May 22, 2014 (FPRC) -- On the afternoon of Saturday, May 3rd, the John Palmer Art Gallery & Studio hosted a Kentucky-Derby-themed 3rd Annual Gathering of Escapists. This historic event was created in 2012 to honor all the Escapist Artists, past and present, by allowing them to visit and network with each other and Palmer's top collectors in an upbeat and supportive setting. After 2013’s very successful Refuse to Struggle campaign to erect an Escapist Artist Gallery & Studios that many Escapists were instrumental in executing, this get-together was particularly meaningful as the Escapists were able to witness much building progress of the ultimate-artist-training-ground that is being constructed in their honor at 1218 Heights Boulevard.
For a second year, the Gathering of the Escapists has coincided with the run for the roses at Churchill Downs—giving the event a glamorous Kentucky Derby theme. Ladies donned huge hats, guests sipped on mint juleps and all screamed at the large screen in Palmer’s Art Studio as California Chrome took the first leg of the Triple Crown in the 140th Running of the Kentucky Derby. The occasion is certainly perfect for one of Palmer’s greatest passions in his art creations, horses. Equestrian-themed artwork dominated his Gallery & Studio complex and many were placed with new collectors to support the ongoing construction of the empowering Escapist Artist Gallery & Studios.
Palmer said of the event, “I am so proud of all my Escapists and I am just thrilled for them to all see the new addition. I can’t wait for its completion so the current class will work on-site while receiving our business coaching." Founded in 2009, the Escapist Mentorship Program started as a casual way for a fun group of local Houston artists to meet, communicate with each other about art and business while learning by example from Artist John Ross Palmer as a group leader. Now in its sixth successful year, the program has had applicants from all over the globe at all career levels.
