Catherine works both as a Painter and Printmaker and received her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts – Printmaking from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
A printmaker and founder of Freetown Studios in Lafayette—a non-profit print shop/multi-media art center. Susan is driven and passionate about contemporary art and the process of working with artists. I anticipate great things from her work as an artist and an enabler for other emerging artists.
Working in the visual language of the great photographer William Eggleston, Frazier is an emerging young artist who I hope will continue to find exhibition opportunities. The Natchez based photographer was recently chosen to participate in the Mississippi Invitational at the Mississippi Museum of Art.
Villere is a native of New Orleans and is one of the most experimental and progressive sculptors and painters working in Louisiana today. Her works in clay remind me of Lynda Benglis, another Louisiana native, who has made significant contributions internationally.
Artist Edward Pramuk actually recommended that I watch this young man. Over the past decade there has been a revival in pure abstraction. Wreyford’s work is thoughtful and powerful.
Her provocative surrealist imagery owes much to the great Dorothea Tanning who passes away this year. Perhaps Tanning’s spirit guides?
