Dale Chihuly

The White series showcases seasoned master Dale Chihuly’s relentless pursuit to expand his highly original language of glass.

Dave Greber

Dave Greber believes that the conscious exploration of our own personal cosmic DNA through art unearths all sorts of seemingly unassociated pieces of ideas. He feels that making new work is an archeology of the sub-conscious—it turns up fragments of broken ceramics and jaw bones, and the scientist receives the gifts the soil has offered and pieces them together to discover a “new dinosaur.” Read More

James Drake

Drake’s recent "White Cut-Outs" are studies in composition and subtraction. The artist creates them by cutting the paper with an X-Acto blade. The elegant works are the product of complicated fabrication and technical expertise. Their impact is related to both the shadows they cast and their drawn line. The tone of Drake’s “Red Drawings” is complicated and political. The intensity and saturation of red chalk infuses the drawings with a different line and character. Read More

More recently, Baker has also begun painting classic record album covers. Read More

John Waters

Using an insider's bag of tricks and trade lingo, Waters celebrates the excess of the movie industry.

Always ambitious and playful, some of the works are condensed narratives or "little movies” as Waters calls them. Read More

Elemore Morgan, Jr.

Elemore Morgan, Jr., was acknowledged for many years as the leading contemporary Louisiana landscape painter. He was especially renowned for his "en plein air" landscape paintings done in the heart of the rice growing region of southwest Louisiana. Many of Morgan's landscapes were done in acrylic on oddly shaped Masonite panels, cut to fit his vision of the land, which he felt were integral to the design and composition of his works. Read More
