Hal Marcus Four Seasons
El Paso Museum of Art
January 24 through March 4, 2012
The El Paso Museum of Art will exhibit the 1995 artwork titled Four Seasons of El Paso by Hal Marcus in honor of his receiving the Diabetes Person of Vision Award from the El Paso Diabetes Association which will be awarded at the El Paso Museum of Art on February 11, 2012.
The vibrant colors of this Fauve-inspired, four-panel, acrylic on canvas depict the artist’s neighborhood in four seasons from four directions at four different times of the day. Using a similar composition, each panel is anchored by the green spire of the Saint Patrick’s Cathedral and the converging lines of a central street leading to a distant vanishing point near the mountainous horizon.
The El Paso native Marcus has worked as an independent artist since 1990, has mentored many artists while maintaining the Hal Marcus Gallery from 2000 to 2010, and has also generously donated artwork from his personal collection to the El Paso Museum of Art by artists such as: Manuel Acosta, Kate Krause Ball and Berla Emeree.
Parking is available at the Convention Center Garage, Mills Plaza Parking Garage and the Camino Real Hotel for a fee. Limited metered parking is available on Main Street.
