Photographer Carolyn Brown is a well-respected photographer who has worked around the world shooting the architecture and world around us, including stints in Mexico, Egypt and the Caddo Lake region. Her books include:Dallas: Portrait of a City, Houston: Simply SpectacularandUpper Egypt. Exhibitions have included one person shows at Craighead Green Gallery, Afterimage Gallery and the BathHouse Cultural Center with installations at the Omni Dallas Hotel and UTSW Medical Center. Her artistry has earned her awards from AIA Dallas and Preservation Dallas among others.

An exhibit of her Middle East work is planned in 2015 at the Dallas Museum of Art with the O’Donnell Art History Institute at the University of Texas at Dallas. The exhibit will be arranged and curated by Dr. Richard Brettell, Founding Director and Sabiha Al Khemir, Islamic Specialist.

She lived in Egypt in the late 1960's, early 1970's, and came to Dallas in 1971. Dallas' Fair Park was instantly the most remarkable Dallas site she could find, not unlike the ancient sites she loves in the Middle East. She says that it felt almost familiar. Carolyn has photographed Fair Park extensively throughout its restoration process and she will take us through these images, as well as showing how her work in Egypt has inspired her work here in Dallas. 

Cost:$10 donation requested at the door.
