    Trenton Hancock Talk at Lester Mark's House

    6:30 - 8:00 p.m.2808 Rice Blvd., 77005
    Program events



    On Wednesday, February 7, 6:30 p.m., join Visual Arts Alliance and Trenton Doyle Hancock for an informal discussion about contemporary art in general, and Hancock's work specifically. The talk will take place at the home of Lester and Penelope Marks. Located at 2808 Rice Boulevard, Houston 77005, their home showcases one of the top art collections in the country. Marks says they "have proudly been huge patrons of Trenton since his beginnings."

    For almost two decades, Trenton Doyle Hancock has been constructing his own fantastical narrative that continues to develop and inform his prolific artistic output. Part fictional, part autobiographical, Hancock’s work pulls from his own personal experience, art historical canon, comics and superheroes, pulp fiction, and myriad pop culture references, resulting in a complex amalgamation of characters and plots possessing universal concepts of light and dark, good and evil, and all the grey in between.  In the fall of 2017, Hancock was selected by Houston Art League as their Artist of the Year. The new Moody Art Center at Rice has also featured his work.

    There are 25 open seats for the event. Reservations are being take at: A waiting list will be created and entry will be allowed on a first arrival basis. Light snacks will be available.
