Artist Mark NeSmith Wants to Show You Where the Wild Things Are—See His Exhibit on Saturday!

Bisong Art Gallery is proud to present Texas native Mark Nesmith’s vivid, expressive oil paintings inspired by the beauty of nature and the folly of man in his first Houston area solo exhibition. Mark Nesmith spent his childhood days outside roaming the woods, bayous, and beaches of Texas. This emotional attachment to the wilderness of his youth forms the foundation for his vibrant and expressive artwork.

Mark’s paintings are an amalgam of observation, memory, and imagination. Two themes dominate his work: the innate beauty of nature and the folly of modern man. Often populated by wildlife personifying human traits, these somewhat whimsical tall tales reflect his unease with mankind’s relationship to the environment and tackle subjects ranging from war and peace to consumerism and our society’s growing reliance on modern technology and media.

Inspired by observations of people he meets in daily life and his years spent teaching public school, Mark uses anthropomorphism to create visually appealing narratives. Delivered with a dose of humor, his artwork exposes and criticizes the foibles and foolishness of modern society. Through laughter he seeks the truth. This exhibit will be on display through April 20, 2019.

Even though Carelton Courtyard Apartments in Galveston, Texas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
