Jean Seidenberg Exhibit: un soupcon Paintings, Drawings & Sculpture
April 13- May 11, 2013
The St. Tammany Art Association proudly presents un soupçon featuring paintings, drawings and sculpture by artist Jean Seidenberg.
Figurative artist, Jean Seidenberg’s portfolio of work spans more than fifty years. He is a prolific artist whose work includes paintings, drawings, sculpture and photography. Originally from New York, Seidenberg relocated to New Orleans in 1951 and has contributed to the contemporary art market that now flourishes in the city. He established New Orleans’ first independent bronze casting foundry, was a founding member of the city’s first nonprofit contemporary art collective, the Orleans Gallery, and was an instructor at Tulane University. His subject has “persistently been family and friends, children and lovers, and the relationship of artist to model within the intimacy of the studio.” This modern, realist’s collection on display at the St. Tammany Art Association will include several new pieces as well has a sampling of his work over his long career.
The exhibition will be on display at the St. Tammany Art Association located at 320 N. Columbia St. in downtown Covington April 13th – May 11, 2013. The artist’s opening reception will take place on Saturday, April 13th at 4pm – 6pm. The exhibit and opening reception is free and open to the public.
