> DESCRIPTION

Abstraction In Louisiana featured twenty contemporary Louisiana artists including Wayne Amedee, George Dunbar, Ida Kohlmeyer, Gene Koss and Pat Trivigno in an exhibition at the CAC in 1980. Calas, in his introductory essay stated: “We seem, at least now, to need more. We seem to require that our metaphors are more ‘interactional,’ that both an image and its antecedent remain before us; that they both seduce us; that they, in the end, produce some new experience.” NOLA NOW, Part II: Abstraction In Louisiana (1980 & 2012), includes artists from the Greater New Orleans area, whose work demonstrates the powerful influence of our surroundings.
