Meet Me at the Trinity: Photography by Terry Evans

August 30, 2014–January 25, 2015
Second floor

In conjunction with the exhibition Navigating the West: George Caleb Bingham and the River, the Carter commissioned Chicago-based artist Terry Evans to photograph the Trinity River as it runs through Fort Worth. Evans is one of the nation’s acclaimed landscape photographers, and her works offer Carter visitors an opportunity to think about our local river in the context of Bingham’s 19th-century work. The exhibition includes approximately 41 large-scale, color photographs that depict the river’s look and culture, including its distinct channeling and the people drawn to its banks. Evans’s photographs are in the Carter collection and can be found in the holdings of other major museums including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.
