This exhibition explores the familiar as well as the relatively unknown aspects of Ted Geisel’s career, not only as a children’s book illustrator, but also his work as an editorial cartoonist, advertisement illustrator, military propagandist, poet, painter, & sculptor.

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 11th 7 pm – 9 pm
Houston-based artist Trá Slaughter uses portraiture to examine the modern human condition. His work explores the outward expression of our inner emotions in today’s time of social media, where everybody is somebody but we are all really nobody.
Slaughter says: “I see us all as donning a mask, or shield in order to go out and do our battles, to handle our lives. The mask never truly reveals what’s going on “behind the scenes” of our mind and emotions.”
Submissions for our 2017 Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series contest will be opening up May 30th – August 3rd!
This is a great chance for emerging artists to have their work shown on at ART on 5th this fall.
