CenterStage presents artwork by Frank Armstrong

Posted 03/02/15

Frank ArmstrongThe work of award-winning photographer Frank Armstrong, highlighting “social landscapes” by mixing human presence and natural settings, will be featured as part of the Fitchburg State University CenterStage cultural series through Wednesday, April 8, in the Hammond Hall Art Gallery in Hammond Hall, 160 Pearl St.

The exhibit, “Often in a Different Landscape,” proves landscape is not necessarily defined by its scope and size; it can be defined by its relevance to its usage. Armstrong will discuss his work in a gallery talk at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, March 19. A reception will follow.

“I have been photographing for more than 50 years,” Armstrong said. “For the first decade and a half, I worked as a photojournalist working for the University of Texas, Austin, mostly supplying illustrations for various in-house and national publications.”

Armstrong began his teaching career at the Austin campus and went on to lead workshops throughout the Southwest. He currently teaches digital and analog photography at Clark University. Armstrong was awarded the Dobie Paisano Fellowship for a portfolio of central Texas social landscapes, and his monograph ROCK, RIVER & THORN, The Big Bend of the Rio Grande was published by Scotia Waterous of Canada.

Armstrong has exhibited widely across the U.S. and his work is featured in a number of permanent collections, including the University of Texas at Austin, Houston Museum of Fine Art, Worcester Art Museum, Amon Carter Museum of Western Art, and the Museum of Modern Art.
