Billy Hassell: Migration   9/21/2007 To 12/30/2007 

Art Museum of South Texas  Corpus Christi, TX

Billy Hassell pairs meticulously detailed subjects with bold, sometimes contrasting backgrounds to explore the contradictions found in nature. The subjects in his works are based on actual observation and are representative in nature.  The backgrounds, however, are more imaginative and are made to focus the viewer's attention on the primary object.  Hassell is an adjunct professor at Texas Christian University. He is also the recipient of several awards and honors, including the Anne Giles Kimbrough Award at the Dallas Museum of Art.  This exhibition presents work completed since 1993.
