Who’s on the Wall

An unexpected gallery in EaDo

EaDo has a TON of art. Like, so much.
Graffiti walls and murals everywhere you turn.

Satori wanted to jump in and embrace the ECLECTIC, ARTFUL COMMUNITY in our new neighborhood.

In case you HAVEN’T been by, our Rusk St. office has some pretty big walls. We mean BIG.
Big enough that we are going to have our own ART GALLERY IN THE OFFICE!

In partnership with the SEAD Gallery in Bryan, TX, we’re excited to feature ROTATING ARTISTS every 10-12 weeks. These artists come from all different walks of life, and ALL ROADS LEAD TO SATORI!

Come on by any time to check out the FRESHEST TALENT on the block. Learn more about our featured artists below.

Hailey Herrera

Hailey E. Herrera is a watermedia artist, working in watercolor, watercolor batik, ink, and acrylic.

Growing up in South Korea, she has painted on and off since she was seven. She moved to the United States in 1996 for graduate studies and received her PhD at Texas A&M University, College Station, in 2004. She worked as a research scientist and lecturer for a short period before taking community art classes and then painting watercolor in earnest. She has developed a palette that is vibrant, bright and rich with incredible depth and wonderful tonal ranges. She is a co-author of the book, The Art of Painting Sea Life in Watercolor by Walter Foster Publishing. As evidenced in the book, her paintings reflect her love for the colors and proficient ability to control water.

Scott McDermott

Scott McDermott was raised in Bryan-College Station and returned to the Brazos Valley in 1992

after earning a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas. McDermott primarily works in oils with a tendency towards realism, yet his style is always progressing and evolving. A unique feature of McDermott’s work is his use of crushed steel as canvas, often in the form of wrecked car hoods. This exceptional reuse of materials allows abstraction to be directed by the canvas itself.  McDermott has continued to find success in his hometown, recently receiving the Arts Council of Brazos Valley’s award for the Artist of the Year. “My heart is here.” says McDermott, “These are my people.”
