If you come to my presentation this Thursday Nov 2, 7:00pm, at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art, you can also preview my solo exhibit of new work, “A Plein Air Exploration of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast,” which will have just been installed the previous day. My presentation, “Narration and the Fleeting Moment,” is an art history with respect to our understanding of human vision, particularly emphasizing advances in our understanding of vision made in the 19th century. It explores how art advanced our understanding of vision and also how modern vision science can return the favor and help advance art. Separately from my presentation, there will be a reception for my exhibit Saturday, Nov 4, 5-7pm. Here are a few images of paintings that will be included:

I’ve parted with the Cole Pratt Gallery on very good terms after nearly a quarter of a century. It was a painful decision for me to leave one of the finest galleries in the region but over the last many years the gallery’s clientele has become saturated with my work, resulting in fewer and fewer sales. As sad as I am to leave the Cole Pratt Gallery, I’m equally happy and excited to be a free agent, travel lighter, cast a wider net, and explore other markets in the region.
Our new Thursday class location is on the bank of the lagoon in City Park by the WPA car bridge where N. Alexander Street goes over the lagoon. We will be on the City Park Avenue side of the lagoon. N. Alexander is the only street that enters the park from City Park Avenue.
I’ll be doing painting demonstrations, participating in panel discussions, and this Thursday afternoon, presenting, “Painting Katrina – documenting plein air a New Orleans ravaged by the forces of nature.” Here’s a link to the event’s website: yallcomepaint.com
