Angelina College Photography Instructor’s Work Showing in Texas Galleries
What began as a walk around the Angelina College campus during last winter’s snow storm has turned into a form of artistic recognition for AC Photography instructor Jan Anderson-Paxson.
Anderson-Paxson’s photograph titled, “Trees in Snow #2” was one of 58 various types of art selected from 623 submitted to be included in the “Assistance League of Houston Celebrates Texas Art 2015.” This year marks the 45th year of this annual event.
The exhibit opened January 14 at the Williams Tower Gallery located at 2800 Post Oak Boulevard, Houston, and will run through February 27. The gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The Houston gallery marks the third juried exhibition in which the photo has been displayed, with the others being in Dallas and Odessa galleries.
Anderson-Paxson has taught journalism classes at Angelina College since 2002; she also teaches classes in the Design and Applied Arts Program and works with photography students on student publications.
Anderson-Paxson earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas and a master’s degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. She was the first female television photographer in Kansas when she went to work at KARD-TV in Wichita, Kansas. She also has worked as a photographer for the Lufkin Daily News and the Diboll Free Press. She is the official photographer for Angelina College.
