Exhibitions

Jacqueline Bishop

In this new body of work, Against the Tide, Jacqueline Bishop continues to convey the complexity and fragility of our ecosystem and the psychological connections between species. She describes the new paintings as, “a shift from being inside an unraveling ‘nest world’ to the outside – viewing the planet from a distance, literally presenting the earth as object.” She explores how our natural world is shaped and transformed by climate change, globalization and species extinction and invites us to reflect on the impact to our collective future.

David Bates

The paintings in “Down Highway 23” are the result of a fishing trip in the late spring of 2010, the fateful year of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Instead of the planet’s finest redfish, David Bates was met with a poisoned landscape crawling with reporters, politicians and well-meaning volunteers. Through the hubbub, Bates observed the faces and posture of the local fishers and crabbers. Although wary, their looks also conveyed a resolution far from resignation. Read More

Mary Jane Parker

"Keepsakes" was inspired by the masses of foliage that blanketed the New Orleans landscape in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Struck by the natural patterns of vines and how they decorated the surfaces of the city, Mary Jane Parker began photographing, drawing and cutting stencils of them. This current body of work is a lush, yet slightly uneasy collision of patterns, mementos, nature and the disquiet of suppressed memories. Read More
