Coming soon to Glasstire, the legendary True Artist Tales comic strip by Scott Gilbert!! Gilbert produced the strip, a who’s who for the Houston art scene of the time, from 1989 to 2001 for the Public News, and later the Houston Press.
Stay tuned for our re-release of Gilbert’s strips chronicling the notorious story of Menil curator Walter Hopps’ alleged theft of a Julian Schnabel painting from Blaffer Gallery—did it happen? Was it true?? Find out in True Artist Tales, coming soon!!
(And catch the original drawings of True Artist Tales in a show curated by Robert Boyd, coming this November at the Galveston Artist Residency.)
