Production is back in swing and new paintings are coming out of the studio this month. There are three exhibitions opening in the next two months so be sure to visit one of these three venues:
July 24th: Art Melt at the Capitol Park Museum in downtown Baton Rouge. The festivities will be kicked off on Friday, July 24th at 7 pm with the Preview Party which is a classy affair with hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and, of course, art. The Preview Party includes an awards ceremony that recognizes the 2015 Art Melt winners and honors the 2015 Forum 35 Art Melt Louisiana Art Legend. Attendees of the exclusive Preview Party include our 2015 artists and sponsors as well as a select group of industry professionals. Additionally, a very limited number of tickets will be reserved for members of the public who would like to get a sneak peak of the art, before the event. Traditionally, all of the artwork is sold at this private event, so if you’re interested in purchasing an original piece from Art Melt 2015, we recommend you hurry and secure your tickets as space is limited and tickets go fast!
August 8th: Dirty Linen Night at Graphite Galleries in New Orleans. Several brand new pieces will debut this night. This year’s DLN takes place from 6 to 10 p.m. in the 200 to 900 blocks of Royal Street. The Vieux Carré thoroughfare will be closed to traffic as usual, providing a promenade punctuated by roughly 50 participating art galleries and shops.
August: Summer Splash Exhibition featuring emerging artists at Ann Connelly Fine Art in Baton Rouge. The Gallery has been a leading part of the regional artistic community, representing national and local emerging and mid-career professional artists. Artists associated with the gallery hold a range of academic and prestigious awards in painting, sculpture, mixed media and three-dimensional work. Ann Connelly Fine Art continues to focus on fine art placement in residential design, corporate consultancies, and specialized procurement services.
