Peter and Margaret de Wetter Gallery

See Texas through the lens of El Paso native photographer Richard Baron. This is the first museum showing of thirty-nine select works from his most recent series. In 2015-18 Baron traveled Texas in search of material ranging from historic monuments and new superhighways to abandoned storefronts. Capturing his subjects in black and white in a standard landscape format, Baron combines a modernist sense of design with a love for both iconic and unexpected Texas cultural markers—from the Cadillac Ranch outside Amarillo to a Texas-shaped waffle served in a motel restaurant in Corpus Christi.

Support for this exhibition is provided by Texas Commission on the Arts.
