The exhibition, “The Cat Behind the Hat,” will be at the Rob Shaw Gallery Aug 26-28, and it shows a different side of Theodor Seuss Geisel
It’s definitely a unique exhibit, said Rob Shaw, owner of the gallery.
People can expect to see artwork from Geisel’s children books as well as decades of artwork from “The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss.”, which contains drawings Geisel created at night for fun, according to the press release from Scott Segalbaum.
Some of the wackiest inclusions are three-dimensional sculptures that feature such things as a “Carbonic Walrus,” a “Two-Horned Drouberhannis” and a “Goo-Goo-Eyed Tasmanian Wolghast,” the release states.
The free event also features the cat Geisel made famous in “The Cat in the Hat.” According to the press release, The Cat in the Hat became more than a recurring character, it morphed into his alter ego surfacing into many of his cat paintings.
The exhibition is presented by Georgia’s Ann Jackson Gallery. The featured limited edition replicas have been authorized by the Dr. Seuss Estate, adapted from Geisel’s original drawings, paintings and sculptures. The original artwork is at the estate and not for sale.
“Each of these Estate-Authorized limited editions has been adapted and reproduced from Theodor Seuss Geisel’s original drawings, paintings, or sculptures. Additionally, each work bears a posthumously printed or engraved Dr. Seuss signature, identifying the work as an authorized limited edition commissioned by the Dr. Seuss Estate,” Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises, is quoted.”
