Henry Horenstein “Honky Tonk” at Newport Art Museum



Henry Horenstein’s exhibition “Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music” will be on view at the Newport Art Museum from June 9 – August 13, 2017, with an opening reception at the museum on June 8th from 5-7pm.

Henry Horenstein began documenting the country-music scene nearly fifty years ago. Having spent a lifetime around performers and fans, he has been granted access to the high-glamour back stage at the Grand Ole Opry in its heyday as well as the rough-and-tumble dive bars and family-friendly festivals. Made between 1972 and 1981, “Honky Tonk: Portraits of Country Music,” both the title of Horenstein’s series and book, includes portraits of country music legends, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Lee Lewis, Waylon Jennings, and Mother Maybelle Carter, as well as photographs that record the culture of country music with its performers, honky tonks, and patrons. As Horenstein explains, “Honky Tonk documents the changing world of both country music and American culture through images of its stars and its fans and the places where they meet.”
