NEWTON HOWARD

ARTISTS AND SENSE OF PLACE

Major Sponsors: Dr. & Mrs. Walter D. Cockerham Newton Howard (1912-1984) was a New Orleans painter known for his serene landscapes of the marshes and bayous of South Louisiana. An avid duck hunter, fisherman and conservationist, Howard’s paintings evoke the calm solitude he found during countless hours of paddling through the marshes near Lafitte and in the many bayous and other swampy settings of the region.

BONELLA A. ST. VILLE ELEMENTARY STUDENTS EXPLAIN! (PSST: NOT HONEY BEES!) With Artist Shawn Hall Since 2001, the Education Department has organized artist-in-residence programs that pair artists with local schools. Most recently, artist Shawn Hall worked with 200 of Bonella A. St. Ville Elementary School’s second, third and fourth graders to create an installation inspired by the artist’s research into North America’s native bee species.

PYROGRAPHIC ART FOR THE UNBRIDLED MIND BY SAMANTHA MULLEN

New Orleans artist Samantha Mullen believes “hands are the incarnation of the secret feud between beauty abstracted from meaning and human connotation, between the real and the imagined, between work and play.” This is reflected in her work “the symbiosis of contradicting forms and ideas.” A pyrographic artist, Mullen’s craft is wood burning, and hopes to burn things forever. Her brilliant work is available for purchase in the Museum Store this March. /// I m a g e c o u r t e s y o f S a m a n t h a M u l l e n
