A new exhibition will soon open up at the Lamar University Dishman Art Museum: Ghostlight, the newest collection from award-winning photographer Keith Carter.

Carter explores dark waters: the otherworldly spirits of swamps, marshes, bogs, baygalls, bayous, and fens. From Ossabaw Island, Georgia, to his home ground of East Texas, Carter seeks “the secretive and mysterious” of this often-overlooked landscape. This exhibition will feature highlights from Carter’s upcoming monograph titled Ghostlight, scheduled for release this fall by the University of Texas Press.

Admission to the Dishman Art Museum is free of charge and open to the public. Museum hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The museum is closed for major holidays.
