Exhibitions

John Alexander

John Alexander's unique observation of nature makes up the foundation of this exhibition, the artist’s fourth with the gallery. Rooted in direct study, these works call upon the natural world for guidance and inspiration. It is, however, the soulful, inventive and spiritual side of these works that truly define them. Alexander is able to capture a raw power made possible through a deep understanding of the complexities that make up the natural world. Read More

Troy Dugas

This exhibition, Troy Dugas’ fourth with the gallery, includes the artist’s familiar, meticulously created mandala-like compositions as well as evolved works incorporating paint in synthesized large-scale portrait and still life assemblages. Shredded product labels in golds, reds and browns are intricately arranged to form mesmerizing works reminiscent of mosaic patterns and stained glass. Others form rhythmic, kaleidoscopic shapes with juxtaposed brightly colored labels. Read More

Lesley Dill

Beautiful Dirt: Ballgowns of Lightness and Dark is Lesley Dill’s ninth exhibition with the gallery and was inspired by the ballroom culture of New Orleans and the adornment of the body. Featured are nine gowned figures centered by a cascading chandelier. The figures range in size from a tabletop sculpture to 7 feet tall, and are constructed of billowing fabric adorned with embroidered letters, flowing skirts of hand-cut copper, or hundreds of pieces of metal foil and feathers. Some of the figures have dramatic head embellishments or collars and others are donned with small, bird-like heads, paying homage to surrealist Max Ernst. Read More

Francis X. Pavy

In "Third Coast Suite", Francis Pavy continues to build upon the imagery, concepts and ideas pertaining to the Louisiana coastal wetlands and surrounding waters. In the same vein as southern storytelling, Pavy constructs bold, colorful layers of iconic images reflecting local folklore. Read More

Dale Chihuly

Edward Whiteman

The Swinging Pendulum, Edward Whiteman’s twelfth solo exhibition with the gallery, features his renowned large-scale paintings created with mixed media on reconstructed paper. The wall pieces range in size from 4 to 10 feet and include familiar motifs – simple yet powerful linear forms with seductive color inspired by the environment. The artist’s paintings are unequivocally abstract but filled with possible allusions such as in The Nile, a work from the artist’s recent Egypt Series. These works feature subtler lines and more intricate patterns in earthen colors. Read More

Holton Rower

This second exhibition with New York-based artist Holton Rower includes his remarkable “Pour Paintings” along with a unique body of work titled “Focus paintings.” Holton Rower, who has been referred to as a “chemist and sculptor of paint,” is renowned for the incredible color combinations he achieves which can be stunningly psychedelic and hypnotic.

Kate Blacklock

Kate Blacklock’s medium-scale works on metal present choreographed tableaus reminiscent of Dutch Vanitas paintings in one series and nightscapes, recalling Japanese screen paintings, in the other. The compositions, which are created using a flatbed scanner as a camera, are captured on dye infused aluminum. They are described by the artist as existing in an ambiguous space, not subject to the laws of gravity. Each of the works conjures an enigmatic moment frozen in time. Read More

Pard Morrison

Pard Morrison, inspired by Donald Judd’s rectilinear, minimalist sculptures and Agnes Martin’s ethereal, though also minimalist, grid paintings, continues to explore the nature of truth and perception with his work. He believes that the current anthropomorphisation of technological devices is rapidly causing the replacement of real experience by artificial two-dimensional experience. He strives to create work that, “upon first encounter primarily reads as artificially fabricated, but upon further investigation, the visual strength of its own "objectness" is compromised by specific human mark making.” Read More

Edward Burtynsky

Water is a series of large-scale aerial photographs by world-renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. The images, often equivocally abstract, portray humankind’s relationship with water and the dramatic effects of industrialization and the consequences of our interference. Burtynsky has traveled the world over the past five years documenting waterfronts, farmlands, irrigation plots, rivers and various water maintenance systems resulting in aesthetically powerful imagery that is at once striking and unnerving. Burtynsky, who strives to find an equal balance between form and content, hopes that the imagery in his work challenges the viewer and initiates a thought process that will eventually lead to a more conscientious view of the importance of this natural and rapidly diminishing resource.
