"Petit's Mobil Station, Cherry Hill, NJ," a 1974 photography by George A. Tice (Newark Museum)


The Newark Museum salutes the talent and generosity of photographer George Tice with a new exhibition — Seeing Beyond the Moment — perfectly timed for the artist's 75th birthday.

The show, on view through Feb. 2, features landmarks works from the Newark born photographer who is best known for his large-scale black and white images of New Jersey. Among the two dozen works are examples of prints he made for other photographers, including giants Edward Steichen and Edward Weston.

The show also features works by some of Tice's most accomplished students, including Sally Mann and James Perry Walker.

Most of the pieces in the show are gifts Tice made to the museum over the last three decades, and many are on view for the first time.

On Oct. 13 at 2 p.m., the photographer's birthday, the museum will host the world premiere of a documentary film about Tice by Bruce Wodder, Peter Bosco and Douglas Underdahl.

The movie follows Tice from the field to the dark room and includes interviews with art experts about his contributions to the field of photography.

The free screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmma
