A legend in the classroom, Lee Baxter Davis taught fine art graphics at East Texas State University (now Texas A & M Commerce) for over thirty years and was chairman of printmaking. His talents and teachings inspired generations of artists throughout the U.S.
This group show is the companion to his retrospective and features art by Mr. Davis's former students, from the original "Lizard Cult" artists of the 1970s through students he inspired until his retirement in 2004. Mr. Davis's artistic progeny have since inspired others; works by artists taught by Mr. Davis's students reveal his indelible impact and will also be exhibited. Participating artists include Steven Barker, JooYoung Choi, Tom Clark, Georganne Deen, Kayla E., Steve Fuqua, Trent Hancock, Ric Heitzman, Lawrence Lee, Greg Metz, Jeffrey Miranda, Robyn O'Neil, Leslie Pippen, Christian Schumann, Linda Stokes, Katherine Taylor, and Joachim West.
