The Journey

His photographs have been exhibited internationally and featured in numerous publications as well as in the private and public collections of several major institutions.

For over forty years, the Houston photographer has traveled to ninety countries and all seven continents on assignment for his clients. "The opportunity to travel still excites me not only for the chance to visit new places and make new photographs," states Arthur, "but also for the prospect of adding to my ongoing life journey. For me, all of the trips I've taken have helped define me as a photographer seeking a sense of place regardless of the location."

Fayetteville Reconsidered
Sat Mar 17
Jerry Herring "Fayetteville Reconsidered"  Opening  Saturday, March 17th, 5-8pm.  Fayetteville, Texas is a small town that likes to say it represents "the way Texas used to be." The entire city is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As a matter of fact, the 345 historic structures in town outnumber local citizens. This is a town that is proud of its history and its culture, and in general, Fayetteville is happy to just stay the way it is ... a little off the beaten path and back in time. It is against this background that Fayetteville Reconsidered looks at what could be lurking in the dark shadows of the future. How would the arrival of major franchises alter Fayetteville's character? Images draw out our emotions, which is why viewers, whether they see these photos as tongue-in-cheek or foreboding, react viscerally.
