DREW CONRAD: COWBOYS, LOVERS, LOSERS & NOBODIES
(January 24 2009 - March 28 2009)
“The idea of the American male is something more of a myth, a legend and the silver screen than it is the actual realization of the quintessential man. It is an unobtainable standard handed down from father to son and men to boys, an unbearable mantle. An American Dream in which masculinity and manhood manifests itself from childhood backyard Wild West showdowns to adult laments of the good old days. It is a complex idea of heroes, icons, death, obscurities, anxieties, achievements, trophies, bravado, machismo, cowboys, lovers, losers and nobodies. It is masculinity at it’s best. It is me at age twenty-nine.” -Drew Conrad

Bill Daniel: SUNSET SCAVENGER
(March 28 2008 - April 19 2008)
Sunset Scavenger is part of an on-going project by itinerant filmmaker and photographer Bill Daniel. This installment of the project is anchored by large-scale black and white silver prints of post-utopia California hippie houseboats and post-Katrina Louisiana landscapes. The dialogue between landscape and survival also plays out in dozens of smaller photos that portray a world in mid-collapse.
The show’s densely packed walls become an expanded travelogue and scrapbook of Daniel’s nomadic explorations of the ratty margins of the southwest American landscape. The exhibition contains a range of photo prints from 40"X60" to 4"X5", found objects, signage, and will include a looped video segment from Daniel’s in-progress film, Sunset Scavenger, a Creative Capitol sponsored project.
Daniel’s previous work includes “Who is Bozo Texino?”, a documentary film on the secret history of hobo graffiti, and “Texas Punk Pioneers”, a photo documentation of the early Texas punk scene. Photographs from this project have been included in the new book, Hamburger Eyes, published by Powerhouse in March.
