ART TALK


FROM THE

DIRECTOR

Lifelong learning and enjoyment never stops. We invite you to visit, relax, and see the changes made since your last visit. There are always surprises to find around every corner. If you have not seen it yet, Reflections celebrates masters of 20thcentury art offering a distinct African-American perspective on life. These artworks, primarily figurative, tell stories we all can enjoy and relate to in our own lives. Our installation offers interactive moments for the whole family, including computer animation, an artwork as a big puzzle to draw and a photo booth for you. We are excited to have the collector, noted costume designer Myrna Colley-Lee, visit with theatre students and discuss her collection with us at the exhibition reception on September 7. Two exhibitions opening this fall include a celebration of sculpture by Louisiana artist Martin Payton and an international project exploring surrealist prints from Parisian publisher Georges Visat. The Julie Heffernan painting exhibition continues for a few more weeks, but it soon will leave us for a national tour under our auspices. People have been talking about this exhibition all summer long. Do not miss it. Finally, I want to celebrate two new additions to our diverse permanent collection (page 10). First, it is exciting to see numerous offers of donation resulting from the Exploring Photography exhibition, including an Ansel Adams photograph donated by retired LSU faculty member Thomas Neff. The second addition is a highlight in the Dr. James R. and Ann A. Peltier Collection of Jade. This is one of the finest collections of its kind anywhere, with a recently donated piece, a covered container from the Qing Dynasty depicting a honking goose.

Art Talk Fall 2017

Reflections tells a highly personal story of community and place through selected pieces from the extensive collection of costume designer and arts patron Myrna Colley-Lee. Featuring fifty works including paintings, works on paper, collages, and fabric pieces, Reflections presents the lives, traditions, and environments of African Americans in the twentieth century. The exhibition focuses largely on the figurative and representational, presenting pieces by such noted artists as Romare Bearden, James Van Der Zee, Elizabeth Catlett, Eudora Welty, and Betye Saar. Together, these complementary works present a snapshot of life from within the African American community as well as by artists working in close proximity to it. Imagery in the works selected for Reflections focuses primarily—although not exclusively—on two areas: narrative, or genre subjects from everyday life; and the landscape of the American South. The juxtaposition of these two distinct yet related motifs allows viewers to connect the strong tradition of storytelling by African Americans with the sense of place that is largely unique to southerners. Colley-Lee is herself a transplant to rural Mississippi, and her collection reflects in part her personal appreciation of the two traditions and the way in which she sees them intertwine. This collection represents a dialogue between the artist and identity. Only by reflecting upon the lives, traditions, and environments of African Americans in the twentieth century can this identity be found. Reflections is organized by International Arts & Artists in collaboration with Myrna Colley-Lee. Exhibition support is provided by The Imo N. Brown Memorial Fund in memory of Heidel Brown and Mary Ann Brown, Louisiana CAT, L. Cary Saurage II Fund.


Visit our interactive stations in Reflections, including creating Romare Bearden-inspired stop animation collages,a collaborative coloring area where visitors can recreate Ernest Crichlow's Underground II, and a James Van Der Zee-style photo booth.

The impact of When the Water Rises continues to be seen even in the final days of its run at LSU MOA. Here's a sample of some of the comments we've received via social media about Heffernan's work. Share your feedback on the exhibition with us at www.lsumoa.org/feedback.

"This should speak to everyone... Some beauty is disastrous but not all disaster is beautiful. Thank you Julie Heffernan for releasing such a vivid imagination in which we freely explore into your mind." "After the flood here in Louisiana last year, these wild dreamworlds feel all too real." 6

PRINTS FROM THE ATELIER OF GEORGES VISAT

September 28, 2017–March 25, 2018

Brown Bag Lunch LSU History of Prints students on the George Visat collection Wednesday, October 4, 2017, 12–1 p.m. Third Thursday Talk with LSU Art History professor Darius Spieth followed by rooftop stargazing and sake tasting Thursday, January 18, 2018, 6–8 p.m. Fifth and Sixth floors Free First Sunday Guided tour in French Sunday, February 4, 2018, 2 p.m. Fifth floor IMAGE: Max Ernst, Untitled, 1972, 1/1, etching with aquatint

On loan from the family of master printer, painter, and poet Georges Visat, this exhibition is composed of over 60 prints by iconic Surrealist artists who collaborated with Visat’s publishing house. Visat, who began frequenting artists of the historical avant-garde during the immediate post-war years and founded Éditions Georges Visat in 1962, established his presses in the traditional Parisian art district of Saint-Germaine-des-Prés. Included in the exhibition are graphic works by Max Ernst, Dorthea Tanning, René Magritte, Man Ray, Hans Bellmer, Roberto Matta, and Francis Bacon, among others. While Surrealism developed and reached its height between the world wars, Visat’s activities as Surrealist printmaker peaked in the 1950s and 1960s. Aware that Surrealism seemed to lose momentum in the 1950s, artists such as Visat’s close friend and collaborator, Max Ernst, sought to revive the movement. The exhibition includes works by early Surrealists as well as those who sought to reinvigorate the movement in the 1960s. Also included are illustrated artists’ books with Surrealist poetry, a specialty of Georges Visat, who had a profound understanding of Surrealism’s literary foundations. This exhibition is a part of a collaboration with LSU art historian Dr. Darius Spieth. In the fall of 2017, Dr. Spieth's History of Prints students will be required to conduct research, write didactic texts for the exhibition, deliver public talks, and lead guided tours for museum visitors. Exhibition support is provided by The Imo N. Brown Memorial Fund in memory of Heidel Brown and Mary Ann Brown, Louisiana CAT, and L. Cary Saurage II Fund. www.lsumoa.org

Third Thursday Rooftop rum tasting with Cane Land Distilling Company Thursday, November 16, 6–8 p.m. Sixth floor

Broken Time: Sculpture by Martin Payton features 30 steel sculptures by local sculptor Martin Payton. The exhibition focuses on Payton's recent work: his sculpture created in the last twenty years represents his most sophisticated improvised compositions. Inspired by New Orleans jazz musicians who maintain African heritage in the form of polyrhythms, chants, and improvisation, Payton maintains the record of use and wear in his material—scrap metal. Payton welds these materials as found, improvising his sparse, lyrical steel sculptures, which are deeply rooted in the modernist tradition. Striking lines, curves and planes are deepened with nuanced layers of meaning rooted in African symbolism, the African American experience, and jazz. The project will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue with essays by LSU MOA Curator Courtney Taylor; LSU Professor and Director, African & African American Studies Program, Dr. Joyce Jackson, Southern University retired art historian Eloise Johnson, and New Orleans poet, editor, and music producer Kalamu ya Salaam. Born in New Orleans in 1948, Martin Payton currently lives and maintains a studio in Baton Rouge. Payton was a professor of art at Southern University from 1990 until retirement in 2010. He received his BFA from Xavier University and his MFA from Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. Payton’s work is held in the permanent collections of NOMA, the Amistad Research Center, the William King Regional Arts Center, and the Rosekrans Runnymede Sculpture Garden. In 2002, as part of a collaboration with friend and colleague John T. Scott, Payton constructed the Spirit House, a public art project that celebrated African American contributions to New Orleans by incorporating drawings of area school children into the project. Generous support for this exhibition is provided by The Imo N. Brown Memorial Fund in memory of Heidel Brown and Mary Ann Brown, Louisiana CAT, and the L. Cary Saurage II Fund, and Robert T. and Linda H. Bowsher. In preparation for this exhibition, Curator Courtney Taylor sat down with Martin Payton to discuss his life, his experiences, and his art. Interestingly, Payton’s journey crosses paths with a few artists featured in the Reflections exhibition: John T. Scott and Charles White. Their work encouraged Payton to find his own voice. Read more about Payton on the Inside LSU MOA blog at www.lsumoa.org/inside-lsu-moa.

"I feel that all my life I’ve been in conversation with makers ... I still am. When I’m in the studio, I’m in conversation with everyone who ever made an image that I saw, and so I went back to the pile and started rummaging to find what my voice was supposed to be."

RECENT NEW ACQUISITIONS OBJECTS AT LSU MOA LSU MOA's permanent collection added 45 new objects in the past fiscal year, all contemporary with the exception of Chinese jade. This includes the honking goose container from the Qing dynasty (c. 1750– 1800), pictured above was generously donated by Dr. James R. and Ann A. Peltier. Learn more about the Peltiers and their generous donation on page 11.

ANSEL ADAMS

One of the new additions for the current fiscal year is a photograph by Ansel Adams, donated by retired LSU faculty Thomas Neff. Neff bought this from Adams at a workshop he attended years ago and chose to donate the piece after seeing the Exploring Photography exhibition this summer. Our photography holdings currently include three portraits of Adams, two of which were on display during Exploring Photography. This photograph is the first of Adams to be added to LSU MOA's permanent collection.

BUILDING A COLLECTION DONOR SPOTLIGHT ON THE PELTIERS In 2002, LSU MOA began acquiring what is now known as The Dr. James R. and Ann A. Peltier Collection of Chinese Jade with a donation of 12 pieces from the Peltiers' personal holdings. Today, the museum has 82 objects in total from the Peltiers—54 of those objects are promised gifts—to showcase their unique collection, with 28 pieces of Chinese jade currently on display. Donating to LSU MOA was an easy decision for Dr. Peltier: “I’ve always been an LSU person, and at the end of our lives, we thought that the best place for our collection was LSU.” The couple began amassing this impressive collection while traveling in Asia. Being surrounded by shops with quality Chinese jade, they began to incorporate collecting into their trips. As an oral surgeon, Dr. Peltier was initially drawn to the intricate carving on these objects. The Peltiers weren’t terribly knowledgeable about jade at first, but went with their instincts. “I realized he had an innate feeling about jade. The first piece we bought [the vase pictured above], he just fell in love with,” says Mrs. Peltier. After discovering that piece and making the decision to purchase it, they were hooked. Their love of jade grew with continued international travel and frequent museum visits to expand their knowledge. With such a large collection, they certainly have their favorites. Dr. Peltier loves the Buddha, "[it’s] the best piece we own," while Mrs. Peltier makes a point to enjoy them all one at time. “I would choose a different piece each day and just appreciate and focus on it all day long.” Now that so much of their collection is held by the museum, Dr. Peltier wants visitors to take the opportunity to enjoy it. “So many of the jade collections across the country are in the storage. We just want this collection to be exposed for people to enjoy.” Visit LSU MOA today to honor the Peltiers wishes and discover your favorite piece in The Dr. James R. and Ann A. Peltier Collection of Chinese Jade now on display. ABOVE: Sakyamuni Buddha, Qing dynasty, late 18th-early 19th century, jadeite, 12 ½ x 9 x 9 inches, Promised gift of Dr. James R. and Ann A.

FINDING A MUSE INCLUDING ART IN YOUR HOMESCHOOL CURRICULUM

Looking for a way to integrate the arts into your homeschool education plan? LSU MOA is here to help with our objects-based arts enrichment program, MUSE. Check out the information below to see if MUSE is right for your homeschooler! What kind of curriculum does MUSE offer? MUSE explores a wide and diverse world of art, art history and art making. Adapted to different ages, levels and needs, the program serves families from Baton Rouge and surrounding parishes and is designed to align with the homeschool curriculum and philosophy. Students are introduced to each area of the museum's collection and special exhibitions and learn about the history, materials and purpose of the objects, developing a connection through art to culture and self. When does the program take place? Students can register for one of the three groups: Group A is held on the first Thursday of the month, Group B is the second Thursday and Group C is the third Thursday. Each class is held from 1–2:30 p.m. What if I can't make one of the classes I signed up for? If you can't attend a session, contact us as soon as possible to see if there is an open slot for another session that month. How much does the MUSE program cost? For each session, the museum charges a $10 fee to cover the cost of admission and supplies. For parents with multiple homeschoolers, consider purchasing a household membership for $125, which allows you and your spouse plus two children free admission to MUSE and the museum all year long plus a variety of additional benefits.
