Dune and Swale, Indiana, September 2018 by Terry Evans has been acquired by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas! The piece is from her series titled Ancient Prairies:

Most of us know the American prairie through Hollywood films, where endless miles of dry grassland mingle with the occasional tree scattered about, as bales of hay roll across the horizon. But the prairie actually contains 80 species of animals, more than 300 varieties of birds and hundreds of plant species, making it one of America’s great ecoregions, stretching from central Canada to the Mexican border, from the Rockies to Indiana, covering more than one million miles.

Terry Evans was born in the heart of the American prairie, Kansas City, Missouri, spending most of her adult life in Salina before moving to Chicago. It is in Kansas, among the hay bales, grain silos and cultivated fields, that Terry’s passion for the great plains was born – a passion that has led her on a photographic journey spanning more than twenty years.

Terry Evans’ work is part of numerous private and public collections including The Art Institute of Chicago, The Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY), Los Angeles County Museum of Art and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. She has three monographs produced on her work: Disarming The Prairie (Johns Hopkins Press, 1998), The Inhabited Prairie (University Press of Kansas, 1998), and Prairie: Images of Ground and Sky (University Press of Kansas, 1996).
