Bill McCullough opens in SRO March 7th

The SRO Photo Gallery at the Texas Tech School of Art has selected Bill McCullough of Austin, TX, for one of its solo artist exhibition slots during the Spring 2011 exhibition schedule. The exhibit will be shown in the SRO Photo Gallery at Texas Tech School of Art from March 7 – April 11, 2011.

McCullough’s series, Technicolor Life: American Wedding, explores the ritual of weddings in the United States. McCullough is a professional wedding photographer who has had unfettered access to the personalities and pageantry of wedding celebrations. His unique film noir style is unlike any other wedding photojournalist today. It emphasizes the mysterious, more ambiguous side of modern life.

McCullough holds a BA in Economics from the University of Texas at Austin, and is the winner of 78 international awards for his work. He was recently featured in Spot Magazine and PHOTONEWS.

The art building is located at 2802 18th Street (near the corner of 18th Street and Flint Avenue, just east of the architecture building on the Texas Tech campus). Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. The galleries are closed on university holidays.

On Mondays through Fridays, visitor parking is available for $1.20 per hour in the small lot adjacent to the art building and on the fourth floor of the Flint Avenue Parking Facility. Parking is free on weekends. Admission is free.

The exhibitions, speakers, and related programs at the Texas Tech University School of Art are made possible, in part, by generous grants from the Helen Jones Foundation and The CH Foundation. Additional support comes from Cultural Activities Fees administered through the College of Visual & Performing Arts.
