Courtney Egan is strongly inspired by the profusion of native and non-native flora in New Orleans, where she has lived and worked in since 1991. Her work is known to digitally manipulate the natural world, questioning how our perception of nature is augmented by technology.
This exhibition draws from the Ogden Museum’s growing collection of Self-Taught, Outsider and Visionary art to celebrate the creative spirit and intuitive vision of the American South’s Vernacular artists. Artists represented include Minnie Evans, David Butler, Clementine Hunter, Lonnie Holley, Eddy Mumma and many others!
The Ogden Museum is proud to present an exhibition of the works of American Abstract Expressionist artist, Dusti Bongé. This exhibition brings together works from throughout her career to tell the story of one woman’s fierce dedication to a creative life, culminating in a body of work that stands testament to her strong contribution to American Art after World War II.
In collaboration with the New Orleans Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, the Ogden Museum is pleased to present a curated show of works from students attending Dillard University, Southern University at New Orleans and Xavier University, three of Louisiana’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
Established in 2012, this statewide, juried exhibition promotes the contemporary art practices in the state of Louisiana, provides an exhibition space for the exposition of living artists’ work and engages a contemporary audience that recognizes the vibrant visual arts culture of Louisiana and the role of New Orleans as a rising international art center.
Memory is a Strange Bell: The Art of William Christenberry draws inspiration from a line of Emily Dickinson – often quoted by Mr. Christenberry – to explore the role of remembrance and the passage of time in the artist’s work. Although widely known as a pioneering master of color photography as an art form, Christenberry was a multifaceted artist – utilizing painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, found object assemblage, and installations to weave a deeply personal narrative with universal relevance.
