The cowboy culture will be the theme of this group exhibition, with photographs by Bank Langmore from the 1970s. Bank Langmore's photographic survey and book, The Cowboy, became one of the most important documents of the modern cattle drive. Also included will be photographs of the contemporary cowboy that work the "big outfit" ranches in the United States. These are by Bank Langmore's son, John Langmore.

Local Dallas photographer, Chris Regas, a longtime friend and colleague of Bank Langmore's, will be included with his unique images of the mythical cowboy. Added selections from Jeremy Enlow's recent series, "Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch," will remind us that the Cowboy jobs will be fewer after great ranches like the Waggoner become sold.

Vintage rodeo photographs from the 1940s by John Stryker are also part of this exhibition. One of the rodeo photographs features Gene Autry in his Flight Officer military uniform, standing next to Everett Colborn of Dublin, Texas.

The Myth of the Cowboy cannot be complete without including the story of the Native American. Distinguished images by Edward S. Curtis will be featured from his lifetime document, The North American Indian. These beautiful photogravures depict some of the Southwestern tribes, the San Ildefonso, Wichita, Tesuque and Yokut.

Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display through November 11.
