PLEASE, Touch the Art.

Not your ordinary gallery show! We invite you to touch the ART! We believe that art should be an interactive experience. Learn to love your new favorite piece with touch!

The show includes new works from Maya Eventov, Axiom Glass & Lonnie Hopkins Studio Jewelry, all very touchable.

Opening Reception:
Friday, October 4, 2019 11am-7pm

Show continues through October 26, 2019.

START WITH ART.

We invite you to join us as we explore all things art and design with some of our favorite locals. Susan Benjamin, owner and curator of syd entel galleries/susan benjamin glass, etc, hosts Emily Frick and Barbara Krai for an open panel discussion on how to choose art that is right for you, and then how to approach the details of designing your space around what moves you. 

Experience room vignettes that demonstrate how to incorporate art and design into every space. Start with Art and you can transform any room into a transcendent space.

RSVP. Seating is Limited.  

The lecture will begin at 1 pm and will feature a short presentation by each professional, followed by an open question and answer forum. All three presenters will also be available for consultations and scheduling for private appointments. 

Please contact syd entel galleries with any questions or for large group accommodations at 727.725.1808.

About this Event

For over 60 years, Dr. Seuss’s illustrations have brought a visual realization to his fantastic and imaginary worlds. His artistic talent went far beyond the printed page and yet, to this day, his Secret Art Collection is virtually unknown to the general public. Throughout his lifetime, Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) created paintings and sculpture, which he secreted away at the Dr. Seuss Estate.

Syd Entel Galleries will share a compelling selection of artworks from The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection at the 247 Main Street, September 14-September 29. Visitors may explore and acquire works from Dr. Seuss’s best-known children’s books, as well as The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss, a mind-expanding collection based on decades of artwork, which Dr. Seuss created at night for his own personal pleasure. Perhaps the wackiest and most wonderful elements of the collection are Dr. Seuss’s three-dimensional “Unorthodox Taxidermy” sculptures with names such as Carbonic Walrus, Two-Horned Drouberhannis, and Goo-Goo-Eyed Tasmanian Wolghast, to name a few.

Additionally, Ted’s cat was never far from his artist thoughts. He drew himself as The Cat Behind the Hat, his cat was the protagonist in several of his Secret Art paintings and, as a fun aside, many of his early advertisements and cartoons had a “cat bystander” witnessing all the action. They hinted at his adventures across the world, his reclusive sensibility despite his fame, and his penchant for the childlike fantasy and humor, which infused nearly every facet of his life.

Despite the unprecedented demand during his lifetime, no limited edition artworks were ever conceived, authorized, or created until this historic project began in 1997, six years after Geisel’s death. That year, this exclusive project put into motion a series of artworks and exhibitions, which firmly established him as one of the most iconic artistic talents of the 20th century.

Each of these Estate-Authorized limited editions has been adapted and reproduced from Theodor Seuss Geisel’s original drawings, paintings, or sculptures. Additionally, each work bears a posthumously printed or engraved Dr. Seuss signature, identifying the work as an authorized limited edition commissioned by the Dr. Seuss Estate.

In her preface to the popular coffee table book on this collection, The Cat Behind the Hat, Audrey Geisel (Ted Geisel’s widow) writes, “I’m gratified to carry out Ted’s wishes and have these works revealed to the world.” Join us for a fascinating glimpse into the unique artistic vision of Theodor Seuss Geisel!
