"2012 HCP Print Auction Exhibition"
All you Jackie O fans, be sure to catch the "2012 HCP Print Auction Exhibition." Among the pieces is Jackie Summer, a wonderful shot of the then-Mrs. Kennedy by Jacques Lowe. The 1960 color image shows a young, elegant Jackie in a simple sleeveless dress, her hair blowing in the wind. She's looking evenly into the camera, with just a hint of a smile playing on her full, pink-lipsticked lips.
The exhibition includes more recent images as well, such as standout Longhorn # 3 by Nine Francois, a 2011 inkjet print. The black-and-white photo shows a steer, tongue licking its lips as it looks up to the sky, with twisted horns sprouting from just above each ear. These and more than 80 other photographs make up the exhibit that stands until late February, when all of the pieces will be auctioned off to raise funds for the Houston Center for Photography. There's an opening reception at 6 p.m. January 20. Regular viewing hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays. Through February 23. 1441 West Alabama. For information, call 713-529-4755 or visit www.hcponline.org. Free.
Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Jan. 20. Continues through Feb. 23, 2012
