Portraits are failed descriptions, inevitably flattening our shared and shadowed time and space. While photographic mimesis remains implausible, expression itself is an undeniable truth, wrought in and by communal-but-individual experiences. The following acts are like looking at the back of an immovable mirror, accessed only through self-propelling imagination and care.

Artist Bio

Anthony Francis is a multifaceted visual artist filmmaker, educator, and writer based in San Antonio, Texas. He makes work for exhibition and art for commerce outlets. After receiving an English degree and going on to earn a M.Ed from The George Washington University, he studied at the Academy of Art University to gain an MFA with a concentration in photography. His work and research interests are concerned with opacity, love, and portraiture's politics connected to the photographic apparatus. He has spoken and shown work internationally and his work is in private and public collections.




The McCormick Gallery is dedicated to providing educational experiences for our students and a cultural haven for the Midland Community. Our mission is to exhibit exciting works of contemporary art from a variety of artists. A diversity of visual art mediums is represented as we attempt to make contemporary art accessible and enjoyable to all members of our community.  During their visit, featured artists frequently give lectures, critiques, and demonstrations which offer unique insights into the artistic process. Each year we feature group and solo exhibitions, including the annual Midland Arts Association Fall Juried Art Exhibition as well as our Spring and Fall Student Art Show which celebrates the creative endeavors of Midland College students enrolled in studio art classes.
