In the latest exhibit from the Houston Center for Photography, view work by six photographers in an exploration of guns through their aesthetic qualities as well as their implications.

[Organizer's description:]In light of recent events, conversations about the gun's visibility, accessibility, and impact in our society have become ever-present. Photographs of guns and gun-related violence have been important in shaping these dialogues across the political spectrum. Sight Lines highlights this discourse through the work of six photographers who each explore the various cultural implications of the gun from its aesthetic qualities to the wounds it leaves behind.

From digital to alternative processes, Learning Curve 9 highlights the various educational programs that HCP offers in its Learning Center through the work of its students. Student submissions were juried by Jason Dibley, Collections Manager, Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

All exhibitions are on view September 16 - November 13, 2016
Opening Reception 5:30-8:00pm
