Opening reception Saturday, January 5, 6:30-8:30 pm
Letitia Huckaby's Bygone is a tribute to the strength, resourcefulness, creativity, faith and traditions from previous generations. However, we witness (or do we?) how contemporary times redefine our concept of family as a community and the lessons that its extinction could bring.
Huckaby holds a degree in Journalism from the University of Oklahoma, a BFA from the Art Institute of Boston, Massachusetts, in Photography, and a Master's degree from the University of North Texas in Denton. Huckaby has exhibited at the Dallas Contemporary, the Arthello Beck Gallery of the South Dallas Cultural Center, the Galveston Arts Center and the Renaissance Fine Art in Harlem, New York, curated by Deborah Willis, the McKenna Museum in New Orleans, and the Dallas African-American Museum. Public projects include a piece along the Trinity River in Fort Worth at the 4th Street Trailhead site, and at the new Ella Mae Shamblee Branch Library in Fort Worth.
