Better Shades of Gray

Anybody can print a copy of an Ansel Adams photograph. If you have access to your company’s printer, you could do it right now, and you won’t even need the color code, because most of his shots are black and white. But like any piece of art, there’s something about knowing that the artist touched it, that after printing one of his landscape photographs, he considered it something worth sending out into the world. The Arlington Museum of Art, 201 W. Main St., plays host to Ansel Adams: Masterworks, a series of 48 photographs printed by the artist. His stunning shots of some of America’s most breathtaking natural landmarks will be unveiled 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and the exhibition continues through August 3. Tickets to the museum are $8 for adults, $5 for students and seniors. Children 12 and younger are admitted free. More information is at
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, 1-5 p.m. Starts: May 3. Continues through Aug. 3, 2014
