John Bostwick Gallery Reception
September 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
John Bostwick’s Our Town portfolio, now on display at Courtyard Theater through 9/15/19, was inspired by Farm Service Administration photographers who fanned out across the country to record the plight of Depression-era rural and urban populations. Today’s economic, political and climate upheavals are bringing dramatic changes across our landscape. Bostwick portrays not only a fading way of life, but also our forefathers’ legacy of determination, pride, hard work and love for family. His black and white images were captured throughout Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado and Louisiana, with an emphasis on form, contrast and movement. Scenes of simple and unexpected beauty will stir memories of places you may have never been, but that we all carry in our hearts.
Come meet the artist and learn more about his work at a reception on Friday 9/13 from 7 to 9 PM, at Courtyard Theater, 1509 H Avenue, Plano.
Our Town portfolio on display through September 15.
