Art Tour & Gallery Show in McKinney this Weekend


Brian J. Magnuson

Cowboys of the Grand Canyon

The Winter Series by  Brian J. Magnuson

Opening Night – Saturday, November 12th 7-10pm

Laura Moore Fine Art Studios in downtown McKinney, Texas, is pleased to present Brian J. Magnuson’s most recent work, “Cowboys of the Grand Canyon, The Winter Series.” This exhibition of black and white images beautifully captures the rugged Arizona cowboy working the mules down the steep canyon descent in the heart of winter during a snowstorm.

Magnuson again presents stunning classical hand printed darkroom images that take the viewer behind the scenes for a detailed look at the life of a Grand Canyon cowboy during the canyon’s wintery weather. The viewer will be given a front row seat of the dramatic views of the complexity of the canyon from the snow-covered rim to the warmer paths below.

Magnuson, of McKinney, Texas, has made many trips down the canyon over an eight-year span to document the cowboys. He has held many one-man shows across America as well as been included in several group showings. His work has been featured on the Good Morning Oklahoma television program, the Dallas Morning News and other publications. Through December 7th at Laura Moore Fine Art Studios,  107 S. Tennessee, McKinney, TX 75069.  More info at lauramooreart.com.

McKinney Art
Studio Tour (MAST)

Saturday,  November 12th 10a-5p
Sunday, November 13th 12p-4p

In collaboration with the McKinney Art Studio Tour (MAST), Magnuson will amaze all with a larger than life camera that will turn your world upside down. Come see the magic!  Experience what it would be like if you were to walk into the body of your camera as you photograph the world.

Demos of the giant camera obscura will occur on the hour and half hour during the MAST tour, Saturday, November 12th 10a-5p (last demo at 4:30p) and Sunday, November 13th 12p-4p (last demo at 3:30p).  Tickets are $5 for adults, free for 18 and under.  Even the ticket is worth framing – it’s a limited edition print by artist Lynne Hubner – while they last, then we’ll have to start using the regular kind…

Start the tour at Laura Moore Fine Art Studios gallery or at any MAST location. Tour all studios on the MAST and you will be eligible for a free gift!
