Karen Sinsheimer, 1942 - 2015 Curator of Photography at Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Thursday, September 10, 2015 by CHARLES DONELAN. The conversations at her dinner parties, which famously blended interesting people from the community with scholars and students, and the excitement of her legendary Halloween teas contributed not a little to securing a solid future for what was at the time a somewhat precariously situated institution. All this would have been enough responsibility for an ordinary person, but for Karen Sinsheimer, it was just the start.

Spanning the history of photography, the images found in the Marjorie and Leonard Vernon collection offer the neophyte and aficionado alike a delicious taste of fine art photography. Rich in works dating from the 19th century, such as the delicate rendition of Henry Fox Talbot's Lace captured on a paper negative (1840s), the Vernon collection also embraces the 20th century. The bold, mural-size color rendering of Paris made in 1998 by Stephane Couturier suggests the range in subject, scale, feeling, and tone that characterizes the works in this extraordinary collection.

Familiar names known to all lovers of the medium - Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, and Paul Strand - are well represented with both iconic and rare images; other visual treasures by less well-known practitioners are found throughout these pages. Abstraction and the graphic qualities of the photographic print, as well as simple, classic beauty, are recurring themes that transcend time, place, and maker.

The one-hundred-fifty photographs, chosen from the Vernon's collection of five thousand photographs which they selected over a period of two decades, offer an extraordinay glimpse into a rare collection and the remarkable couple who created it.
