Ft. Worth artist Billy Hassell’s crisply painted oils, watercolors and encaustics feature detailed portraits of birds, favorite subjects for this painter who once considered becoming an ornithologist. The images of birds are contrasted against lushly colorful and stylized backgrounds that sometimes verge on the surreal and that sometimes explode with patterns reminiscent of William Morris wallpaper designs. Mr. Hassell has a BA from Notre Dame and an MA from the University of Massachusetts. He has exhibited widely throughout the Southwest and in New York, and his work is included in the collections of The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, The Menil Collection in Houston, The Dallas Museum of Art, The El Paso Museum of Art, and The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

Austin artist Jimmy Jalapeeno’s large landscapes, familiar to travelers passing through Bergstrom International Airport, depict the natural beauty that abounds in Central Texas. His new works in oil and watercolor include still life paintings and portraits as well as landscapes. "Jalapeeno certainly knows how to capture nature on canvas, moving deftly from thick oils to translucent watercolors to depict familiar Hill Country scenarios. With his distinctly Impressionist technique, Jalapeeno is like the Monet of Austin, exploring the countless effects of the blazing Texas sunlight and the games it plays on streams of water and clusters of trees." (Cari Marshall, The Austin Chronicle). Jalapeeno has a BA from the University of Texas, Austin, and an MA from The University of California, Davis. He has exhibited throughout Texas.
