Pass It On: Photographic Portraits of Master Texas Folk Artists 

Texas Folklife's program Apprenticeships in the Folk Arts brings together master artists and apprentices in collaborations that encourage each to preserve and develop their traditions. The exhibition Pass It On celebrates the lives, talents and commitment of Texas' master folk artists and the apprentices who have worked with them. In the faces of these amsters we see the satisfaction they have gained from their lifetime involvements with particular traditional arts. We see as well the sacrifices some have has to make as members of certain folk groups. Finally, they wear in their expression sthe hope that they are handing on a precious legacy to new minds, hands, feet and voices who will in their turn pass it on for years to come.
