I received an email from Lynn Davis’ studio announcing her latest exhibition, Lynn Davis: Persistence of Form: Photographs 1978 – 2010, currently on view through October 30 at Knoedler & Company in NY.
Lynn is also a participant in the Modern Views project to benefit preservation efforts at the Farnsworth House and the Glass House. She donated a digital print, Maison de Verre, France, 2001,which was auctioned at an event held at the Arts Club in Chicago last week.
Additional works donated to the Modern Views project will be auctioned at an event to be held at Sotheby’s New York on October 6 (view Modern Views complete catalogue).
Lynn’s work is also featured as part of the Glass House permanent collection. Three toned gelatin silver prints hang in the entrance to the Painting Gallery on the Glass House site. Visits to the Painting Gallery are featured on all six Glass House tours.

The Glass House store (located at the Visitor Center) also carries a set of notecards featuring black and white photos that Lynn Davis captured on-site. The cards come in a set of eight and include images of Philip Johnson’s dogs, Alice and James; Philip Johnson’s Library/Study; Brick House; Pavilion; Ghost House; Lincoln Kirstein Tower and the Glass House.
