de Young Museum, San Francisco, CA
April 8 - July 23, 2023
Binh Danh, Chris McCaw, and Meghann Riepenhoff are included in Ansel Adams in Our Time, opening at the de Young Museum on April 8. Ansel Adams in Our Time places the work of photographer and environmentalist Ansel Adams in dialogue with the photographers who influenced him, as well as 23 contemporary artists whose practices engage anew with the sites and subjects that occupied Adams throughout his life—from national parks to the use and misuse of natural resources. Adams’s legacy continues to inspire and provoke, influencing how we envision the landscape and serving as an urgent call to preserve our environment.

Ansel Adams in Our Time was organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in partnership with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The exhibition was curated by Karen Haas, Lane Senior Curator of Photographs, MFA Boston; and has traveled to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, AR (2020-21); and Portland Museum of Art, OR (2021).

Breathe in The Sky

April 6 - May 25

Breathe in the Sky, a solo show featuring photographs from Hasna Muhammad, the daughter of renowned civil rights activists Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis. Her parents' activism provides important context for Muhammad’s work that spans over many years, capturing intimate memories with family, alongside monumental historical events. This exhibit is curated by Haifa Bint-Kadi.

Muhammad was taught that dreaming was insufficient and that it was her duty, alongside her family, to take action if she truly wanted to invoke and see change. She captures the personal and the political through strikingly poignant photography from raw moments captured at her own father’s funeral in Final Days (recently exhibited at Sarah Lawrence College), to the ordinary and beautiful lives of Harlemites of all ages in Harlem Before My Eyes, to her budding personal passion for guitars in My Life with Guitars, and her poetic view of the world in Breathe in The Sky. Muhammad has documented socially and historically significant moments, inviting audiences into her innermost personal sphere.

Hasna Muhammad is a visual artist, writer, and educator whose work focuses on family, social justice, education, and the human condition. Her work has been displayed around the United States and she recently had her first book published, Breathe in The Sky: Poems Prayers & Photographs (Birthmark Media, 2023). She received her B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College and completed her M.A. and Ed.D. at Teachers College, Columbia University.

Paintings & Works on Paper

March 18 - April 22

Continuing its commitment to bringing the public exemplary art exhibitions featuring both emerging and established artists. Warburton Galerie is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Paintings & Works on Paper by artist Stephanie DeManuelle.

Stephanie's work is nature inspired and semi-abstract-beginning with a continuous drawing process that accretes layers of paint as the artist follows a visual trail through the motif. Her desire in painting is to get beneath the surface of the outward appearance of things to reveal what is significant, but not readily visible. A root or a shell will offer an opportunity to explore shape, line and movement that echoes emotional states that are otherwise inaccessible. The resulting works are experienced through the voice of the material-the use of thickly textured and viscous earth toned mixtures that suggest anthropomorphic or geographic imagery. What is dominant is movement and turbulence. The relationships in the paintings are a 'stand in' for the invisible forces, sensations and tensions that govern our consciousness.

Blues, 44” x 29”, Oil & Charcoal on Canvas, 2022

Stephanie DeManuelle grew up in south Louisiana and spends summers in the Adirondack mountains of New York state. She feels the influence of both locales in her work.


Stephanie has been an art educator for the past 35 years, teaching at Parsons School of Design and Fashion Institute of Technology. She served as Chair of the Department of Fine Arts at FIT from 2006-2016 after which she retired from teaching.

US+U’s strength of purpose is to combine emerging and mid-career artists in a partnership to embrace a wide range of artistic approaches. This unique relationship creates a community of people who learn from each other through shared ideas and common goals.

Warburton Galerie is a 4000 sq. ft. space dedicated to bringing the public exemplary art exhibitions via collaborations with curators, art advisors and creative organizations.
