Tiffany Angel Nesbit Exhibition at Heritage Bank

Published by:

Tiffany Angel Nesbit will exhibit new studio paintings at Heritage Bank of St. Tammany May 6 – June 3, 2019. Titled “Remnants of Past Obsessions,” the exhibition is derived from taking past ideas and physical pieces from previous bodies of work to merge them with current ideas. A closing reception will be held May 31, 2019 from 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., free and open to the public.
Nesbit explains, “I am tearing apart old drawings and paintings, keeping the parts that still interest me. Taking ideas of past projects, I am using the skills I have recently developed with various mediums, to create additional drawings and paintings. I then synchronize the old and new by collaging them where they make sense to each other: creating a connection between past and present.”

Nesbit is an active participant in the STAA Covington Art Market, which takes place this Saturday at the Covington Trailhead. While booking for the art market, Nesbit also contacted Michelle Crumhorn at Heritage Bank of St. Tammany, a strong supporter of local arts and music.
Artist Statement: The components that create industrial objects and organic structures are not as far apart from each other as one might think. I am interested in searching for the values of which are similar, and creating a visual formula to make a compromise between the industrial and the natural. My body of work is the outcome of creating a fantasied idea of making peace with nature and the industrial world we live in: warping processed inorganic goods into forms that appear raw.

This Week in Downtown Covington

Published by:

Sunset at the Landing takes place this Friday evening at Columbia Street Landing. The free concert series is brought to you by the City of Covington, the Covington Farmer’s Market and Heritage Bank of St. Tammany. This month’s concert features Noel Tannen and the Filthy No-No’s followed by the Chris Lenox Group.

Noelle and The Filthy No-Nos are a New York based band whose sound is a synthesis of Soul, Jazz and a touch of Rock and Roll. Noelle Tannen’s eclectic vocal approach defies any single standard, ranging from delightfully innocent to aggressively ragged. In turn, her band meets the demands of such acoustic versatility. Delivering a satisfying oomph of harmonic complexity and rhythmic articulation to support the delivery of a neo-sirens song. Noelle’s current base of operations is New Orleans.

Chris Lenox is a member of Toonces and a solo recording artist on Bubble Bath Records. Previous projects include The Consortium of Genius, Rik Slave and The Phantoms and the Bloomin’ Onions. The Chris Lenox Group is Jon Arceneaux on Drums, Rex Gregory on Keyboards and Sax, Chris Lenox with Guitar and Vocals and Owen Pascual on Bass.
