The Coors Western Art Exhibit and Sale opened to the public last night at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, and I'm gratified to be a part of it. Here's a quote about A Handful of Dust by the curator.
“Part of our mission with the Coors Show is to educate people on what it really means be a Westerner, to work the land, raise livestock and make a living at it. Allen’s work allows us to have this conversation, and beautifully so. But beyond the conversation, these photographs—stills from his documentary “A Handful of Dust”—bridge the reality of ranching with fine art, not in a romanticized way, but in a very real, honest and humble way that resonates a truth about the West.” Rose Fredrick, curator, Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale
