From the Old Jail Art Center:
“Bruce Lee Webb incorporates his love of hobo lore, train graffiti, folk traditions, and music to create works of art. Often executed on materials that had former lives as book pages, bed linens, tarps, and musical scores, he creates “memory vessels” to expose others to his eclectic interests.
For Webb’s Cell Series, he shares the following: “This series of artwork rings from my inspiration of Albany and the mysteries of West Texas. I had a show in Lubbock about 10 years back and spent a lot of time traveling the Bankhead Highway through Albany with all of its culture, spiritual definition and roadside attractions. It’s one big Hootenanny from town to town and it’s all the flavor of the waltz across Texas.”
The 2021 Cell Series is generously supported by McGinnis Family Fund of Communities Foundation of Texas, Kathy Webster in memory of Charles H. Webster, National Endowment for the Arts, with additional funding from Jenny & Rob Dupree.”
