Photography Exhibit at UNT on the Square

Images showcase rural life in Texas

Two exhibitions, which are running concurrently, are Diane Williams: Life on the Blackland Prairie, featuring photographs of rural landscapes of that area, and Bankston, Shugart and Stryker: Horse Country Photographers, which depicts life in the Quarter Horse industry. The exhibitions are sponsored by the UNT Institute for the Advancement of the Arts and the UNT Libraries Special Collections.

Williams documented buildings and landscapes of the Blackland Prairie, the agricultural region that runs from the San Antonio area to the Texas-Oklahoma border. Williams photographed buildings from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Bankston, Shugart and Stryker: Horse Country Photographers focuses on the Quarter Horse ranching industry in the North Texas region. The images were shot by Ray Bankston, Don Shugart and John Stryker and archived in the UNT Libraries.
