Art Museum of South Texas Santa Classics
See Santa like you have never seen him before! Santa Classics is a new series of images created by artist, photographer, and Santa devotee, Ed Wheeler. Wheeler imagines Santa entering into the great masterworks of art, with humor and reverence for the originals. Often Santa replaces a main figure in a painting; sometimes he is added to a group composition, or may be a single human presence in a landscape. Wheeler's intent is to pay homage to the original paintings while offering art lovers an additional reason to smile. Wheeler's meticulous attention to detail, lighting, and relationships between figures lead to another kind of art experience.
Runs: November 4-December 31
