Landscape Lens

You gotta say Texas is picturesque. Any state that includes Padre Island and Palo Duro Canyon, the Big Thicket and Big D's skyline has got scenery to spare. Artist Kris Kistner of Colleyville often trains a camera on Texas glories—longhorns and landscapes, whooping cranes and cowboys, boots and bullets. See these and a new collection of photographs showing beloved Texas landmarks such as the Alamo, San Antonio's River Walk, the Blanco River, Gruene Hall, Luckenbach and the Stockyards. Meet the artist at the Fourth Friday Gallery Night in Grapevine from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mud, Wind and Fire Gallery, 334 S. Barton St. Call 817-251-5193 or visit
Fri., Feb. 24, 5-9 p.m.
