Connie Roberts’ work bridges the realms of fine art and folk art and tackles many subjects with sharp wit and unrestrained humor. Roberts creates carved wooden whistles influenced by nursery rhymes, cartoon images and political commentary. Roberts is prolific in her creative range of ideas, which also find their way into larger, complex sculptures with whistle components. /// Image courtesy of C o n n i e R o b e r t s

Since the 1960s, Lynda Benglis has employed a variety of materials including beeswax, latex, vaporized metals and ceramic to explore the physicality of form. Benglis’ ELEPHANT NECKLACE series is a body of hand-wrought, glazed ceramic curls that the artist correlates with the blownout tires of tractor trailer transports strewn on the sides of countless American highways. / / / L y n d a B e n g l i s , Elephant Necklace, 14 of 20, 2017, Cast bronze, 8.5 x 11 x 10.5 inches, Museum purchase with fund provided in honor of Allison Kendrick

VIP Opening Reception: Thursday, October 3, 6 - 8 p.m. (Please see RSVP information on your invitation.) Opening Reception: Saturday, October 5, 6 - 9 p.m. during Art for Art’s Sake In 2015, Level Artist Collective was formed by Ana Hernandez, Horton Humble, Rontherin Ratliff, John Isiah Walton and Carl Joe Williams. As five artists of color with deep ties to the city of New Orleans, Level Artist Collective developed with the intent of creating a platform to promote, support and sustain their cooperative voice and vision. This exhibition, primarily comprised of new work, presents a distinctly New Orleans narrative to the larger contemporary art dialogue through fiercely independent studio practices. /// Ana Hernandez, Those who dwell in the Wa t e r s ( d e t a i l ) , 2 0 1 9 , A c r y l i c , h o u s e p a i n t , g e l medium on canvas

Working with elementary school children in the medium of the artist’s choice, the artist spends three weeks with students exploring the influence of geography and sense of place. Upon completion of the residency, the students visit the Museum to view their finished works of art. This exhibition will showcase artwork created by students from Woodmere Elementary School in collaboration with artist Gina Phillips. The exhibition will be displayed in the Education Gallery on the third floor.
