Tra` Slaughter with Collector Alex Amador
Feb. 5, 2013
-- Artist John Ross Palmer proudly returned his Houston, Texas-based art gallery to the West Coast in January 2013 to showcase the Art Movement of Escapism for a second consecutive year at the prestigious 18th Annual Los Angeles Art Show! The art gallery's stand-out programming highlighted original artwork by Escapism Founder John Ross Palmer and three of the graduates of his empowering Escapist Mentorship Program: Edgar Medina (2010), Nubia Gala-Seibert (2011) and Tra` Slaughter (2012). The show was a financial coup for John Palmer Fine Art, placing four, large, original works of art: Aspens
by Edgar Medina, The Luxury of One's True Self
by Tra` Slaughter, Delightful Moments
(Featured in the LA Art Show Catalogue) by Edgar Medina and Red Connections
by Nubia Gala-Seibert. The Booth also received a vast number of notable attendees--adding tremendously to the excitement of the esteemed international art fair.
"Our second consecutive year showing at the Los Angeles Art Show far exceeded our expectations,"
says Featured Artist and Gallery Co-Owner John Ross Palmer. "We were more than pleased with sales, the beautiful fair aesthetic, the massive media promotion and mainly the throngs of crowds at the Convention Center. We sure hope to be back in 2014!"
John Ross Palmer's Art Movement of Escapism is aimed at forever destroying the stereotype of the struggling artist. His mentorship program, founded in 2009, aims to teach artists how to sell on their own, self-promote and not be tied to the traditional art gallery system. Palmer does this as a means of giving back to the art world--it is entirely free. Unlike many other artists that are concerned with the competition, John Ross Palmer sees the inherent benefit of elevating all artists to add power to the profession.
