The Show focuses on the creative visions of our Louisiana artists. This approach showcases interpretation and allows the artists to translate personal experiences and perceptions of what Louisiana means to them—no need to take it literally and base it on swamp or bayou art—however, landscapes, abstracts, figures, and everything in between—a display of creative interpretation with a diverse collection of Louisiana-based artists in various mediums—a wide range of Work to give the Show an eclectic feel defines the broad spectrum of the title.

The theme highlights the importance of our ecosystem and interpreting the connections between art, culture, heritage, and conservation. There are so many ways people affect and perceive our everyday environments. We forget that these environments existed long before humans. Our heritage is part of who we are as individuals. Colors, sights, shapes, and viewpoints will deliver an organic connection to this story. A diverse group and mediums will portray a visual experience spanning multiple tastes and styles, thus strengthening the definition of individuality and expression. This eclectic descriptive show presents visual interpretations of water, land, wood, sky, gardens, abstracted and realistic land, and cityscapes, defining artistic perceptions of Louisiana.


“Wood and Photos”
Janice Black

Pieces are carved and painted, either derived from or combined with photos. The works represent Jan’s friends and family – a form of contemporary genre art.  She is primarily interested in altered perspective, how objects sit in space, ways to draw or carve that perspective and the qualities of line.
