Music on Main: Through the Lens of Henry Huey
On view through September 6, 2022
We welcome the public to enjoy a walk down local music memory lane through the photography of Henry Huey and his images from Music on Main.
The day before kicking off another Music on Main season, we installed a new art exhibit in our Round Rock City Council Chamber Gallery, featuring photographic scenes from this beloved music event and downtown tradition. Local photographer Henry Huey has been on the scene for countless performances at Music on Main in Prete Plaza with camera in hand — not only as an artist, but also as a photojournalist. Henry dedicates so much of his time to portraying community events through his photography that we wanted to put the spotlight on his artistic efforts in a solo exhibit.
Much of Henry’s work can be seen within the pages of the Round Rock Leader, where he’s contributed photojournalism stories about local events at the school district, community gatherings, as well as arts and culture events. He’s also a seasoned portrait photographer. With his music photography, Henry’s watchful eye deftly captures the special moments of onstage collaboration between musicians, the electric experience of guitar solos, and in one image, a beautiful close-up view of a musician’s hands and his instrument.
In addition to his photojournalism and portraiture, Henry has exhibited his travel photography – treks to such faraway places as Antarctica and Galapagos Islands – in exhibit venues throughout Round Rock, including the Round Rock Public Library.
Music on Main is a Downtown Round Rock tradition, and local photographer Henry Huey has been there to capture the music in motion through his camera lens. This exhibit, which fittingly is presented within steps of the Music on Main stage, will be on view to the public through September 6, 2022.
