Kermit Oliver is Crowned

In keeping with the momentous nature of its 65th anniversary, Art League Houston bestowed its first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award on Texas realist painter, Kermit Oliver. A TSU grad who%26rsquo;s represented by Hooks-Epstein Gallery, Oliver studied with the mythic Dr. John Biggers and was given a handsome retrospective at the MFAH in 2005; yet Oliver never forsook his day job at the post office in Waco despite international renown, including designing scarves for the house of Herm%26egrave;s. (He%26rsquo;s the only American artist to do so.) Catch Oliver%26rsquo;s canvases imbued with beauty and allegory at Art League, along with Texas Artist of the Year Rachel Hecker%26rsquo;s paradise of pop sculpture and paintings (through November 15).
