"Images In Place: Photographs by Architect Frank Welch"
2001-11-02 until 2001-11-25
McKinney Avenue Contemporary
Dallas, TX, USA United States of America

One of the most respected designers in the Southwest, Dallas architect, photographer, and author, Frank Welch will present an exhibition of his photographs, entitled Images In Place. Welch's black and white photographs represent a time-span from the 1950s, when Welch was a student in Paris, to the present on a recent visit to New York City.

In each, whether naively or with more experience, he pursues an overall image, which is about space, time, and atmosphere (emotional or meteorological). Some of the images include architecture, some include people, moments, and/or combinations of these. To consider them as imagery alone without narrative, especially those that feature a person in the center of the composition, is a challenge indeed.

Frank Welch's photographs have been exhibited at Afterimage, Rizzoli, Allen St. Gallery, Museum of the Southwest, Midland and at Photo Fest in Houston. He recently authored Philip Johnson & Texas (UT Press, 2000). The social, economic, as well as the architectural terms of Johnson's continuing legacy in the state are candidly examined. Boston Globe critic Robert Campbell calls it the most accurate portrayal of Johnson's character yet.

Welch is currently an adjunct professor at UTA. He also serves on the Board of Preservation Dallas, and is a member of the Professional Leadership Board, College of Architecture, Texas A&M University, as well as being a member of the Advisory Council of the College of Architecture, Texas A&M University. He is also a member of the advisory board for St. Alcuin Montessori School.

The McKinney Avenue Contemporary (The MAC) offers opportunities for experimentation and for the presentation of art in all disciplines, and provides a forum for critical dialogue between emerging and established artists and their audiences. The MAC supports the artist‚s role in society, cultivates that relationship through education and innovative programming, and stands as an advocate for creative freedom. The MAC has been operated by Dallas Artist Research and Exhibition, Inc., a non-profit arts organization, since October 1994. The MAC is a member of Dallas Art Dealers Association.
