Description: <p>For over 60 years, Dr. Seuss&rsquo;s illustrations have brought a visual realization to his fantastic and imaginary worlds. His artistic talent went far beyond the printed page and yet, to this day, his artistic talent is virtually unknown to the general public. Throughout his lifetime, Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) created paintings and sculpture. EC Gallery will share a compelling selection of artworks from The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection at the EC Gallery, Solana Beach. Visitors may explore and acquire works from Dr. Seuss&rsquo;s best-known children&rsquo;s books, as well as a mind-expanding collection based on decades of artwork. The concept drawings included in this historic exhibition offer a rare, behind-the-scenes view into Theodor Seuss Geisel&rsquo;s (aka Dr. Seuss) artistic process. They exemplify the transformative power of ideas and how, in one quick stroke of a pencil, ideas can change the world. With simply a pencil, paper, and his trusted drawing table, these never-before-seen characters passed from the ethereal to the tangible in a series of frenetic, bold, and highly impulsive concept drawings. These were dress rehearsals. They were the first spark of an idea and marked the inception of such iconic characters as The Cat in the Hat, Horton, and Sam-I-am. Opening reception May 25, closing June 1.</p>
