Babette Beaullieu, Maggie McConnell and Luba Zygarewicz make visible the passage of time through sculptural installations showing that boundaries are as impermanent as time.  Their resulting artwork is part of “Pushing Boundaries,” the latest exhibition in the St. Tammany Art Association’s Miriam Barranger Gallery on display through May 25.  The St. Tammany Art Association is located at 320 N. Columbia Street.

The artists will participate in a discussion about their processes, techniques and inspirations May 11th at 4 p.m. In a talk led by Dale Newkirk where he is currently the Head of the Department of Visual Art + Design and the Department of Music and Performing Arts at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond.  This event is free and open to the public.

The St. Tammany Art Association will exhibition new work by STAA Artist Members.  An Opening Reception is this Saturday, May 11 from 6 – 9 p.m. At the Arthouse in Covington.  (320 N. Columbia St.)

The St. Tammany Art Association was founded in 1958 by a small group of civic-minded individuals dedicated to bringing art to St. Tammany Parish.  Today the Art Association is an organization with over 700 members that has served as a catalyst for the arts.  

The organization has grown into a new building in downtown Covington to further serve the needs of emerging and established artists, and to provide arts education and exhibitions to the community.
