Palmer said of the occasion, "The event was magnificent and I felt truly humbled to see all of these talented artists gather at one time. It is my dream for them to be self-sustaining and successful. Because of the great fortune I've been given in the art world, this is my favorite way of giving back and supporting hard-working artists." Founded in 2009, the Escapist Mentorship Program started as a casual way for a fun group of Houston artists to meet, communicate with each other about art and business while learning from Artist John Ross Palmer as a group leader. Now in its fourth successful year, the program has had applicants from all over the globe from all career levels. Palmer coaches the artists individually for an entire year on confidence, savvy business practices and professional self-promotion.
