“In 2004, I quit my day job as a staff photographer at the Dallas Morning News to pursue freelance and fine art photography. Day one of being self- employed, I drove to Marfa with my future husband, our two dogs and my red Hasselblad and a bunch of film. I took the opportunity to slow down, wait for the light and make photography. I have continued photographing Marfa and surrounding West Texas towns over the years as an ongoing study of the landscape and light. I love trying to capture the slow desert pace and the mythical light.” - Allison V. Smith
Josef Albers (1888-1976) was an American-German artist best known for his iconic color square series, Homage to the Square, which he began in 1949 and major contributions to color theory. In 1981 Mr. and Mrs. Tony Andress gifted this set of ten lithographs from Albers’ 1965 series Homage to the Square, Soft Edge - Hard Edge to the Abilene Fine Arts Museum. This is the first time the full set of prints has been exhibited at the museum.
