Grit and Glory: Six-Man Football Photographs by Laura Wilson
January 30 – April 23, 2011
The Meadows Museum will present an exhibition exploring the regional tradition of six-man football. Acclaimed photographer Laura Wilson became intrigued by six-man football in 1991, and spent the next eleven years taking thousands of pictures of six-man games in towns throughout Texas. Using a pared down technique meant to match the intensity and directness of the sport itself, Wilson’s photographs convey the spirit of the sport and the passion for the game. The exhibition, which includes 31 images, explores the significance of the sport to Texas, and features images included in Wilson’s book, Grit and Glory: Six-Man Football. Read more

Master illuminators of manuscripts, utilizing the finest materials, created works of intricate detail and jewel-like brilliance. Working on velvety skins of translucent parchment artisans enlivened their pages with complex decorative schemes embellished with delicate leaves of hammered gold, and images rendered in luminous pigments from the semi-precious stones lapis, azurite and malachite, rare colored earths and exotic, imported dyes. Join artist, Sylvana Barrett, in an intimate, first-hand examination of these rare, historic materials and techniques. Preparation of paint, the painting process itself and the technique of leaf gilding on handmade parchment will highlight the demonstration.

The history of music in the Cathedral of Toledo is rivaled in importance in Spain only by that of the Cathedral of Seville.
