Born in Beaumont, John Alexander was in Dallas in the early 1970s while studying at Southern Methodist University. Currently residing in New York, Alexander was in town for the opening of his current exhibition, The Ridiculous and Sublime: Recent Works by John Alexander, at SMU’s Meadows Museum.

It’s a beautiful show and we are fortunate to have had the opportunity for the preview and interview.
