Gallery Main Street spotlights local photographer John Deaton by showcasing his solo art exhibit “Spectrum.” The exhibit opened July 11 and runs through September 8.

Deaton, who has practiced photography for 50 years, is the first featured artist at the new Gallery space located inside Plaza Tower at 110 N. College Avenue in downtown Tyler.  

“My training has been in classrooms, books, workshops, but mostly trial and error,” Deaton says. “Throughout the years there has always been the underlying drive to make images.” 

Gallery Main Street is a project of the City of Tyler Main Street Department in cooperation with the volunteers of the Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition. The Gallery opens a new juried exhibit every eight weeks.
