Exhibitions

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

James Drake

Feynman Diagrams unify the many works in James Drake’s seventeenth exhibition with the gallery, Drawing, Reading and Counting. In the artist’s renown, virtuosic style, contemporary scientific examinations and mathematical expressions are overlaid with classical imagery of birds, insects and nudes. Read More

Jim Richard

"Darn That Dream" features small- to large-scale works rendered in Flashe, oil and gouache, on canvas, linen and paper. The recent works continue the artist’s remarkable series of paintings that depict high style interiors and exteriors flecked with period furniture, kitsch objects, and works of art usually with a modernist flavor. Read More

Wayne Gonzales

Wayne Gonzales is a self-described analytic painter. His work addresses the pliancy of photography and its relationship to history and memory. He culls source images online and from his personal collection, and dissects them to understand the various physical and emotional layers within before reassembling their valued parts on canvas.
