The Bath House Cultural Center this weekend opens two concurrent art exhibits with one combined artists reception.

A photographic art show titled North Texas Road Trip and a print and mixed-media gallery, The Remaining Image, run from March 5-April 9.

Both kick off with a simultaneous reception, free to the public, from 7-9 p.m., March 5.

The Dead Photographers Society, 15 photo artists, roamed North Texas rural areas and captured the images included in North Texas Road Trip. According to a press release from the city’s Office of Cultural Affairs, group members “drew an arch 75 miles north from the center of the city of McKinney and selected the smallest towns and communities along the designated geographical area. After pulling out note cards with the names of the towns from a cowboy hat, the photographers departed for their different destinations with the intention of photographically recording and interpreting the landscapes and people they encountered along the way.”

The Remaining Image includes the print and mixed-media works of five artists exploring human and artistic relationships. According to the Office of Cultural Affairs, the works “may at first glance appear somewhat dissimilar in terms of the stylistic, thematic, and physical approach employed by each person. Upon further examination, however, the viewer can see that the underlying concepts and persistent interests demonstrated by all the artists give proof of the existence of unquestionable reciprocity and interconnection.”

The photographic exhibit Trashing Our Treasure also continues its run at the Bath House through April 17.
