The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection

A compelling selection of artworks from The Art of Dr. Seuss will be on display at The Factory at Franklin from May 5-7, 2017. Visitors will view works from Dr. Seuss’s best-known children’s books, and explore The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss, a mind-expanding collection based on decades of artwork that 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 like The Carbonic Walrus, The Two-Horned Drouberhannis, and the Goo-Goo-Eyed Tasmanian Wolghast, to name a few.

Ann Jackson Gallery is one of the few galleries authorized to represent The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection and they will be bringing their collection to The Factory at Franklin, for a special exhibition of this artwork from May 5-7, 2017. Art of Dr. Seuss collection specialist, Valerie Jackson, will Join us for a special presentation during the opening event.

Artworks from this historic collection have traveled to museums and galleries across three continents since its inception in 1997, with works from The Art of Dr. Seuss now hanging in collections alongside the likes of Picasso, Chagall, Warhol, and other 20th century masters.

Please join us in welcoming new artist, Mark Shattuck!

Mark Shattuck received an architecture degree from Georgia Tech in 1994, spending his senior year studying architecture in Paris, France and western Europe.  Since then he has specialized in custom home design, opening his own firm -- Cornerstone Design Studio -- in 2002. 

All the while, his passion for classical architecture and abstract art spurred a desire to blend the old and the new. By 2015, Mark began experimenting with architectural photography of iconic structures and mixed media applications to create abstracted images with archival textures and finishes. 

His art involves a 4-step process:  first, he trowels a layer of heavy plaster; next he transfers a distressed photographic image onto the plaster; then he adds a rusticated-looking paint application to finish the archival appearance; and finally, a thick glossy clear-coat emboldens the tones with a modern finish.

 

Mark will be in attendance and will be available to discuss his art and his process.

 

FREE and Open to the Public
