Ersy at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art

Ersy: Architect of Dreams
Ogden Museum of Southern Art
October 1, 2011- January 8, 2012

Ersy is a New Orleans artist whose work is rooted in precise craftsmanship of bronze, silver and wood. Her unique aesthetic is part taxidermy, part reliquary and incorporates elements of surrealism in a visual poetry that often references the pageantry and traditions of her native city.

This exhibition, along with Josephine Sacabo’s Óyeme Con Los Oios, will share space in the Ogden Museum’s galleries, allowing the viewer to see the dialogue between these friends’ and collaborators’ unique bodies of work.

Opening, CAC Art for Arts’ Sake
Saturday, October 1, 2011
6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
