Artist John Alexander is coming to Square Books

John Alexander will be in Oxford this September, and we urge you to check out his exhibit currently at the University Museums, “One World, Two Artists: John Alexander and Walter Anderson,” and to attend the opening reception there September 22.

Square Books will host a book signing and cocktail reception for the artist, featuring copies of the extraordinarily beautiful book, John Alexander, by Jane Livingston, produced for his retrospective exhibition at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and published by Yale University Press (Call 1-800-648-4001 to order a copy).
Alexander is a native Texan who has lived and worked in New York since the late 1970s.  His work captures -- often breathtakingly -- the power, grotesquery, violence, mystery, and beauty of nature and animals, including humans, and has been exhibited and collected widely, including in the permanent collections of the Corcoran, the Ogden, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Smithsonian, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  

To find out more about John Alexander, we urge you to visit his site and read Julia Reed’s brilliant Garden and Gun piece. Please consider availing yourself of this opportunity to meet and find out more about one of America’s greatest artists.   RH
