12th Annual Contemporary Figurative Art Show
First Friday April 5th, 2019
Runs through May 25th
Why do artist and collectors like art of the Human Form? Simply put it is because art is a means of communicating human experiences, therefore human bodies are naturally depicted. The figurative form can be used as the ideal medium to convey a spectrum of ideas with which the viewer can resonate. The human figure has always been a common subject of visual art, "it forces the viewer to engage the artwork and enables the artist to express an entire range of ideas from the subtle to the intense". In the history of art the human figure bears, in different ways and through different periods in time, a huge significance, being the most direct means by which art can address the human condition.
A Love Letter to Tensas Parish
First Friday Opening: May 3th, 6pm-9pm Runs Through: June 29th
In a paean to childhood days in St. Joe, Louisiana, Guinotte Wise's sculpture show at The Hilliard Gallery, opening May 3rd, First Friday, is named "A Love Letter to Tensas Parish." The work reflects time spent and things seen in the bucolic delta town and surrounding area during an impressionable period of Wise's boyhood. John Paul Drum and The Big Three will play southern blues, and refreshments inspired by the theme will be served.
