A Matter of Style

SUNDAY January 02, 2022
“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”
Coco Chanel
“The Black Dress” exhibit commemorates the Tyler Museum of Art’s 50 year anniversary with remarkable flair. It features classic black dresses from the Texas Fashion Collection next to Nancy Lamb’s paintings of unique social perspectives. The combined exhibit reminds us of the museum’s enduring impact on the East Texas region.
PDNB Gallery in Dallas is another venue with exquisite style. Photographer Nancy Carroll’s “Anonymous Women: Domestic Demise” series contrasts with the realistic black and white photographs of Bill Owens’ “Suburbia” series of the early 1970s. Though both use photography as a medium, they produce dramatically different results.

See Women in Suburbia at PDNB Gallery in Dallas
PDNB (Please Do Not Bend) Gallery in Dallas features two solo exhibitions by photographers Patty Carroll and Bill Owens. Through images in her “Anonymous Women: Domestic Demise” exhibit, Carroll explores the traditional and contemporary housewife role by creating scenes of exaggerated chaos.
Carroll’s creations contrast with Owens’ starkly realistic black and white prints that feature suburban life in California in the early 1970s. Both artists use humor and irony in portraying their subjects with thought-provoking results. READ MORE.
