Brazos Gallery Presents “Unrestored: Roots Flying South,” by Anna Lee Wagoner

UnknownIMG_3175Brazos Gallery presents the photography of Anna Lee Wagoner in the exhibition Unrestored: Roots Flying South.  The exhibition opens Monday Feb 9th.  The reception and artist talk is on Wednesday Feb 11th from 12 – 1p.m.  Please come and view this wonderful exhibition of beautiful nostalgic imagery.

Anna Lee Wagoner is a native Texan, born and raised in San Antonio. Her first encounter with a camera was around the age of 13, starting with disposable point-and-shoots. Once in high school, she had her first film camera, an Olympus OM-10, which provided her with a new way to look at the world. She had always been curious, particularly with the relationship of inanimate objects in rural environments. The camera gave her an opportunity to explore these relationships and to build a new visual vocabulary.

Richland College will present renowned photographer John Sexton at 1 p.m. on Sept. 7 in Fannin Performance Hall at Richland College.

Respected photographer, master printmaker, author and workshop instructor, Sexton’s free lecture at Richland will include examples and anecdotes drawn from his six-year close working relationship with Ansel Adams. Images by both Sexton and Adams will be transformed on the screen from the negative to the final print, progressing through the various creative steps in the evolution of an expressive photographic print. A poster sale and signing in the Fannin Performance Hall lobby will follow the presentation.

Sexton is best known for his luminous, quiet, black and white photographs of the natural environment. He worked as technical and photographic assistant and then technical consultant to Adams from 1979 to 1984. Sexton assisted Adams both in the darkroom and in the field. He conducted all of the technical testing on the revised editions of Adams’ books The Negative and The Print. Following Adams’ death, Sexton served as photographic special projects consultant to The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust. Sexton was an instructor at number of the Ansel Adams Yosemite Workshops and the director of the workshop program in the early 1980s.

Sexton is the recipient of the 2005 North American Nature Photography Association Lifetime Achievement Award. His most recent book is Recollections: Three Decades of Photographs, an award-winning retrospective volume. Sexton’s other books include Quiet Light, Listen to the Trees, and Places of Power: The Aesthetics of Technology.

Richland continues its commitment to excellence in photography by bringing world-class photographers to campus to interact with students concluding with a free public lecture, poster sale and signing.
