Journal

Billy Hassell

The artworks in Journal are based on sketches and watercolors from journals and road trips around Texas and the southwest. The exhibition is also a tribute to some of the regional artists that painted in the same areas in the 1930's and 40's including; Alexander Hogue, Otis Dozier, Jerry Bywaters and Tom Lea. Locations include a view of the Rio Grande west of Taos from the U.S. Highway 64 bridge; a view of Sera Pedernal from the north outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico - the same view that Georgia O'Keefe painted in 1941- and a view of Cathedral Peak southeast of Marfa, Texas. Also included in the exhibition will be a suite of four new color lithographs featuring birds of Texas.
