Fort Works Art (FWA) announced today details of its first show of 2018 — a dual exhibition featuring two of Texas’ most recognized and critically-acclaimed photographers, Laura Wilson and Byrd Williams IV.

Described as a “show about the west but a far cry from a western show,” by FWA gallery owner Lauren Childs, the exhibition will showcase the complex and highly individual perspectives of each artist while also exploring contrast and juxtaposition through pictorial essays.

FWA’s downstairs walls will feature Laura Wilson: Photographs In The West.

Praised for her ability to capture the bleak beauty of the contemporary American west, the show will include a selection of over 20 photographs from her collection. Her photographs will serve as a history of the West.

In stark contrast to Wilson’s imagery, the gallery’s upstairs space will feature the work of Byrd Williams IV.

A dark exploration of the realities of aging, titled Memory, Imagery, and Mortality, the collection includes more than 30 works that depict the aging process.

Additionally, Marshall Harris saddle prints will be available in the venue’s satellite gallery. These hand-signed leather masterpieces aim to lend a distinctly Texan element to the show, giving a nod to the history of the Stock Show and Rodeo taking place at the same time.

An exclusive opening night reception will take place on Jan. 5, from 6-9 p.m. and both Wilson and Williams IV will be on-hand to meet guests and sign books.

The exhibition will run Jan. 3 to Feb. 3, 2018 at Fort Work’s Art, located at 2100 Montgomery St.
