On March 1st, The TX Studio opened its doors to Dallas as a Natural Light
Rental Studio. The  founders built The TX Studio to give Dallas’ creative community their own place to create. Available for hourly rental, The TX Studio is the first Dallas natural lightphotography studio equipped with rolling black and white backdrops, seasonal paper rolls, andhandmade tabletops.

Today, the founders are excited to announce the latest way they are fulfilling the studio mission:offering Dallas’ first ‘Creative Residency’ Studio Program.

This program will provide one creative individual each month with access to The TX Studio–free of charge.

“We’ve only been operating two months and the overwhelming support from the creative community has already been remarkable,” says co-founder, Doug Klembara. “We want to showDFW that we care about quality, creative work–and we’re serious about investing in it.”

Kelsi Klembara, Co-Founder and studio manager shares how The TX Studio ‘CreativeResidency’ program came to life. “We found out that one of the photographer’s using the space, Allie Norado, pooled funds with her friends to cover their total rental cost. They pulled off one of the most inspiring shoots we’ve had so far. After that, Allie approached us to see we were doing any type of ambassador program.” This prompted the TX Studio team to begin thinking about how to use The TX Studio to encourage rising creatives who want to make something beautiful.

The TX Studio is proud to announce that Allie Norado will be the first resident of this monthly program. Each resident receives 3 half-day shoots with access to both studios for free (valued at$1200). At the end of the year, the TX Studio will host a gallery event featuring the best of each resident’s work.

The application process for the May Creative Residency is now open and available to the public here: thetxstudio.com/residency.
A new resident will be announced during the final week of each month.

Amon Carter Digitizes 35,000 Works from American Photographers

Amon Carter Museum of American Art Digitizes More than 35,000 Artworks with Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities

September 11, 2014

 

FORT WORTH, Texas—The Amon Carter Museum of American Art announces that it has cataloged, digitized and published online more than 35,000 artworks of eight prominent American photographers of the 20th century—Carlotta Corpron (1901–1988), Nell Dorr (1893–1988), Laura Gilpin (1891–1979), Eliot Porter (1901–1990), Helen Post (1907–1979), Clara Sipprell (1885–1975), Erwin E. Smith (1886–1947) and Karl Struss (1886–1981).

This project was made possible by a $75,000 digitization grant the museum received from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in 2012.The Amon Carter owns the archives of these photographers, and the newly digitized works include all of the prints in these collections. Also digitized are 12,000 very fragile glass negatives, nitrate negatives and autochromes. Most are never-before-seen negatives that the museum is unable to display in the galleries due to format and fragility. The grant also allowed for the creation of new online collection guides that include biographical information, exhibition history, interpretative information and finding aids, which can be accessed here.

“We are tremendously pleased that the NEH grant allowed us to open the photography collection to the public in new ways,” says Andrew J. Walker, director. “The artworks of these eight artists reflect the range of American diversity in the 20th century, and the collection as a whole offers a singular view into the lives of working Americans. Also, with the addition of these works, we now offer a more comprehensive virtual guide to our collection, with a total of 60,000 works available online.”

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art houses one of the country’s major collections of American photography. The holdings span the history of the photographic medium in America and include works ranging from one of the earliest daguerreotypes produced in this country to contemporary digital prints. Although gallery space is devoted to photography exhibitions that rotate several times each year, thousands of images remain in storage. Providing virtual access opens eight significant archives as a continuous resource to all audiences.

“This NEH-supported initiative is the Amon Carter’s largest—and most comprehensive—digitization project to date,” says Jana Hill, collection information and imaging manager. “We are thrilled to bring the work of these eight photographers to the public in a meaningful way, particularly since many of the works are too fragile for exhibition. By offering new insights into the lives of these eight artists and providing context for their work, we hope this material will serve as an important educational resource for students, teachers and scholars in the humanities.”

Museum staff and scholars will talk about each of the eight photographers in the Amon Carter’s archives during an hour-long, live Google Art Talk on October 9 at 11 am CST. The presentation is part of Google’s Hangout On Air series and is free, interactive and accessible. It can also be viewed later on YouTube.
