August 27 - October 25, 2020
A solo exhibition featuring work from Ned Bosnick held in the Museum’s permanent colleciton.
From the Museum:
“Ned Bosnick’s Texas Towns from the Museum’s permanent collection is set to open on Thursday, August 27th and will be on view until October 25th. This exhibition is a compilation of photographs that Bosnick took of one hundred and fifty towns in Texas. Originally he presented this body of work as a gift to the State in honor of its sesquicentennial in 1986. All the black and white photos are gelatin silver on fiber-based paper toned with Rapid Selenium.
Just as artists help us see our world in new ways and allow us to take journeys that we might never otherwise travel, Bosnick photographed his view of Texas, documenting with film places that normally may have been ignored or forgotten. Bosnick arranged the photographs in a cinematic or storyboard manner so as to take us on a journey across the state with him. Each photograph is meant to have transition from one to the next, with themes connecting and intertwining elements of design.
Bosnick was born in Universal, Pennsylvania in 1937. He graduated from Dickson College with in 1959 and earn his Masters of Arts from UCLA in the Motion Picture Department in 1965. Bosnick passed away in 2011 after a long legacy of capturing life on film.”
