Biography from Roughton Galleries,Inc

Biography photo for William Slaughter
William A. Slaughter was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1923 and died in Dallas, Texas December 2003. His first call was to the ministry and after serving in the Air Force during WWII, he was ordained as a Lutheran pastor. This calling took him first to Lubbock, Texas, Mexico, and finally Dallas. It was during this ministry in Mexico that Mr. Slaughter began seriously to hear another call.

Slaughter began painting and exhibiting at local art and craft shows after moving to Dallas. His church members began buying his paintings and before long he knew that he was going to have to make a life changing decision between the

Ministry and art. Slaughter first belonged to and exhibited with the Artists and Craftsmen's Association of Dallas. In 1968, he was awarded first in landscape painting. In 1973, he was awarded first in still life painting.

He was mostly self taught and combined innate ability and persistence to create many Texas landscapes, seemingly everyone's favorite subject, in realist style. He also did figure paintings, still life, wild life and ethnic women and children.
