North Texas guys and gals (if any)
The Fort Worth Public Library (downtown branch) is showing work from Peter Feresten in its celebration of Juneteenth. Peter is the person that built the Tarrant County College photography program when he came here as a new graduate from Rhode Island School of Design. I have not seen the show yet but am gonna attempt to make it Saturday. For those that don't know about Juneteenth, it is a celebration of when the slaves in Texas received word that they were free. It took two years for the word to travel from the east coast and it is celebrated on June 19 every year. I have seen a lot of the images in the past and they are very well done.
