This exhibit includes Jacqueline Bishop’s major wall memorial installation “Terra”, consisting of numerous small bird portraits, natural objects, drawings and collages arranged as a single composite landscape.
What’s left to say about Louisiana masters Jacqueline Bishop and Douglas Bourgeois? They are the cream of the generation of Bayou State artists who came of age artistically while Ron and Nancy were in the White House.
[Jacqueline] Bishop’s long career in working at the intersection of environmentalism and visual art includes not just Louisiana and the Gulf Coast, which inspires much of her work, but a longstanding relationship with Central and South America and the rainforest conservation work of the late Brazilian rubber-tapper Chico Mendes. Close to home, Bishop’s imagery has always focused on native flora and fauna, painting them with a mixture of close, attentive realism and wild, exuberant surrealism, not unlike a latter-day Hieronymus Bosch. And similar to The Garden of Earthly Delights, in much of Bishop’s work, looking at her paintings is like reading a sentence in which we recognize the words but don’t understand the grammar.

In this episode of LPB Art Rocks!, we meet New Orleans artist Jacqueline Bishop, whose passion for the environment helps feed her creativity. Her paintings have inspired award-winning Chef Phillip Lopez to create a menu for a premiere event, The Art of Food, a dining experience like no other that will be held at the LPB Studios Sunday, October 22.
On the heels of the opening of Pensacola State College’s new art wing is “A Drop of Water, a Grain of Sand,” an exhibit of paintings by New Orleans artist Jacqueline Bishop. Her lauded works are inspired by the environmental destruction she’s witnessed during her 30 years of global travel.
For the upcoming “Art of Food” dinner, presented by Country Roads and Louisiana Public Broadcasting, we tasked the wildly creative Chef Lopez with interpreting the works of Jacqueline Bishop to create dishes for a four-course menu, to be served on October 22 at the LPB studios.
Dozens of pairs of scavenged baby shoes line the shelves in Jacqueline Bishop’s New Orleans studio. Collected by the artist from the streets of cities in America and of third-world countries, each pair of shoes serves as a tiny canvas, upon which the artist has painted exquisite portraits of flora and fauna—orchids, honeyeaters—that have vanished from their native range as the tide of human civilization rolls on.
Over the years, Arthur Roger nurtured artists through his art gallery opened in 1978 and in doing so, helped shape and promote the art scene of his native city. Joining the list of benefactors, he recently gifted his sizable art collection accumulated over four decades to the New Orleans Museum of Art. The eighty-seven objects, including paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, are on display this Summer for the exhibition Pride of Place: The Making of Contemporary Art in New Orleans, curated by Katie Pfohl, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at NOMA.
When Arthur Roger launched his gallery in 1978, there were only a handful of others focused on new art. The scene has expanded greatly since then, but Roger has more than kept abreast of the ever-changing art world through the years, as we see in this sprawling new exhibition of works from his personal collection, which he donated recently to the New Orleans Museum of Art.
