Recently Earlie Hudnall
has experienced a groundswell of attention locally and nationally. Two months ago, during the Juneteenth celebration, the New York Times published his tender image, The Kiss, caught in the 3rd Ward in 1989 in Houston.
Earlie Hudnall, Houston’s beloved documentarian of the 3rd
Wards, has also had multiple exposures in recent art exhibitions, including the MFA Houston’s very timely exhibition, Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power
. In addition, a solo exhibition at the Houston City Hall
features many of Hudnall’s images from the 4th
Ward, the historic neighborhood west of Downtown with roots that trace back to Freedmen’s Town, settled by freed slaves.
Earlie has provided a window to the vibrant communities of color in Houston for 40 years. These neighborhoods have changed, but because of Earlie's dedication to this work, we are fortunate to have these documents of Houston's inner city, that mirror so many cities of America.
PDNB Gallery is devoting its gallery space and website to Earlie Hudnall, one of our most treasured artists that has been with the gallery since 1997.
This exhibition will feature new work, as well as older images from his career that have not been seen in the gallery since the 1990’s.
The gallery is open by appointment only during normal business hours. Masks are required for safety.
