W.A. Slaughter was born in 1923 in San Antonio and died on December 2003 in Dallas, Texas. Starting his adult life by serving in the Air Force during WWII and then ordained as a Lutheran pastor, Slaughter never lost his passion for sketching and painting. Mostly self-taught, Slaughter combined realist style with innate persistence and ability to create many gorgeous Texas landscapes blanketed with bluebonnets. He also painted wildlife, ethnic women and children, figure paintings, and still life.

His collections have been featured in Texas Home and Connoisseur magazine and Southwest Art Magazine and showcased in Texas Credit Union, Mr. and Mrs. Roger Staubach, The Honorable Roy Huffington, Baylor Medical Center, Clarice Tinsley and other prominent Dallas area homes.

Southwest Gallery has been providing Dallas with the largest collection of fine 19th to 21st century sculptures and paintings for over 50 years. Hundreds of artists have had their work displayed in the gallery. The styles of the gallery include pop art, contemporary, antique, landscape, Texas landscape, wildlife, western, sculpture, graphics, realism, seascape, impressionism, traditional, surrealism, still life, figurative, Russian impressionism, and Boulevards d’Europe and are all displayed in the 16,000 square foot showroom. The hours of the gallery are Tuesday to Saturday, 9 AM – 6 PM and Sunday, 1 PM – 5 PM. The gallery has free admission and no appointment is necessary.
