Exhibitions

Ralph Bourque

Ralph Bourque’s meticulous landscape chronicles represent the passing of a day – loosely referencing dawn, noon, dusk and midnight, which the artist likens to the cycle of artistic creation. The medium of black ink on white paper allows Bourque to explore the interplay of darkness and light, and he often adjusts the value of the foreground, middle ground, and background of his works resulting in the interchangeability of positive and negative spaces, and thus, unexpected visual outcomes.

Brian Guidry

Reoccurring themes of technology and the manipulation of nature can be found in Brian Guidry’s paintings, which range visually from compressed lines of color to abstract eruptions. The artist synthesizes color, sound and texture to create “digitized” or “dissolved landscapes,” using a specific color palette sampled from a variety of natural sources. The injection of these "natural" colors into geometric planes and constructions creates shapes and voids suggestive of portals or slips in time, leading the viewer over the precipice of the normal, into the magical realism of the uncanny, peculiar and quantum.

Stephanie Patton

Themes of mental and physical health, healing, comfort, and self-preservation are maintained in Sensitivity Training, which includes medium- to large-scale sculptural text constructions, padded vinyl wall pieces, and video. Stephanie Patton continues to employ humor as a device to solicit attention to critical issues. Her works explore various emotional states and address the desire to develop an understanding of oneself and one’s relationship to others. Read More

John Scott

John T. Scott: His Legacy features work spanning the artist’s career, with many from his most prolific period between 1992 and 2004. This is the artist’s seventh solo exhibition with the gallery, in anticipation and celebration of his inclusion in Prospect.4 (opening November 18, 2017). Read More

Christopher Saucedo

In the realm of confections, Neapolitan signifies three side-by-side flavors of ice cream in the same container. This exhibition, Christopher Saucedo’s first with the gallery, is also a rich tripartite of distinct bodies of work: Comic Book Diplomacy, Go Cups and Water Bottle Buoys. The artwork, made concurrently, is unified by the artist’s preoccupation with water or fire as the imagery and technical processes reveal. Handmade paper, chain-stitched embroidery, delicately balanced mobiles and carved polystyrene are all in play as they activate the popular imagery of comic books and drinking containers with global maps both real and imagined.

Luis Cruz Azaceta

ON THE BRINK is Luis Cruz Azaceta’s ninth exhibition with the gallery. The recent works on canvas, which range from kaleidoscopic to austere, present an enigmatic state of affairs, a series of journeys on the edge of order and chaos. Themes of disbalance, dystopia, conflict and passage are boldly rendered in the artist’s distinctive, abstractive style. The paintings reveal Azaceta’s staunch dedication to addressing contemporary issues with his work. Read More

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.

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
