Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art

"Glimpses of the Past: Bessie Dean Parr"


This exhibit contains over 200 images that were stored and forgotten in open wooden ammunition boxes in a barn for almost 100 years in Collierville, once a small town and now a suburb of Memphis. The photographer, Bessie Dean Parr was revolutionary in her use of photography, opening her studio to access by everyday citizens from the area regardless of class or race. The result is a remarkable collection of work that presents the small-town South from the early 1900‘s in a way that can’t be seen via a modern lens.
Many of the glass-plate negatives that Parr used suffered extreme water damage and in many cases were completely gone, leaving just the blank glass-plates. Thanks to the careful cleaning and documenting by amateur photographer, Rick Broer, his wife, Jill, and eventually their daughter, Katherine Broer-Parr, this collection of photographs has been saved, giving us a glimpse of the past that resonates far beyond Tennessee.

Five Points Museum of Contemporary Art is located at 1201 North Moody in Victoria, TX. Normally, during exhibitions are open to the public 12-5pm Wednesday through Sunday. Admission at the museum is always free.

The Nave Museum

"IMAGES OF SOUTH TEXAS" by linda lamantia

September 8, 2023

The Nave Museum will present an exhibition of works by Laredo-based Texas artist Linda LaMantia from September 8th through October 29th, 2023. The exhibit, titled “Images of South Texas”, will convey the love LaMantia has of capturing the beauty of her home state. Her paintings depict the “wonders and delights” of everyday life, using vibrant colors in combination with lights and darks to create bold, bright, lively pieces, often with “a bit of whimsy.” Having found inspiration from her desire to depict her nine grandchildren on canvas, she has amassed a collection of works capturing familial human subjects, native plants and animals, and coastal and rural South Texas landscape scenery that evokes a sense of nostalgia for the simple pleasures of life.

The Nave's hours of operation are Tuesday-Friday 12 Noon to 5pm. Saturday & Sunday 12 Noon to 4pm
There is never a cover charge but donations at the door are always welcomed.

Next Exhibit: Jayne Duryea November 17, 2023 through January 7, 2024
