December 13 - February 9, 2020
“Bale Creek Allen’s My America returns to the Texas Panhandle in December 2019. It will open as part of the downtown Wine Walk on Friday the 13th at the Contemporary Art Museum Plainview (CAMP) with a free and open to the public reception for the artist from 6 to 10pm. The exhibition will run through the second week in February 2020 and can be enjoyed during regular CAMP hours from 12pm to 5pm every Thursday through Sunday.
This ambitious series, which is comprised of large-format photographs, installation, sculpture and video is an ongoing effort to find the soul of America and then show it to you. The growing and changing body of work will eventually travel to all 50 states collecting unifying elements from each state like dirt, tree bark, pieces of rubber tires, video captured from a GoPRO camera attached to Allen’s motorcycle and other banal objects that capture who we really are. Exhibiting the work first at the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts in Lubbock in 2016, the show has since then traveled throughout the southwest to important spaces including Santa Fe’s Gerald Peters Projects, Houston’s Texas Gallery and The Old Jail Center in Albany.”
