women age in the “Anne Noggle: Reality and the Blind Eye of Truth” exhibition.
The photographs represent Noggle’s varied interests and lengthy careers as a pilot and an artist. The exhibition is on view until March 10, 2013.
As an acclaimed artist whose work is included in many public and private collections, Anne Noggle became a professional photographer at age 40, after serving as a Women Airforce Service Pilot during World War II and later as a captain in the U.S. Air Forces.
Through her self-portraits and photographs of family and friends, Noggle’s work explores the theme of aging and beauty while challenging the stereotypes women face as they age. Her photographs present an honest, respectful and sometimes humorous view.
This exhibition is drawn from a recent gift of 97 photographs from the Anne Noggle Foundation in 2010. The gift represents a diverse and strong collection of works from the course of Noggle’s career and is supplemented by 21 key works donated by Andrew Smith and Claire Lozier of New Mexico. This exhibition is made possible by the Sidney Knight Endowment and the Fund for Excellence with additional support from the Harn Annual Fund.
Admission to the museum is free. For more information, call 352-392-9826 or visit www.harn.ufl.edu.
