Art in Action: Inflate, Draw, Pour

Oct 21, 2014 - Jan 04, 2015

 The act of making art is the focus of this exhibition which spotlights the work of three noteworthy artists whose process is just as intriguing as the results. Catch Jason Hackenwerth in action before October 10 as he inflates thousands of brightly colored latex balloons to create organic sculptural forms measuring over 30 feet tall. Stretching and twisting her body while drawing, Heather Hansen captures her motions on oversize canvases, while Holton Rower pours up to 50 gallons of paint onto a single piece of plywood, one cup at a time, as hundreds of colors expand into kaleidoscopic shapes. Video documentation showing each artist at work is included. This exhibition is presented in honor of Prospect 3, the international contemporary art biennial taking place in New Orleans this fall.

Peter de Francia: An Italianate in Britain

Oct 21, 2014 - Jan 04, 2015

 This intimate exhibition showcases the distinctive paintings of British artist, writer, and teacher Peter de Francia (1921-2012). Considered by critics to be among the “Big Beasts” of British art alongside Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud, de Francia lived in England for more than sixty years yet never felt at home. A sojourn in Italy during the late 1940s left a lasting impression, influencing both his political views and his aesthetic output. A powerful figurative artist, de Francia’s paintings and drawings belie an overriding interest in people and their humanity.

100 Years After the War to End All Wars

Oct 21, 2014 - Oct 26, 2014

In the summer of 2014 the world marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, which at the time was the war that was thought to be the War to End All Wars.  This was a total war and the first modern war to affect the world, not simply by the astounding number of deaths, but by the resulting spread of democracy and nationalism.  The exhibit will feature approximately an international collection of nearly 100 WWI posters, which served as effective vehicles of government and political propaganda to support the war, as well as WWI era artifacts.
