Tiffany A. Nesbit was born in New Orleans and grew up in surrounding parts of

She has also curated and co-curated many local art events and exhibitions throughout
Louisiana. Nesbits’ work is also a part of several community projects, such as; Pelicans
on Parade and Artists in Cellophane. Her solo exhibitions include: Serious Traits ll, Elgin

of Covington City Hall, Covington, Louisiana 2018. Today, Nesbit is continuing her
education with an MFA in Sculpture at the University of Houston, Texas, while instructing
Fundamentals of Sculpture. She is a Board Member of the Hammond Regional Arts Center, Hammond, LA. In the Artist’s own words, “the components that create industrial objects and organic structures are
associated with each other in unpredictable ways. I am interested in searching for their
similar attributes, and using these characters to create a visual formula that construct a
compromise between the industrial and the natural. My work is the outcome of a
fantasized environment, which makes peace with nature and the industrial world we live
in: warping processed inorganic goods into forms that appear raw.
My practice reflects elements of my personal past, present and future living in
both rural and urban areas of the southern United States. While I am becoming more
grateful to live in this moment in history, I still realize there is space to improve day-to-
day human interactions with the environment and humanity as a whole and on an
individual bases. My work uses small individual characters that are physically tied
together, or collaged to create large bundles and layers. The bundles can be seen as either
the fullness or chaos that is possible when individual persons settle into larger groups.
The structures are created from a mixture of found materials; obtained from the side of
roads, waste from construction sites, farming equipment, rusted vessels, etc. These
objects are combined with handmade elements with materials like ceramics, plants,
paper, fabric, house paints and ropes. A sense of play and humor is created when the
spectator interacts with the bundles; by acting as the viewer, or physically touching and
re-arranging the pieces. When exhibited, the sculptures are never shown the same twice.
They are forever changing and morphing into a new pile. The drawings compliment
my sculptures. Using a multitude of separate drawings, they are collaged creating layers and textures; therefore, building surfaces that are influenced by my sculptures and my environments.”

The St. Tammany Art Association is located at 320 N. Columbia Street in downtown Covington. Current gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday 10 am – 4 pm, Saturdays 11 am – 4 pm. All exhibitions are free and open to the public unless otherwise indicated.
