Grapevine’s Grand Gallery will present “Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy” photography exhibit. This visual photographic series features the works of talented photographer Bill Wittliff.

In the early 1970s, Wittliff visited a secluded ranch in Northern Mexico where vaqueros, or cowboys, worked the cattle using traditional methods. Wittliff photographed the vaqueros completing daily chores and ranch duties that had changed little since the first Mexican cow herders arrived. This 30 photograph series reveals the muscle, sweat and hardship that went into roping a calf in thick brush, breaking a wild horse in the saddle and other ranch duties.

Wittliff’s images evoke a powerful sense of the backbreaking labor performed to sustain life, as well as the unique characters that transformed the landscape. This effort combined with his 45 years of experience lead to a richly rewarding visual experience at Grapevine’s Grand Gallery. “Vaquero” captures a way of life that now only exists in memory and through the series. Each photo in the series features bilingual narrative text.

Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display through September 30.
