In the Gallery:
RAW: New Orleans
Cité des Arts is showing the work of Mrs. JoAnna McMurray for the month of August. She writes: “I am a Artist. I’m a Wife of a New Orleans Native and Mother of one beautiful daughter. I specialize in Abstract art focusing on movement and bold colors and faceless women portraits putting emphasis on hair styles and textures. I want people to get lost in my work and see something through the painting that I don’t see. I hope my Art inspires others to take a leap of faith and make their dreams a reality because you never know what blessings may be around the corner! Inspirations God, My Husband and Daughter, High School teachers Shelly Savoy and Ericka Buller, Nature, Artists – Sue Tsai, Britt Brass, Moss and Blue, Chad Schoon, just to name a few.” More on the artist is at her website.
Coming this September, Cité des Arts is showing the work of Brandon Faulk. He writes “I was born in Crowley Louisiana and raised in the quiet country of Indian Bayou. I spent my childhood roaming through the woods brandishing wooden swords my father made for me…Drawing was always a part of my life as I grew up…my paintings are at Artmosphere Bistro, Facebook and Instagram and on Deviantart.com.”
