Other Voices Other Rooms - on display thru Sept. 5
Featuring paintings by Roy Pfister and furnishings from History Antiques & Interiors
COVINGTON, LA—This exhibit features the combination of period antiques and decorative accessories in concert with the impressionistic artwork of nationally recognized artist, Roy Pfister. Fine furniture of a different time and place carries the voices of the past into rooms accentuated with the vibrancy of paintings to create a harmony for life today. Through the vignettes assembled for the exhibit, the furniture of History Antiques & Interiors paired with the paintings of Pfister create a “voice” for the expression of the beauty of form and function.
The exhibit and lecture are free and open to the public. For more information, call (985) 892-8650 or email email@example.com.
Architecture as Art: Selections from the New Orleans Museum of Art - Opening reception Saturday, September 12 at 6-9pm
September 12 - October 31, 2015
St. Tammany Art Association is pleased to announce its 6th annual exhibit in partnership with the New Orleans Museum of Art. This year’s exhibit entitled, Views from New Orleans: Contemporary Art from the New Orleans Museum of Art, will feature works by well known regional and national artists from NOMA’s permanent collection. STAA will host an opening reception during Covington’s Second Saturday Art Openings on September 12 at 6:00pm – 9:00pm. The exhibit will be our feature artwork at STAA during Fall for Art on Saturday, October 10 and will be on display through October 31, 2015.
This exhibition presents unique works of eleven artists who have achieved regional, national, or international acclaim, including pieces by George Dunbar, Ida Kohlmeyer, Clarence John Laughlin, Shirley Masinter and Noel Rockmore to name a few.
Architecture in its modern conception could not exist in the absence of the human hand. Architecture and human being serve one another — buildings are conceived, designed, and built to protect us, and we have the ability to manipulate, renovate, and repurpose them. The human eye finds beauty and complexity in the contours of structure—from realism to abstraction—through line, volume, space, and dimension.
However, the exploration of three-dimensional space transcends art and architecture. We place sentimental value on structure and location by imbuing narrative, significance, and history to the façade and interior of a building. Architecture in this exhibition represents the fallen ideals of culture, suggestions of socio - economic strife, nostalgia, and the tragedies that befall manmade landscapes due to neglect and natural disaster. Here, artists have represented cityscapes in a range of styles: recognizably, abstractly, fantastically, and as preservationists.
Through architecture, we document, revisit, rethink and preserve our past, as well as observe our evolution and look towards the future.
A Gallery Talk with exhibition curator and Senior Curator of Collections Research for NOMA, Alice Yelen Gitter, will soon be scheduled. Date and time will be announced soon. Visit our website for more details at www.sttammanyartassociation.org
