Explore the self-reflective works of Houston artist John Slaby at Solipsism, the Archway Gallery exhibition in October 2021, from From Saturday 2 October to Thursday 4 November 2021.

The exhibition features a collection of paintings that Slaby has created over the past 3 years. He originally intended to do another action figure show following his sold-out 2018 show. The male gaze, but the pandemic had different plans.

With limited access to live models, Slaby turned in on himself and began with a series of self-portraits, Solipsism and Perpetual self-portrait among them. Other works venture into the hallucinatory madness of quarantine isolation, such as Pygmalion.

The exhibition will run from Saturday October 2 to Saturday October 30, 2021.

Raise funds for local mental health charities

All works in this exhibition will be offered in a silent auction, starting on opening night and ending Saturday, October 30, 2021. John Slaby will donate 50% of the proceeds from the sale to local mental health charities that will be selected by patrons by popular vote.

A similar process was used on her last show which raised over $ 10,000 for charities focused on women and children in need.
