Southside Gallery is pleased to announce our November 2019 exhibition featuring photographs by Maude Schuyler Clay and Langdon Clay. The photographs on display span the careers of both artists, showcasing works from a number of different series.
Maude Schuyler Clay was born in Greenwood, Mississippi. After attending the University of Mississippi and the Memphis Academy of Arts, she assisted the photographer William Eggleston. Her work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The National Museum for Women in the Arts, and the High Museum, Atlanta, among others. The University Press of Mississippi published her monograph DELTA LAND in 1999, which received the Mississippi Arts and Letters Award in 2000, and DELTA DOGS, which received the award in 2014. She was a recipient of the Governor’s Arts Award in 2015. Her most recent book, MISSISSIPPI HISTORY, with a foreword by Richard Ford, was published in 2015 by Steidl, who will also publish a new Landscapes book in 2019. She continues to live and work in the Delta.
Langdon Clay was born in New York City and raised in New England. He photographs around the country and beyond for shelter magazines and coffee table books. The bulk of his commercial work involves architecture, interiors, gardens and food. Good examples would be Jefferson’s Monticello by Howard Adams and From My Chateau Kitchen by Anne Willan. His art photography can be found in museums in Paris, London, New York, Chicago, New Orleans, and Jackson, MS. In 2016 Clay published CARS — NEW YORK CITY, 1974 – 1976.
