Yeah I saw a show included his work at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta about ten years ago. Did the museum used to have a satellite section with photography on one floor and "folk art" on the other? I do remember an afternoon of epiphany with work by Traylor and others in one room and discovering for the first time the photographs of Harry Callahan in another..
