DENTON — The
Woman’s Collection at Texas Woman’s University will exhibit works
by LaVerne Harrell Clark and will host a talk by the photographer and author
at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 22, in the Blagg-Huey Library on TWU’s Denton
campus. The talk and the exhibit will be in the living room area on the library’s
main floor. Both are free and open to the public.
The exhibit, titled
“Contemporary American Poets of the 20th Century: Informal Portraits
by LaVerne Harrell Clark,” runs through November and is open during
regular library hours.
Harrell Clark credits
a photo journalism class at TWU with sparking her interest in photography.
As a student, she took a portrait photo of poet/novelist Robert Peter Tristram
Coffin that later appeared in “The American Scandinavian Review”
magazine. Since then, her photo credits have appeared in a variety of magazines,
anthologies, reference works and textbooks.
Harrell Clark received
her bachelor of arts degree in journalism in 1950 from what then was known
as the Texas State College for Women. She was named a Distinguished Alumna
of TWU in 1973.
Harrell Clark is known for her informal portraits of more than 500 contemporary writers, most of whom are poets. She also is the author of several books, each of which is illustrated with her photographs.
She and her husband,
writer L.D. Clark, live in her hometown of Smithville.
