Fotoseptiembre: Joan Frederick:So Much Art, So Little Time

Posted on Wed, Sep 9, 2009 at 4:00 AM

Release Date: 2009-09-09

After 30 years in the art world, Joan Frederick has seen a lot. Raised in Oklahoma, Frederick became somewhat of an authority on Native American art by tapping Kiowa painter T.C. Cannon (considered by many to be the “Native American Van Gogh”) for a biographical book project. Upon arrival in Texas, she picked up photography, focusing on all things Latino — costumes, cars, and culture included. While her work may follow certain geographical whims, it maintains a fresh, personal, feeling, rendering Frederick a true original. One of her photographs of a Texan woman’s leg tattoo says it well — “What you see is what you get.” Free, 5-8pm Thursday, Carver Community Cultural Center, 226 N. Hackberry, (210) 207-2719,
