Bruce Davenport Jr: I See You Looking Exhibit

Bruce Davenport, Jr. is a self-taught artist who strives to preserve New Orleans culture. He was born in New Orleans and grew up in the Lafitte Housing Projects in the 6th Ward Treme neighborhood. Davenport's hand-colored drawings of the Mardi Gras parade bands include fine points, such as the exact number of marchers, detailed uniforms and the instruments played by each band member. The artist's use of ink and colored markers to create neat rows of colorful figures captures the rhythm and dynamics of the bands. His themes also include scenes of his experiences in the Lafitte Projects and penitentiary life, where he visited as a child. Davenport's work has been exhibited in New York, Tokyo and New Orleans and is in public and private collections, including the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Benetton Group.

On-Going Events

June Ward: Passages and Possibilities

Gulfport, Mississippi artist June Ward is inspired by beauty and color. After studying drawing and art history at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas, she continued with other learning venues and private instruction, exploring forms of creative expression. In 2009, Ward was juried into membership of Oil Painters of America and is a member of Women Painters of the Southeast. She serves as a Regional Director for The National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. Passages and Possibilities follows Ward's passages through life as she searched for her artistic voice, open to all possibilities. Her art follows the cycle of the seasons in still life, landscape and figurative works. Flowers in her still life paintings show the natural progression of time with blooms at their peak, fading flowers and seeds signifying the repeating cycle. Her landscapes, which often include figurative elements, speak of the passage of time in different geographical locations. The overriding theme throughout all these categories is the emphasis of light, in an intimate setting accented with Ward's hand painted furniture.
