Bring on the Top Hats: The Prints of David F. Driesbach
Curator: Brian Kelly
Opening Reception: March 15, 6:00 – 8:00pm
On View: March 7 – 18, 2012
Location: Contemporary Arts Center, 900 Camp Street, 3rd floor
www.cacno.org
This exhibition is a survey of the prints by Emeritus Award Recipient, David F. Driesbach, that documents more then 30 years of intaglios, engravings, and lithographs. The exhibition demonstrates his mastery of the printmaking medium, his development, and his love for exploration, innovation, and storytelling. The prints describe a unique universe drawing upon imagery depicting Driesbach’s self-created iconography. Both whimsical and mysterious, they provide a window into colorful happenings, plays, and stories with unique dreamlike or nightmarish settings, times, and plots.

Navigating (storms in) the Sea of Tranquility
Organizers: Deborah Cornell
On View: March 14 – 18, 2012
Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday 9am – 1pm, Saturday – Sunday 12 – 4pm
Location:  Atrium Gallery, New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, 2800 Chartres Street

Featured Artists: Deborah Cornell and Barbara Putnam
Forty years ago, the astronauts of Apollo 11 looked back to earth from the Sea of Tranquility on the moon as a television camera transmitted the first images of earth.  These images replaced political borders with oceans, land masses, shared weather systems, and vibrant life – our global ecosystem. This year, images from space revealed the BP oil spill drifting through the Gulf of Mexico into wetlands, affecting future generations of pelagic fish and vegetation.
In an effort to gain control of our environment and our future, we have developed an unparalleled ability to affect the most elemental of nature’s structures.  As high water from storms, climate change and contamination increasingly inundate cultural centers – Venice, New Orleans, Japan – a crisis of water arises as a global human crisis. This exhibition explores ethical, social, and environmental currents that arise from human interaction with the environment, and the consequences of climate change.

FREEGENERATION is an exhibition of contemporary prints made by students and faculty of art academies in Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, and Hungary. These countries have historically been at the heart of the printmaking tradition. This collection shows the first generation of art students that grew up entirely outside of Eastern Bloc isolation. It covers not only all printmaking media but a wide range of subject matter and style as well, from figurative to abstract, minimalist to post-modern. The prints include works by faculty, graduate and undergraduate students of all levels, from freshmen to department deans. The viewer is invited to assess the reaction, rebellion, and inspiration evident in the works of the students and their teachers as they navigate the opposing currents of tradition and innovation. Drawing on a wealth of technical skill and classical tradition, these artists explore the influences and possibilities offered by global information exchange. As the first free generation, they are setting the framework for the future of printmaking in their countries.

“LSU Printmaking Alumni Exhibition”
Organizer: Kimberly Arp
Museum Hours: Monday, Wednesday – Sunday 10am – 5pm
Location: Ogden Museum of Southern Art, 925 Camp St.

Ever since he arrived at Louisiana State University, Kimberly Arp has been collecting his students’ work. Archived in the flat files of the LSU print studio, over 30 years of artwork has been preserved and used as an extensive teaching resource and student research base. Since 1980, LSU has had a nationally prominent graduate and undergraduate printmaking program with many students going on to pursue successful graduate careers and art professions.

A testament to its excellence, the printmaking program at Louisiana State University has had a great deal of impact in Louisiana, around the country and has made inroads on the international front. A great many careers have matured in the South at LSU and have gone onto flower and bare fruit in a very wide variety of locations and professional avenues. This exhibition will showcase artwork collected during Arp’s tenure (1977 to present) at Louisiana State University as a visual history of its BFA and MFA printmaking program.

“Texted Haiku Broadsides”
Organizer: Dirk Hagner
Opening Reception: March 16th, 10 am – 4 pm
On View: February 8 – March 29, 2012
Gallery Hours: Monday – Saturday 10am – 6pm, Sunday 12 – 6pm
Location: Collins C. Diboll Gallery, Loyola University
This work is based on the traditional broadside printing format and uses a typical sheet size while combining haiku with typography in the early American style of printed announcements. The haikus are classics – however, here they are texted. Dissonant visual elements are embedded in these broadside interpretations to add some acidity to the perceived “romantic” notion that haikus have acquired over time. The unusual combination of different cultural traditions and the use of technological aspects give it unexpected contemporary relevance.

University of New Orleans St. Claude Gallery is thrilled to exhibit the Blue section from the exhibit thINK, an open members’ show of The Boston Printmakers. This selection of fifty-nine prints serves as an overview of innovative and traditional printmaking processes.  It is a showcase of the spectrum of formal possibilities and a sample of the national range of the organization.  Thicket by Ky Ober concisely and boldly summarizes the overarching technical and conceptual themes in the work.  Its position between representation and abstraction and its combination of digital and lithographic processes is indicative of the vibrant variety that characterizes the organization and the work its artists produce.

“The Print Book”
Organizer: Maddy Rosenberg
On View: March 14 – 18, 2012
Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday 9am – 1pm, Saturday – Sunday 12 – 4pm
Location: Ken Kirschmann Artspace, New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, 2800 Chartres Street
www.nocca.com

Featured Artists: Desiree Alvarez, Rosaire Appel, Cynthia Back, Jay Bolotin, Sabra Booth, Brandstifter, Margaret Craig, Thorsten Dennerline, Anne Gilman, Art Hazelwood, Suzanne Reese Horvitz, Eunkang Koh, Kumi Korf, Karen Kunc, Heidi Neilson, Maddy Rosenberg, Miriam Schaer, Amanda Thackray, April Vollmer, Tammy Wofsey

The book as an art form is going through a contemporary renaissance. Artists have always kept sketchbooks, worked with poets, and illustrated books. But the artist’s book is a work of art in itself, where the book as we know it is totally rethought. Why a codex? Why bound at all? Of course a book is an intimate object to be picked up from a shelf and enjoyed, but also to be torn apart; enlarged; hung on a wall, ceiling, standing on the floor; as a part of a larger whole, a bevy of books. Cut, sewn, welded, printed, etched, wound. To be torn apart page by page, transformed as it’s put together again. To be pondered from a distance, to be surrounded by it, to follow it with the eye, to sit quietly and caress its pages. This is an exhibition that will have one re-examining the book as more than a mere container of information, but as an inspiration for the artistic imagination, rethinking the printed page.

“An Eye for “Patios, Stairways and Iron Lace Balconies:” Etchings and Woodblocks of Old New Orleans 1900-1940″
Location: Jean Bragg Gallery of Southern Art, 600 Julia Street
Artists drawn to old New Orleans found an environment that evoked all the picturesque qualities of a French town and of a tropical courtyard in Moorish Spain.  Many did comprehensive etchings of the urban architecture, from Robert Bledsoe Mayfield in 1905, to William Woodward, George Castleden, and Morris Henry Hobbs in the 1930’s. They made their art accessible to the public, often producing souvenir postcards of their compositions. Most significantly, their visual record gave impetus to the Historic Preservation Movement and secured the future of this landmark city’s heart.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 5pm
Location: Arthur Roger Gallery, 432 Julia Street
www.arthurrogergallery.com

The Arthur Roger Gallery is pleased to present “Keepsakes,” an exhibition of mixed media work by Mary Jane Parker. Parker’s current work 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, she began photographing, drawing and cutting stencils of them. References from history, medicine and botany often inform Parker’s work as she looks for affinities with the natural world and our human desire to organize it. In “Keepsakes,” faces of anonymous people are grouped with prints of pressed plants and heirloom doilies, creating a lush, yet slightly uneasy collision of patterns, mementos, nature, and the disquiet of suppressed memories.

Bring us your unsold, unwanted, or rejected prints for a “second chance” viewing! The multitude of prints will be displayed in stacks, piles, or scattered on the floor, as well as hung on the walls alongside billboard prints of junkyards and recycling yards. Prints can be for sale or free. It’s up to you. All remaining prints will be delivered to a recycling facility.

Mosquito Muerto
On View: March 3 – 31, 2012
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 5pm
Location: Arthur Roger@434, 434 Julia Street
www.arthurrogergallery.com

The Arthur Roger Gallery is pleased to present “Mosquito Muerto,” an exhibition of paintings by Keith Perelli. In “Mosquito Muerto,” the recent series of large-scale monotype collage paintings by Keith Perelli, the artist seeks to expose our emotional defenses as a penetrable, raw façade of our psychological armor. The figures, painted as though from the inside out, have been rendered as stripped and dissected. They are woven into environments composed of tangles of flora, objects of antiquity and illusory abstraction.
The dense collages feature the impressions of real plant material, found objects and the painter’s penchant for the abstract mark. The free hanging tapestry-like quality of the collage paintings evokes the woven narrative-works produced in the mid-centuries.  References to the art form and to antiquity can be noted in the poses and interaction of the figures. Suggestions of religious, mythological imagery and classic hunting scenes are present, although here the artist illustrates man being hunted by his own demons.
