Quarterly Meeting

Reflections: Bastrop County Through the Lens of Bob Parvin.

Thursday, April 25, 5:30 pm reception & 6:30 presentation

Witness the timeless beauty of Bastrop County as seen through the lens of one of Texas's most esteemed photographers at the Bastrop Museum & Visitor Center's special exhibition, Reflections: Bastrop County Through the Lens of Bob Parvin. This unique showcase invites visitors to reflect on the last four decades of Bastrop County through the photography of Bob Parvin, an award-winning Texas photographer whose longtime interests in Texas history, architecture, culture, and natural heritage find means for expression through his work. More than 2,000 of Parvin's images have been published and exhibited throughout Texas and the United States, including on Texas Highways and Texas Parks & Wildlife.


Parvin skillfully captures the essence of Bastrop, illustrating how the community has transformed while preserving the unique charm and character that defines its identity. This special exhibit is not just an ode to the history of Bastrop but a celebration of the community's resilience, growth, and cultural heritage. Whether you're a local resident or a curious visitor, the exhibition promises a thought-provoking and visually stunning experience.


This special exhibition will run from April 8 through June 29 and is free and open to the public.


Join us at the Bastrop Museum & Visitor Center on Thursday, April 25, for an evening with the photographer and to celebrate the opening of the special exhibit. The reception begins at 5:30 pm, and the artist's presentation follows at 6:30. A limited number of signed prints are now available for sale in the BCHS Gift Shop. The evening is open to the public. Refreshments will be served. We look forward to seeing all current and future BCHS members there!
