Current Exhibition

Geoff Winningham New Work 

November 18 - December 3, 2017 

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 18th 6pm - 9pm


Winningham’s distinctive photographic style has brought him international recognition. His work is found in most major collections in the United States, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and the major art museums in Texas.

Geoff Winningham’s career as a still photographer, filmmaker, and journalist has had many facets. He joined the faculty of the Department of Art and Art History at Rice University in 1969, and over the next decade he published three books, Friday Night in the Coliseum (1971), Going Texas (1972), and Rites of Fall (1978), his now classic study of Texas high school football. Later publications include A Place of Dreams (1986) and In the Eye of the Sun: Mexican Fiestas (1996). 

Past Exhibitions

Tangential Photography  | Inaugural art exhibition at Flatland September 15th -November 2017

Flatland, the shape that comes into being when two dimensions collide.

The photographic image leaves a wake in its process of creation. Adam Donnelly and Meggan Gould travel backward along their respective photographic practices, they use the physical and digital remnants left behind by the process of making a photograph as a starting point for the creation of new work. Rather than feeding these remnants back into the photographic process, they move tangent, using the refuse as a primary source to explore drawing and painting. This process shifts their point of creative focus and skill from the eye to the hand. While visually distinct from photography, the resulting drawings are structured by the very photography-based elements of chance and process.
