It will be a show honoring the best in the great state of Texas, and Trenton Doyle Hancock had it coming. He’s an artist who reached his midcareer point with all the honors due someone who draws, paints and sculpts the way he does. Not only does his work speak to the experience of the black diaspora, but it’s deeply woven into the fabric of pop culture and avant-garde cartoons. “I’ve always owned my position as political figure; the black body is politicized, even though I’m speaking a universal language. The work helps me get through the day,” Hancock says.

The 2017 Texas Artist of the Year Exhibition: TEXAS: 1997-2017 Trenton Doyle Hancock opens with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, with an introduction by Glassell School of Art director Joseph Havel at 6:30 p.m. Continuing 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. September 22 through November 11. Art League Houston. 1953 Montrose. For information, call 713-523-9530 or visit artleaguehouston.org. Free.
