March 5 - May 26: "Marie Cosindas: Instant Color
(FORT WORTH )
Marie Cosindas (b. 1925), a textile designer and color coordinator for a company that made museum reproductions, did not intend to be a photographer. In 1961, she participated in one of Ansel Adams' photography workshops in Yosemite Valley. The next year, when Polaroid sought photographers to test its new instant color film before bringing it to market, Adams recommended her. Cosindas immediately took to the process of instant-developing color film and, in so doing, proved instrumental in revealing the artistic potential of color photography. This exhibition includes 40 of Cosindas's one-of-a-kind Polaroid photographs and is the artist's first major show in decades. Amon Carter Museum of American Art, 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd.
