One of the most important landscape photographers of the second half of the 20th Century will be profiled at PDNB Gallery with a solo exhibition. Frank Gohlke's black and white photographs from Texas will be featured, including his famous Grain Elevator series.
Frank Gohlke (b. 1942, Wichita Falls, TX) is well known for his large format landscape work that debuted in 1975 in the exhibition and catalog, "New Topographics: Photographs of a Man Altered Landscape", at the George Eastman House in Rochester, New York. Along with Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Bernd and Hilla Becher and Stephen Shore, Frank Gohlke's photographs gave us a novel approach to our contemporary landscape. This approach to documenting the land altered the perception of photography in the 1970's. The medium took on a more conceptual approach.
This gallery exhibition is running concurrent to Gohlke's retrospective exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Accommodating Nature: The Photographs of Frank Gohlke.
Frank Gohlke's photographs are in major museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN. Museum solo exhibitions include the Museum of Modern Art, NY, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago.
There will be approximately thirty photographs of landscapes within Texas, also Montana, Kansas and Minnesota.

Long time Dallas resident Philip Lamb is one of the treasures of the Dallas art scene. Recent public art projects have made this artist quite notable within Dallas with his installations at the Bachman Light Rail Station, Addison and White Rock Lake, the Love Field expansion and Dallas Convention Center.
PDNB Gallery will exhibit Lamb's photographic marvels, his humorous takes on
the landscape genre. Each photograph is presented as a vignette alluding to a fictional tale. But indeed there is no photoshop here, it is all very real.
This is a must-see collection of Philip Lamb's treasures. There will also be a stone or two included in the show...
Philip Lamb's work is included in the Museum of Fine Arts Houston collection, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Dallas Public Library.
