BOCA RATON, FL.- The Boca Raton Museum of Art has announced three new exhibitions which will be shown in the next few months.

Gary T. Erbe: Forty Year Retrospective
A showcase of more than sixty trompe l'oeil paintings drawn from private and public collections, by this self-taught artist. Gary Erbe (born in Union City, NJ 1944- ) is internationally recognized for his realistic style of painting and has exhibited throughout the United States. Trompe l’oeil (to fool the eye) is illusionist painting that goes back to ancient Rome, 17th-century Dutch painting, and 19th-century American painting. Erbe works in a painstaking technique building up layers of thin color glazes to achieve the illusion of real depth and volume in his painting. As exercises in virtuosity, many works take up to a year to complete. This forty-year retrospective presents Erbe’s best work depicting pop culture of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s including his collage paintings meticulously recorded from Erbe’s own constructed and arranged tableaux.

Gary T. Erbe: Forty Year Retrospective has been organized by the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio, and travel also to The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Clyde Butcher: Wilderness Visions
Clyde Butcher’s compelling black and white photographs chronicle some of America’s most beautiful and complex ecosystems. For more than thirty years, self-taught photographer Butcher (American, born Kansas City, Missouri 1944- ) has been preserving the untouched landscape on film, and for twenty of those years he has concentrated on Florida. The exquisite beauty of his work draws the viewer into a relationship with nature. His images are captured with 8x10 inch, 11x14 inch, and 16 x 20 inch view cameras. The large format allows him to express in elaborate detail the textures that distinguish the beauty of the landscape. This exhibition presents work from the last twenty-five years ranging from the forests of the Pacific Northwest, to the rocky country of Utah and Colorado, to the woodlands of the Chesapeake region and the wetlands of Florida. This exhibition is organized by the Boca Raton Museum of Art.

Stephen Althouse: Tools and Shrouds
This exhibition debuts a series of 35 large format black and white photographs by Stephan Althouse completed over the last decade. Althouse transforms familiar objects into symbols of human experience and spiritual striving. Born in Washington DC in 1948, Althouse grew up in rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he trained as a sculptor. The product of a Quaker education, Althouse received his MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, and studied sculpture at Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia. The sculptural tradition of making and manipulating subject matter is carried over in his photography, and is further explored in these enigmatic and powerful images. This exhibition is organized by the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
