Photography Exhibition Scheduled At TWU

1/14/04


DENTON — The Third Annual Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition will be Jan. 20 through Feb. 13 in the Texas Woman’s University Fine Arts Galleries, located in the Fine Arts Building at the corner of Texas and Oakland streets on TWU’s Denton campus. The work of Victoria Hirt, last year’s solo exhibition winner, will be on view during the event.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and on weekends by appointment. A closing reception will be held Feb. 12 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Hirt’s exhibition, titled “Heautoscopy,” uses reappropriated images taken from historical references to create a modern group of digital color photographs that represent a new time.

“My work is about women and their place in the history of art and culture,” Hirt said. “As one glances through the histories, it seems that women are objectified in imagery and myth; somehow their strength is always their ultimate undoing. In my work, I appropriate images of myths and transform them so they may be re-examined and questioned.”

The Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition provides a national venue for photographic artistic expression. Photographers from throughout the United States are invited to submit entries for the exhibition.

Anne Wilkes Tucker, founder of the Photography Department at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, will serve as juror for this year’s exhibition. Tucker’s contribution to photography and the arts community is recognized both nationally and internationally. She was recognized by Time magazine as “America’s Best Curator” in 2001.

The Joyce Elaine Grant Photography Exhibition and Endowment was established by a group of TWU graduate students and is named in memory of the mother of TWU photography professor Susan kae Grant. The endowment funds scholarships for future graduate students in the TWU Department of Visual Arts.
