I will be starting out 2020 with a solo exhibition at Galveston Arts Center in Galveston, TX. This is my first documentary photography exhibition featuring photos from an ongoing project titled Indian Spirit. It documents the Port Neches-Groves Indians high school football traditions and the community who keeps those traditions alive. The photographs take an observational approach to PN-G’s unique fusion of Texas football customs and Native American cultural appropriation that has existed in this community since 1925. The title, Indian Spirit, emerges from the name of PN-G’s mascot and reflects the community’s intense commitment to their motto of “Honor, Pride, Tradition.” I can’t wait to share this project with everyone so please come out if you can and see it!
Exhibition on view January 18 – April 12, 2020 in the Brown Foundation Gallery.
Opening Reception Saturday, January 18, 2020, 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Artist talk at 6:30 PM.
