PDNB Gallery presents Peter Brown: "Hometown Texas" opening reception
When Texas was admitted to the Union, as journalist Joe Holley recounts, Congress authorized it to form “new States of convenient size, not exceeding four in number and in addition to the said State of Texas.”
PDNB Gallery artist, Peter Brown, and Joe Holley, a journalist known for his column, Native Texan, in the Houston Chronicle, collaborated on a book released last fall, Hometown Texas.
Texas is perfect subject matter for both photographer and journalist. The book explores the land and people of this vast state of Texas: East, West, North, South and Central. They illustrate through stories and pictures, the place that shapes a person, that defines them as Texans.
Brown has spent his career photographing the Great Plains that encompass Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Utah, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. Although he was born in the East, his home state has been Texas for thirty-five years.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through May 5.
