Two Dr. Seuss pieces debut this weekend

Marcus Ashley Galleries will display the art of Dr. Seuss from 1-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 9-10.

The free and public exhibit celebrates the life and the art of Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka “Dr. Seuss.” If you’ve ever read “Green Eggs and Ham” or “The Cat In The Hat,” you might think you’re familiar with Dr. Seuss. But the creations in the “Secret Art of Dr. Seuss” show a previously unseen dimension of Geisel’s art.

Geisel created the paintings and sculptures for his own pleasure; before they came to Marcus Ashley Galleries in 2007, the public hadn’t seen them. Two releases, “Lion Stroll” and “Gosh! Do I Look as Old as That,” will make their debut.

“I remember telling Ted that there would come a day when many of his paintings would be seen and he would thus share with his fans another facet of himself – his private self,” said his widow, Audrey Geisel. “That day has come. I am glad.”

Seuss representative Jeff Schuffman will be present for the exhibition to provide insights into Geisel’s artistic life, his vision and his impact on American culture.

Marcus Ashley Galleries is in Raley’s Village Center between Starbucks and Jamba Juice.
