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

The show presents a collection of paintings that Slaby created over the last 3 years. He’d originally intended to do another figure show following up on his highly successful, sold out 2018 show The Male Gaze, but the pandemic had different plans.

With his access to live models curtailed, Slaby turned inward 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 be on display from Saturday, October 2 through Saturday, 30, 2021.

Raising Money for Local Mental-Health Charities

All of the works in this exhibition will be offered in a silent auction, beginning on opening night and closing on Saturday, October 30, 2021. John Slaby will be donating 50% of the sale proceeds to local mental-health charities to be selected by the patrons via popular vote.

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

Opening Reception

There will be a live, in-person opening reception at the gallery on Saturday, October 2, 2021 from 5pm to 8pm. The artist will be visiting with guests at the gallery that same day from 2pm through the reception.
