Brentney Hamilton Recommends

PDNB is my favorite Design District gem -- in fact, I'd say it's one of the best fine arts galleries in Dallas, but that's probably because its exhibitions so frequently play to my personal tastes. "Hometown Texas" is the perfect example of that. It's rare to see rural Texans featured prominently in a gallery that also hosts brilliant artists and artwork from around the globe, but that's part of what makes art so important -- it allows us an new glimpse at diverse, exotic cultures ... even when they turn out to be our very own.

Texas is perfect subject matter for both photographer Peter Brown and journalist Joe Holley. Their recent book, Hometown Texas, explores the land and people of this vast state of Texas. They illustrate through stories and pictures how an area shapes a person and defines them as Texans. The exhibition "Hometown Texas: Photographs by Peter Brown and Stories by Joe Holley" will be on display at PDNB from Feb. 17 through May 5. Brown and Holley will sign copies of their book at the opening reception on Feb. 17 from 5-8 p.m.
