Infrared photography exhibit, experience another side of the Texas Hill Country

There is nothing more alluring than images made with infrared photography. The end result is an alluring, ethereal looking photograph giving the image a whole new dimension.  I first came across infrared photography while visiting a gallery in Johnson City, The Watson Studio Gallery.  Carol Watson's work showcases this technique amongst other beautiful works displaying Texas as well as international scenery.  Ms. Watson recently sponsored a call for artists who use infrared photography.  These photographers will be showcasing their work in an exhibition appropriately titled, IR Dreaming.  The gallery will also be hosting a public artist reception on opening day, September 26th, from 4-8 pm.  53 images from 34 international artists will be on display.  Carol does not exaggerate when she refers to their images as “magical.”  The opening reception will feature the culinary arts of Copper Roof Gourmet Catering by Zena Stetka Howe.

Visiting an art gallery is also an inexpensive excursion for couples or families looking for something unique to see and do in the surrounding Texas Hill Country.  Johnson City offers many other things to see and do, with many niche shops hidden around its corner such as a reception at the Kirchman Gallery (also September 26) and Arts Encounters  at the Benini Sculpture Ranch .

Visit the Watson Studio Gallery and experience for yourself the "magic" Carol describes.  

The Watson Studio Gallery is located at:
