Stephanie-Patton-Wait

Stephanie Patton

pause is Stephanie Patton’s third solo exhibition with the gallery.

Untitled (HROW 0090), 2016 | Paint on plywood | 72 1/4 x 45 1/2 inches

Holton Rower

Almost Eudaimonia is Holton Rower’s third exhibition with the gallery and includes his remarkable “cut-away paintings” – highly dimensional works which blur the line between painting and sculpture. Rower has perfected a technique of layering paint onto plywood before carving it away to reveal undulating, amorphous mounds, which collectively are reminiscent of psychedelic, topographic maps.

Tim Hailand

Sister I'm a Poet marks Tim Hailand's first solo exhibition with the gallery. The small- to large-scale photographic portraits in the exhibition are a continuation of a body of work developed during a 2012 residency in Giverny where Hailand found inspiration in the Toile de Jouy wallpaper. Drawing upon this inspiration, as well as his training as a painter, Hailand began creating dreamlike compositions by printing his photographic images directly on patterned fabrics. Read More

Vic and Nat'ly's Nawlins

Bunny Matthews

Before and After features Bunny Matthews’ iconic, instantly recognizable cartoons spanning the last 34 years. Meticulously rendered in pen and ink and sometimes colored pencil, the cartoons are drawn in what art critic Eric Bookhardt noted as Matthews’ "traditional post-psychedelic baroque caricature style." In 1982, Bunny Matthews created the emblematic characters, Vic and Nat’ly Broussard for the Times-Picayune’s Dixie magazine. For decades, Vic and Natly’s commentaries have amused, and often provoked. Matthews has said that he holds high standards for New Orleans, where he believes most people are too accepting and forgiving. His outspoken style often prompts controversy, yet he remains unapologetic. He believes that lines are meant to be crossed and through his work, he aims to educate and enlighten his audience, forcing them to react, to think and to change. Read More

New Wave

Jenny LeBlanc and Kyle Bravo

This is collaborators, and husband and wife, Jenny LeBlanc and Kyle Bravo’s first exhibition with the gallery. Their multi-sensory installation in the gallery’s New Media Room explores the ordinariness of everyday life alongside an existential search for meaning and purpose. The brightly painted and precariously stacked cardboard boxes create a delightful, yet also threatening sense of anticipation. Humor, rebellion, strategy and deceit transform commonplace into mysterious and magical contraptions. Read More

B J Robinson (Triptych)

George Dureau

George Dureau passed away in 2014 leaving the legacy of a remarkable 40-year career. This exhibition features works from the late artist’s personal collection, many of which are being made available by the estate for the first time ever. Included among the many medium- to large-scale drawings and paintings is a charcoal study of the New Orleans Museum of Art’s Gates at North Court, as well as a charcoal on canvas study of the pediment sculptures at Harrah’s Casino. Some familiar faces unite the figural drawings and paintings with the one hundred 10 x 8 inch photographs hung in the center gallery. However, many of the featured photographs are less familiar than the more iconic images often presented in publications or past exhibitions. The works in the exhibition date from the late 1960s through 2000. Read More

rob wynne

Rob Wynne

The works in Rob Wynne’s second exhibition with the gallery reference the ability to grasp visual stimuli without consciously perceiving them. References to sleight of hand and magic are made tangible by the artist as he addresses issues of perception and the concept of seeing. His long-standing fascination with narrative is evident in the beautiful, transportive, and sometimes camp landscapes he creates for language. Read More

Lee-Deigaard-Salome

Lee Deigaard

In her first solo exhibition with the gallery, artist Lee Deigaard presents collaborative nocturnal portraits of animal protagonists and the emotional and physical landscapes we mutually inhabit. Circulatory systems, ecological processes of flow, immersion, and convergence inform much of her work, which explores animal autonomy and human trespass. Read More

Vernon-Fisher-Sea-of-Uncertainity

Vernon Fisher

Distant Voices in a Foreign Language is Vernon Fisher’s first exhibition with the gallery and features multiple bodies of work from the past decade. Patricia Mora describes the artist’s work as “rigorous, yet thoroughly fun-infused, excursions that are analogous to solving for ‘x.’” Read More
