Gathering Ground
Anna Collette

October 2, 2014 – February 6, 2015
Opening Reception: October 2, 5–7pm

Gathering Ground is a series of photographs made in the Onion Creek area of Austin and represent the beginning of Collette's exploration in her new environment as a recent transplant to the city. They capture the staggering beauty of damaged trees following the October 2013 floods in south Austin. Collette leverages her medium to register images narrowly perceptible to normal vision and, consequently, our conception of the natural world.

Anna Collette joined the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin as an Assistant Professor in Photography in 2013. Collette received her MFA from the Yale School of Art and her BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art. She lives and works in Austin, Texas.

Jeff Williams

From 2006–2008, he was a fellow and artist-in-residence at the Core Program at The Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
