FEBRUARY — MARCH 2004
TEXAS PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY MEMBERS SHOW
SOUTHWESTERN & MEXICAN PHOTOGRAPHY COLLECTION
Juried by Austin-based photographer, screenwriter, film producer, and gallery founder Bill Wittliff, this year’s exciting Members’ Only Show from the Texas Photographic Society features 60 images—in black-and-white and color—by over 40 artists.
This is the Wittliff Gallery’s first time hosting a TPS members’ show and one of the few instances where it has exhibited color prints, being primarily a collector of black-and-white photography.
“We’re delighted to present such a varied field of photographers,” said Wittliff Gallery curator, Connie Todd, “and to encourage and honor them with this exhibit of their excellent images. It's an added treat in our 2004 schedule for students and the community at large.”
After viewing more than 1000 entries by 193 photographers, Bill Wittliff selected three place winners and five honorable mentions from among the 60 images he chose for the show. Wittliff awarded First Place to Paper Airplanes, a print of boys at play by Wimberley photographer Robin Renee Hix. Second Place went to Philadelphia’s Laura Jean Zito for Sandstorm in the Duna, Nueba, Sinai, and Tara C. Patty from Minneapolis won Third Place for Maria and Her Grandniece.
