Indeterminate Beauty presents a brief yet bold selection of works by influential Kiowa/Caddo artist T.C. Cannon. His artistic motivations were ignited by the sociopolitical atmosphere of America during the mid-20th century and illustrated by saturated colors juxtaposed with subjects that examine identity. The exhibition features five woodcut prints of Cannon’s oeuvre, acquired through a gift in memory of Gil Waldman, along with Moon and Stars over Taos (1974), an acquisition made possible thanks to the generosity of 18 supporters in memory of Gil Waldman.
