On View

Elijah Barrett: Rockport

Thursday,  7.19.18   |   5–9 pm
"Rockport is Austin-based artist Elijah Barrett's account of the weeks and months after Hurricane Harvey swept through the community of Rockport, Texas and the surrounding area. On its surface, this group of photographs takes the form of a conventional photo essay, but it preserves what might otherwise be considered the outtakes or rejects, generating a retelling that is interpretive and diaristic as much as it is documentary. The photographs explore seeing and perceiving disaster, both the impulse to shield one's eyes from what is overwhelming and the strain to see hard realities more clearly."

Cell Series: Helen Altman

June 2 through August 25, 2018
An exhibition of works by Fort Worth-based artist Helen Altman. From the Old Jail: "Altman’s work centers around common materials, objects, and images of animals and nature. The objects she utilizes in her work often derive from the flawed or discarded. Altman then makes alterations to these objects elevating them into the realm of “art,” thereby forcing interpretation of her choices and manipulations."
