October 20, 2012–January 27, 2013

This featured exhibition marks the first career retrospective of Terry Evans (b. 1944), one of the nation's finest landscape photographers. Evans—a Kansas City native—is widely recognized for her views of the Midwest prairie, its people, and its artifacts.

In recent years, she has also explored other subjects: natural history museum specimens, the city of
Chicago, the steel and oil industries. Her life's work is characterized by an abiding sense of curiosity and wonder, and a warm, empathetic engagement with her subjects. Evans' photographs reflect her lifelong
interest in the intricate and often complex relationship between our land and our lives.

This exhibition will include 100 color and black-and-
white photographs spanning Evans' full career, beginning in 1971 to the present. It will be
accompanied by a fully illustrated, 250 page exhibition catalogue.
