Henry Hood Gallery Presents “Dreaming Out Loud” Opening for Spring for Art

Published by:

Babette Beaulieu

Babette Beaulieu

Henry Hood Gallery features the works of local artists Babette Beaulieu and Linda Dautreuil in “Dreaming Out Loud”, with an opening reception and meet the artists Saturday during Spring for Art, 6 – 9 pm.

Linda Dautreuil

Linda Dautreuil

These artists use mixed media, yet highly structured processes, to enhance their stories. Babette’s translucent female forms are pierced with found debris the clothed with skin like ribbons of writing. In Linda’s new works on paper, an underlying grid holds the layers of marks as the images develop giving meaning and visual intrigue to the pieces.

Henry Hood Gallery is located at 325 E. Lockwood Street, downtown Covington, LA.

“Out of the Wild” is the new installation by Peggy Hesse now showing at Three Rivers Gallery. “Wild nature inspires me, the tangle of undergrowth, the hanging vines, stately trees, the constantly changing light on the bayous and rivers. To me the wild places are holy and set apart in the quiet from the noise and congestion of today’s world.” – Peggy Hesse

Everything about Barry Thomas is big. Big colors. Big physique. Big heart. Big humility. Big paintings. Even his paintbrushes, which he travels to Madrid, Spain to acquire, are big. And yet, he never fails to capture the subtle beauty of an Aspen tree, or a horse and rider, or a sunset shining eastward. Read more about Barry here.


Robert Maxwell: Exhibition of Sculpture at Three Rivers Gallery
333 E. Boston Street

“Beauty is found not in perfection but rather the dancing among imperfection” Robert Maxwell

Robert Maxwell at Three Rivers Gallery in Downtown Covington

Robert Maxwell at Three Rivers Gallery in Downtown Covington

Robert Maxwell’s exhibition of sculpture is a collection of work by the artist specializing in the human figure.  Having been inspired by some of the Old Master sculptors such as Rodin and Bernini, he traveled to Europe to study their works.  He has spent years learning and perfecting the complex lessons necessary for the technical skill required to sculpt such demanding subject matter.  He is constantly inspired by the  beauty evident in the human form.  There are so many elements that are important to the creation of the work such as mass, volume, perspective, light and dark.  These elements give an impression of form and space and bring emphasis to a particular narrative between the subject and the artist’s expression of that subject.  The most important element to Maxwell’s sculpture however is: texture.  The significance of the evidence of the human touch on the sculpture pieces are what the artist hopes to emphasize.  The handmade human quality and visible textures are just as important as the subject itself.

Award-winning artist Robert Maxwell has been a resident of St. Tammany Parish all of his life.  He has two Masters Degrees from Mississippi College for education and sculpture.  He spends much of his time sculpting his creations and teaching others anatomy, sculpture and mold making.  His art is in the permanent collections of Taylor University, Vermont Law School, and National University in Lima Peru, and locally: the Bogue Falaya Park gates. He is in public, private and corporate collections throughout the United States and abroad.

Robert Maxwell: Exhibition of Sculpture is on view from July 12th through August 1st, 2014.

“Signs Of Life: Rosemary Goodell & Dale Newkirk” Opening Reception at Henry Hood Gallery

Published by:

Henry Hood is proud to present “Signs of Life” featuring prints by Rosemary Goodell & Dale Newkirk.  They will host an opening reception February 8th from 6 – 9 pm.  Both artists will be present to talk about their work.

Rosemary GoodellRosemary Goodell
Rosemary Goodell’s lively mono prints based on nature and music invite close inspection and comparisons.  Each finished print has been pressed multiple times creating a variety of effects from transparent films to subtle textures and deep embossing.  Some of these reappear in different colors, locations and depths within the prints.  Rosemary received a Fulbright Memorial Fund Fellowship in 1998 to study in Japan.  In 2001 and 2008 she was resident in painting at the Vermont Studio Center.

Dale Newkirk at Henry Hood GalleryDale Newkirk
Dale Newkirk has invented abstract digital signs influenced by a long road trip out west.  These are bold with sharp edges and colors yet subtle with interesting spatial ambiguities, a somewhat playful minimalism. Careful observation reveals delightful little surprises. Dale currently is the Director and Curator of University Art Galleries at Southeastern La University. He also has been the Curatorial Department Director and Head Preparator at the Terra Museum of American Art in Chicago and the American Museum of Art, Giverny, France

The exhibit will be on display from February 8th – March 1st.  The opening reception is a free and open to the public event.

Covington, A Cultural Arts District: Downtown’s Emphasis on the Arts

Published by:

cadcollageCovington’s Bicentennial Celebration year is upon us, and the Covington Historic District is coming back to life in a big way.  The city was given the designation of Cultural Arts District in 2008 as a result of the Louisiana Cultural Districts Program created by Act 298 of the 2007 Regular Session of the legislature.  The initiative is intended to spark community revitalization based on cultural events and activity through tax incentives, and 2013 is proving to be progressive for the downtown area.

The Second Saturday Art Stroll is a continuous event featuring shows at the Art Association and participating galleries.  Tripolo Gallery on Columbia Street, Henry Hood Gallery on Lockwood and Three Rivers Gallery on Boston St. are both regular participants in the monthly event.

Columbia Street is also alive with the sound of music, and two notable new venues are the Columbia Street Rock N Blues Cafe and Winos & Tacos.  The Rock N Blues Cafe features a newly renovated interior and staging area, outside patio and traditional southern pub fare from the kitchen.   Winos & Tacos is a Tequila, Taqueria and Wine Bar with hot New Orleans music acts like Glen David Andrews and Jazz Fest veterans Soul Project.  Chris LeBlanc will be playing there this Thursday with an acoustic Valentine’s Day show.

The Columbia Street Tap Room and Seiler Bar are still staples of the downtown music and food scene, featuring entertainers like Bag O Donuts and The Chee Weez, and broadcasting local sporting events.  The Green Room also has some new touches with a brand new staging area and the best original local music.  You’ll find favorites Davey Crockett & the Wild Frontier, The Rotten Cores and southern rockers The Shiz, as well as some of the local talent at their Open Mic Wednesdays.
