Upcoming Exhibition The Llano Estacado by Ginger Sisco Cook:
May 31-June 28
Ginger Sisco Cook is a fine art photographer living in Paris, TX. Ms. Cook earned a master of fine arts degree in May 2014 from TX. A& M University—Commerce and is currently serving as an adjunct professor in photography, art appreciation and graduate studies.
The Llano Estacado Series began in 2006 as an exploration of how a native daughter views and expresses her memories of growing up on the High Plains of West Texas and Eastern New Mexico.
Works from the series have been included in several notable exhibitions such as her Solo Exhibitions, The Llano Estacado Project, at the Lea County Museum, in Lovington, New Mexico, the Gaines County Museum in Seagraves, TX, . Selected images have been exhibited at The Longview Museum of Fine Arts, in Longview, TX., the Women’s Art Museum, at Fair Park in Dallas, TX., the Amarillo Museum of Art, Museum of the Big Bend in Alpine, TX. and the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art in Brownsville, TX.
My work is about exploring the eye of a woman in landscape photography. I am interested in researching whether or not certain sensibilities are uniquely feminine when photographing landscapes.
This exhibition includes 18 photographs from my Llano Estacado Project.
I grew up on the Llano Estacado. It is the land of my birth and I am an adoring native daughter. I photograph the people and the places I remember from when our family traveled to visit both sets of grandparents and twelve sets of aunts, uncles and cousins who lived from one end of the high plains to the other. It was from the back seat of an old 1955 Oldsmobile Holiday Hardtop that I grew up observing the land.
