PDNB Gallery celebrates the diverse talents that live in our great state of Texas. This exhibition will highlight a rich pool of artists in the group show, Deep in the Art of Texas.
The photographs range from landscape, portraiture, and documentary to abstract and conceptual. The dates span from the 1940’s to present.
There is no theme in common with these Texas artists, each has their own style and vision, which makes for a very eclectic show.
Carlotta Corpron, a professor of art at Texas Woman’s University in the mid- 20 th Century is featured by her abstract work that is widely known. She was recently included in an exhibition, Women in Abstraction, at the Pompidou Museum in Paris. Her archive was placed with the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas.
Fast forward to 1993, when Michael O’Brien had an assignment to photograph the ZZ Top band in Humble, Texas. Not only is the photographer from Texas, the band is too, from Houston. Recently Dusty Hill passed away, a big loss to ZZ Top fans all over.
Peter Brown’s stunning landscape taken in Limon, Colorado in 2006 was so dramatic that it became the cover image of his book, West of Last Chance, which included writing by notable author, Kent Haruf.
Also featured is a sneak preview of Don Netzer’s recent body of work, Killer Cartridges, a conceptual series regarding mass shootings in America.
New artists will be included in this exhibition: Dallas based Nitashia Johnson, Norm Diamond and Dan Sellers, and Beaumont based Cathy Spence.
