Keachi painter Travis Whitfield completes photo and soundtrack exhibit in Houston, planning multi-media exhibit in Shreveport
From those 35 mm photos and recordings he has fashioned an installation called Travis Whitfield: Further on Down the Road.
Alas, his recent exhibition of that assemblage in Houston has finished its 4-month run at Project Row House, an art center in the Third Ward.
But he is in negotiations for a site that will allow Further on Down the Road to be seen and heard in Shreveport.
About the life of rural Black Americans in the early 70's he remarked, "It is now a distant time and place."
See his photos at traviswhitfieldart.com. He says the photos are selling surprisingly well.
