Louisiana is strange enough as is, so it wasn’t to hard to discover the places I’m showing to you in this post. We (me + significant other + dog) traveled 30 minutes north of Baton Rouge to find the world’s largest living Bald Cypress tree and rumors of cliffs and waterfalls hidden in the woods.
The local art scene in Baton Rouge is getting noticeably more exciting!
Elevator Projects is an art collective that holds “pop-up” experimental art exhibitions. It was started by a group of LSU graduate art students who saw a need for more open platforms for art in the community.
More about Elevator Projects in this article, and Facebook here. The most recent exhibition is Fluxswitch, in which I installed collaborative paper work in. Keep scrolling down for photos from the opening night.
Sneak preview! Here are some snippets of an upcoming art exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana that I organized and am collaborating in for the SGC International Printmaking Conference. Uncharted Territories: A Printscape is a collaborative installation by a group of emerging artists in South Louisiana. The installation includes a conglomeration of large format printmaking, papermaking, fiber, video projection, sound and light.
It is about time that I share a few photographs of my Master’s of Fine Arts thesis show, The Latent Landscape, which took place in April 2011 at the Glassell Gallery in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
A short photo essay from a walk earlier today from the Mississippi River riparian. Witness cracked mud, barges, and even my dog, Boca.
Other than working at my real job and attempting to run this blog, another recent activity has been organizing an art exhibition for the upcoming SGC International Printmaking Conference, Navigating Currents. This year, it will be in New Orleans, Louisiana, and only a hop-skip-and-a-jump away from Baton Rouge.
