Baton Rouge Gallery Proud to Exhibit the Latest from Anne Boudreau, Haejung Lee and Matt Morris In September
A ‘First Wednesday’ Opening Reception will be held at the gallery, located inside BREC’s historic City Park (1515 Dalrymple Drive) to celebrate the exhibition on September 2, 2015 from 7 – 9 p.m. As always, ‘First Wednesday’ Opening Receptions are free and open to the public.
On Sunday, September 6, the gallery’s ARTiculate Artist Talk series will offer an intimate look at the inspirations, techniques and thoughts that led to the works featured in the gallery. Two of the three exhibiting artists, Morris and Boudreau, will be on hand to discuss their work and answer questions from those in attendance. ARTiculate begins at 4 p.m. and is also free and open to the public.
Visitors to the exhibition will be treated to Anne Boudreau's transformative textile installations, Haejung Lee's expressive ceramics and Matt Morris's playfully mind-bending photography.
