A photograph, “Corner in Koocksville,” taken by Mason artist, Robin E. Clark, is currently part of the thirteenth “High and Dry Exhibition” in Lubbock, Texas. Sponsored and hosted by the International Cultural Center at Texas Tech University, the annual exhibition displays photographs taken of the peoples and places of the world’s dry lands.
This year’s exhibition opened in late November and will continue to run through January 17, 2014. Juror for this year’s show was David Michael Kennedy, a photographer of some renown, who was commissioned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1996 to document “New Mexico’s Cultural Landscape.” The Smithsonian and many other notable institutions and collections contain his work.
Dr. Robin Clark is a retired university professor, public speaker and artist who has lived and worked in Mason for nearly nine years. She current works in a variety of photographic media and processes, both traditional and non-traditional. Clark is a charter member of the Fine Arts Association of the Hill Country.
