Events by EventfulIlluminating Nature: Recent Paintings and Works on Paper by Billy Hassell
Organized by the TMA, Illuminating Nature: Recent Paintings and Works on Paper by Billy Hassell features close to 30 recent paintings, lithographs and mixed-media creations by Hassell, an artist noted for his large canvases and vivid color palette – including several freshly completed pieces never before seen by the public. Many of the notable works in the exhibition highlight the Dallas native’s best-known subject of birds, such as Road Runner South of Marfa, a painting the TMA added to its Permanent Collection in 2011.
Hassell selected the exhibition’s title to illustrate the complexity of his creative vision, which throughout his more than three-decade career has blurred the lines between the literal and conceptual representation of the flora and fauna of Texas.
