This exhibition illustrates how, with each new development – from early photography, Impressionism, Tonalism, the Arts & Crafts Movement and Symbolism through American Scene Painting, Social Realism and Regionalism – Southern artists responded with a distinct blend of tradition and innovation along with a steadfast awareness of the power of place. Artists include Jacques Amans, Joseph Meeker, Ellsworth Woodward, Lulu King Saxon, Julian Onderdonk, Elizabeth Catlett, George Ohr, Angela Gregory, Richmond Barthé, Bill Traylor, Walker Evans, Benjamin Wigfall, Walter Anderson and many more.

While Modernism and Abstract Expressionism developed in the first half of the twentieth century, many artists working in the American South incorporated these new ideas into their practice after World War II. This section of the exhibition traces the development of abstraction in Southern Art through examples by leading figures including Fritz Bultman, Dusti Bongé, Sam Gilliam, Ida Kohlmeyer, Robert Reed, Eugene Martin, Minnie Evans, John T. Scott, Kendall Shaw and Dorothy Hood, among others.

Organized by Rivers Institute for Contemporary Art & Thought and presented in partnership with Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Tina Girouard: SIGN-IN is the first comprehensive posthumous retrospective for the Louisiana-born artist, Tina Girouard, and showcases over forty years of the artist’s practice. Known as a collaborator in artist communities in New York, New York, Lafayette, Louisiana and Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Girouard’s work tells an expansive story of American art. A vanguard artist in the fields of performance, film, textile, printmaking and community-based practices, Girouard’s animated work explores the different places she called home.

Southland examines the role photographs have played in the visualization of the natural landscape of the American South. The exhibition explores the many technical and aesthetic methods photographers have employed in approaching the subject of the Southern Landscape. Highlighting the marshlands in Louisiana, the beaches of Florida, the flatlands of the Mississippi Delta and the mountains of North Carolina and Virginia, the exhibition shows the landscape of the American South is as diverse as the people of the region. Southland not only investigates the topographical physical characteristics of the land of the American South, but the metaphysical and emotional role romanticism plays in the understanding of landscape photographs made of and about the American South.

Remembering Shirley Rabé Masinter

Shirley Rabé Masinter was a hyperrealist painter that maintained an art practice for over 70 years.  Depicting the gritty patina of the inner-city neighborhoods and cemeteries of New Orleans, her carefully constructed compositions find beauty in urban decay. Masinter described her work as being focused “on a city in transition with many controversial and dynamic social forces at play.”
