Conduit Gallery will present "Path," a solo exhibition of paintings and lithographs by Fort Worth-based artist, Billy Hassell. The exhibition will be Hassell’s ninth solo exhibition at the gallery.

In literature, paths, or the concept of a path, have been used as metaphors to explore themes about life, especially about choices made. Robert Frost’s poem The Road Not Taken for example, from and with which the concept of "the road less travelled" is most strongly associated, could be taken literally as a story about a path not taken or metaphorically, as it most often is, as a non-conformist choice about one’s life.

By titling his exhibition "Path," Hassell employs the idea of the path to symbolize, in a general way, his own journey through life and also, and more literally, the gathering and the holding still of, some of the places he has been to and seen along the way. From his ventures, Hassell has been able to explore and depict every corner of the Texas landscape; east, west, north and south, as well as regions further afield. Through it all, Hassell’s respect and appreciation for nature are caringly rendered with his stylized and masterful compositions and palette.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through May 18.
