ASX.TV: Terry Evans – “Artist Talk” (2011)

Photographer Terry Evans is nationally regarded for her compelling images of the prairie. In fall 2011, the Ulrich presented her latest body of work in a distinguished career focused on the Kansas landscape. This talk revealed the artist’s passion for the land and anecdotes about her project. With less than 50 residents, Matfield Green is nestled in the Flint Hills just over the horizon to the east of Wichita. Evans’ lyrical images frame this rural community in the subtle beauty of the Kansas prairie. Evans first came to national attention for her aerial photographs of the Tallgrass Prairie in Kansas in the 1970s and 1980s. And when the Nature Conservancy rounded up the leading photographers for a 2001 project on the last great places, Evans was in the elite roster with Annie Liebovitz, Lee Friedlander, Sally Mann, and esteemed others. The Guggenheim Foundation gave her its prestigious artist award in 1996. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City is now working on the artist’s retrospective for 2012.

Terry Evans’ Buzz-Worthy Art Talk, titled “Matfield Green Stories” and sponsored by the Ulrich Museum of Art, was held in conjunction with “Oz: Kansas Creative Culture at 150,” a multi-day symposium taking place at the Ulrich and the Wichita Art Museum that highlighted Kansas art and artists. Evans spoke at 6 p.m. Friday, November 18, 2011, in 210 McKnight Art Center West in the School of Art and Design at Wichita State University.
