Sports & leisure are focus of PDNB's summer exhibition
Bill Owens, Sunday afternoon we get it together, 1971.


DALLAS, TX.- PDNB Gallery ipresents, Sports & Leisure, a summer group show that explores the icons and legends of sports, and the pleasures of leisure. This energetic exhibition will showcase the unforgettable moments in sports, from the Golden Era of motor sports to the iconic portraits of legendary boxer, Muhammad Ali and baseball player Babe Ruth. It will also include the playful, humorous, and candid images of Americans hard at play.

Known as the most important motor sports photographer, Jesse Alexander's images captured the thrilling Golden Era of car racing in the 1950's and 1960's. Included in the show are outstanding photographs documenting the renowned drivers, enthusiastic spectators, and high action famous races of the Grand Prix of Monaco, 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio.

Acclaimed photographer, Al Satterwhite, has photographed some of the most significant athletes in sports. Included in this exhibition are a few of his memorable portraits of the late Titan, Muhammad Ali, training at the Fifth Street Gym in Miami.

Further complimenting this dynamic show are the lighthearted and whimsical images by John Albok. Often photographing the street scenes of New York, Albok captured children enjoying the simple satisfactions of tranquil fishing, sunbathing at the beach, and happily racing by his tailor shop on the sidewalk.

Of course, this exhibition would not be complete without Bill Owen's notable series, LEISURE. After successfully documenting the development of suburban life in the early 1970's, Owens began exploring the hobbies and activities people engage in with their spare time. This study depicts familiar scenes of families camping, cookouts, and community gatherings, ultimately illustrating the ideal summer.

An assortment of curious vernacular photographs will also be featured.

Opening reception is Saturday, May 13th from 5 - 8 pm.

Featured Artists: John Albok • Jesse Alexander • Esteban Pastorino Diaz • Elliott Erwitt • Harold Feinstein • Paul Greenberg • Earlie Hudnall, Jr. • Neil Leifer • Nickolas Muray • Bill Owens • Al Satterwhite • Neal Slavin
