The Billboard Art Project - Baton Rouge, LA

This Saturday, November 5th, you can view Several of my pieces on a Giant Digital Billboard in Baton Rouge, LA as well as in New Orleans, LA!!

Beginning at Midnight in Baton Rouge you can view reflection, depth, Woman Reclining, and Perception. To view the times my artwork will be displayed, you can refer to this Handy Time Schedule. My work will be displayed roughly ten times throughout the day.

Also beginning at Midnight in New Orleans you can see Angelic Composition, Divine Vision, Knock On The Sky, and Sisyphean Tableaux. Saturdays and Sundays my pieces will be interspersed throughout the day with other artists, but Monday through Friday during the week of November 7-11 my art will be shown with only a select few artists.

The Billboard Art Project is taking over roadside digital LED billboards to turn them into free public art venues for 24 hours or more.

Those in-your-face and colorful canvases that you see as you sit stuck in traffic are turned over to local and international artists for a little break from everyday advertising, presenting larger-than-life art in glowing colors.

Catch a glimpse from your car as you drive by, or hang out for awhile and watch the show with other artists and onlookers.

You won't know what is coming next as different artists explore this medium, with the electronic canvas morphing every 6-10 seconds.

Baton Rouge, LA
Saturday, November 5, 2011 from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m.
24 hours of continuous art at 8558 Goodwood Boulevard and Tara Blvd, Baton Rouge, LA 70806. See map

New Orleans, LA
Saturday, November 5, 2011 at 12 a.m. to Friday, November 18th at 11:59 p.m.
Four weeks of art interspersed among advertising at Pontchartrain Expressway, east bound, just after South Claiborne Avenue. See map

If anyone happens to make it to either of these, can you please take pictures and send them to me. Thanks!

Natural Beauty

From my recent Artist's Adventure Residency excursion, I have crafted this beautiful new piece. Utilizing photographs I took from the outing, I spent numerous days tolling over the various shots until I created a seamless scene without any tourists. AND THEN I was able to start working my magic that makes my artwork unique, which still took several more days of crafting.

The finished piece will measure 16" x 36"

The director of the Adventure Program Program, Calder Brannock, will be taking this lovely piece, along with other pieces from our Adventure group, to the annual Art Basel Miami International Art Show. And then in March, just in time for my birthday, we will be showing here in DC at Flashpoint Gallery.
