Inspired by the cowboy movies of his youth, documentary photographer Lawrence McFarland ventured out to seek some wide open spaces of his own. In solo exhibition “Landmarks: From Dodge City to Shiprock” at ASU’s Northlight Gallery, 925 South Forest Mall in Tempe, McFarland explores themes of journey and discovery with a selection of images spanning the last four decades. This isn’t McFarland’s first time at the rodeo; the 2010 Guggenheim Fellow was one of the first photographers to have a solo exhibition in the space back in the 1970s.
“Landmarks” will be the final show at ASU’s Northlight Gallery on the university’s Tempe campus (the gallery will reopen at ASU’s Grant Street Studios in downtown Phoenix during the spring of 2015). The exhibition runs through Saturday, October 4. On Thursday, September 11, the gallery is open from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, visit art.asu.edu/gallery/northlight or call 480-965-6517.
Tuesdays, 12:30-8:30 p.m.; Wednesdays-Saturdays, 12:30-4:30 p.m. Starts: Sept. 9. Continues through Oct. 4, 2014
