Photographers Open Show at EDOT Gallery
Carrie Engerrand and Randy Schormann open a photography exhibit at EDOT Gallery, 1225 Texas St., Houston, March 2 - April 29, 2011. An artists’ reception will be held March 4 from 5-7 p.m.
Engerrand’s images come from a pilgrimage to Europe where she began to explore her religious roots. “I found that while I was in the middle of the most religious places in the world, I was truly inspired,” she said. Her photographs represent what she saw and experienced during that trip.
Schormann’s images are from his book, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church: a History in Photographs, and depict the different crosses on the church’s campus. “Each image was chosen to, not only show the beauty of St. Paul’s, but illustrate the diversity of the crosses at St. Paul’s … [bearing] witness to God’s supreme sacrifice for all of us in the symbols of his cross,” Schormann said.
Carrie Engerrand was born in 1986 in Houston, Texas. She recently graduated from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth with a BA in Art History and is currently pursuing a graduate degree at the University of St Thomas, Houston. She studied photography and art at Lorenzo de’ Medici in Florence, Italy, in the fall of 2008. Past exhibits have been an Exhibition of Student Work at Texas Christian University in 2009 and Diverse Images at Te House of Tea in Houston in 2008. Her photography has been published in the 11407 magazine at Texas Christian University in the Spring of 2009.
Randy Schormann earned a masters in life sciences and education from Indiana State University and worked as a biology teacher in community college before a career change to administration. He discovered a passion for photography while working with the campus public relations. Following a move to Waco, TX in 1976, Schormann worked in faculty/staff professional development, and helped to create the University Center at McLennan Community College. In his spare time he taught photography. Retirement brings time for motorcycling the back roads of Texas and more time to make photographs. Schormann’s photographs are featured in The Historical Markers of McLennan County. He authored and photographed the images in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church: A History in Photographs – from which the 12 images in this display are taken.
