We hope you are as excited as we are to be welcoming the Art of Dr. Seuss back to the gallery! We welcome you to join us for a reception celebrating and showing the Secret Art of Dr. Seuss.
We will have a preview of the work starting October 3rd.
Jim Basham was reared in Fort Worth, TX. Beginning at about three years of age though school days, visual art has always been a life-long interest and study.
Jim’s selection of subjects are influenced by his life experiences. Spending weeks in the summer with his grandparents in a rural setting just south of Fort Worth, he experienced agriculture and nature’s colors first hand in the 1930’s.
Time spent: 4 semesters at Millsaps College, Jackson, eight years living in New Orleans, visit to Nathez, and Mississippi and Florida Gulf coasts have important influences on subjects selected for paintings.
Travel in European countries, especially Italy and France, have added to his appreciation of paintings as an important and beautiful record of history. Besides painting techniques, the technical aspects of painting are important to Jim. The chemistry and construction of painting are important to the durability and lasting quality of the product.
In the early 1960’s, Jim began painting by commission. As he studied and painted with successful working artists, his own assurance of success grew.
In the summer of 1983 he retired early from I.B.M and began painting full time.
Without flowering verbiage and “hype”, Jim says; “Let each painting speak for itself.”
