Through August 20th: “Double Take: Works by Ed Blackburn”

This solo show organized by the TMA highlights the acclaimed Texas artist’s ongoing fascination with pop-culture – particularly movies. The 30-plus paintings, prints, and lithographs gathered from public and private collections throughout the region distill scenes from iconic films ranging from the Elvis Presley vehicle “Tickle Me” to the noir classic “The Big Heat.”

Related programming in the works include a summer film series co-hosted by the City of Tyler’s Liberty Hall. The exhibition runs through August 20th.

Upcoming Exhibits
  • June 4th-September 17th – “Making A Splash”
  • October 1st-January 7th – “Andy Warhol: Screen Prints & Snapshots”

Drawn from the Cochran Collection in Georgia, the works in this highly anticipated exhibition represent a cross-section of some of the most iconic output from history’s most celebrated purveyor of Pop Art. The subjects range from the dark (Dracula) to the whimsical (Howdy Doody, Mickey Mouse), creating a cross-section of Americana through the lens of Warhol’s singular vision. The name recognition that comes with Warhol is an immediate draw in the art world, and we anticipate this exhibition easily to be among the 10 most popular in the TMA’s history. The exhibition continues through January 7th, 2018.
