Libbie Masterson is the Curator for the Houston Center for Photography. She has been involved with HCP since 2009 in many capacities: as a Board member, Vice Chair of the exhibitions committee, and is now Curator. Founded in 1981, HCP is a nonprofit organization founded in 1981 offering year-round exhibitions, workshops, publications, outreach programs, lectures, and classes. HCP's mission is to increase society's understanding and appreciation of photography and its evolving role in contemporary culture, and produces 15 - 20 exhibitions annually on and off-site, balancing work by regional and internationally acclaimed emerging, mid-career, and established artists. HCP also publishes SPOT magazine, a bi-annual journal of photography that includes artist portfolios, interviews, exhibition and book excerpts, and highlights on HCP members' work.

Libbie is also an active exhibiting artist herself, working in installations in photography, glass, and set design for theater. She has a BFA in Glass Sculpture from the California College of Arts, has exhibited at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, and she has received the Dora Maar Residency in Menerbes, France, through the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Libbie is interested in seeing work to be considered for exhibition at Houston Center for Photography. She is interested in seeing complete bodies of work as well as works in progress that have a strong focus or artistic perspective. She currently has a special interest in work that involves scientific themes. HCP aims to exhibit work that has not been previously exhibited in Houston and the surrounding area.
