Artist Terry Evans is known for her photography of different landscapes, particularly those centered on the prairies, people, and artifacts of the Midwest. A native of the Midwest, Evans was born in Kansas City, Missouri. She later lived in Salina, Kansas before moving to Chicago early in the 1990s.
This traveling exhibition, Heartland: The Photographs of Terry Evans, is her first retrospective, and displays 66 photographs selected from her more than 30-year career. Evans’ images invite the viewer to explore a beautiful, intricate, and often overlooked landscape. Her work is engaging, empathetic, and evokes a sense of curiosity.
This exhibition has been organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and will run from August 25 to November 24, 2013.
The Snite Museum of Art presentation has been made possible by funds provided by the Humana Foundation Endowment for American Art.
