“Anima Vestra” is on view now through March 27 in the Miriam Barranger Gallery at the St. Tammany Art Association, features large-scale drawings by north shore artist and conservationist, Anne London Zvejnieks.

Anne came to know the term “Anima Vestra” after recently having time to read the stacked journals holding up one corner of her studio for several years. Translated from Latin – your soul, the vital force, the feminine principle. This concept inspired new figure drawings exploring female energy and the connections humans have with animals and forces in nature.

Utilizing renaissance techniques, Anne applies four decades of studying anatomy, attending animal surgeries, and observing natural behaviors in the wild to create art that captures the true spirit, majesty, and emotional depth of our planet’s endangered species. She has used her evocative and empathetic artwork to help raise over a million dollars for conservation organizations, field research, and anti-poaching units across Africa.

Underpainting & Layers: Free Pastel Demo at St. Tammany Art Association

Published by:

The St. Tammany Art Association hosts a free demo this Saturday, January 23, with local artist Dawn Koetting. “Underpainting and Layers”, a demonstration exploring pastel techniques, is in conjunction with their current exhibit the Degas Pastel Society 18th Biennial National Exhibition. This exhibit is on display at the STAA Arthouse, 320 N. Columbia Street, through January 30th, 2021.

Due to attendance restrictions, space is limited for this free demo. Please click the link below to register for this event.

From St. Tammany Art Association:

Underpainting and Layers In Pastel with Dawn Koetting

Saturday, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, January 23, 2021

The demonstration will center around the different types of underpaintings used in pastel and how they visually affect the finished piece. Watercolor, pastel with mineral spirits, and pan pastel on a warm, neutral toned paper will be featured.

Dawn Koetting began painting in pastel 14 years ago. A recently retired veterinarian, she has enjoyed this time to continue pursuing her passion in pastel, taking a wide variety of workshops from nationally acclaimed artists. Her works have been exhibited at the National Arts Club in NYC and in the IAPS ( International Association of Pastel Societies ) biennial convention show, as well as at the Butler Museum of American Art in Youngstown, OH and the Lulu and Paul Hilliard Museum of Art in Lafayette, LA. She holds signature membership in the Degas Pastel Society and the Pastel Society of America.

“My art centers around bringing into view the simple beauty that surrounds us. Hectic, hurried lifestyles have people rushing past scenes and objects that have a certain beauty if one just takes the time to look. I enjoy painting the landscape en plein air ( on location) and am especially drawn to the patterns and colors of the agrarian landscape, the majestic live oaks, and the waterways meandering across our area. The repeating oval patterns of rusty tire rims and water lily leaves also seem to hold a special attraction and are seen in multiple works. Pastel is my main medium due to its direct application of almost pure pigment. My technique combines drawing and painting, layer upon layer, allowing the texture of the surface and that of the strokes of pigment to show through. I utilize different techniques of underpainting depending on subject and circumstance.”

“A Partial View: Drawings by Mary Jane Parker” Exhibit at St. Tammany Art Association

Published by:

“There is something about drawing with a soft pencil on a velvet-like surface that cannot be matched. No matter what is going on in my head or what stress I have in my life, touching pencil to paper soothes me. It is direct, low-tech and flows from within. Drawing is the foundation that all of my work is built on.

My recent drawings are created mostly with graphite and the marks are delicate and quiet. In these pieces I use intricately drawn patterns to suggest wallpaper, embroidery or domestic crafts that might have occupied a woman’s time in the day. Against these lovely, repetitive backgrounds, I situate a figure or part of the body in a tense or distressed pose with hair in disarray or toes flexed, interrupting the order of the drawn pattern.”

This body of work, “A Partial View”, is based on artist Mary Jane Parker’s interest in hysteria, a disease that many women were diagnosed with in the early 1900’s. There are many theories about exactly what hysteria was and why it predominantly afflicted women. The aspect of the disease that has most fascinated Parker, however, is how the medical professionals used it to restrict women who did not follow the rules and expectations of society. In researching this period in medical history, Parker stumbled upon a group of drawings by the doctor who was a mentor to Freud, Jean-Martin Charcot. His fascinating sketches depicted states of restlessness, anxiety, theatricality and stress–– emotions akin to those our current society fosters.

A native New Orleanian, Ms. Parker’s work is mixed media combining printmaking and painting techniques with glass and bronze sculpture.  She received her BFA from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in studio art and her MFA from Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois, in studio art with an emphasis in printmaking. Ms. Parker was the recipient of a Louisiana Division of the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship in 1990 and 2001 and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2006. She was also awarded a National Endowment for the Arts/Southern Arts Federation Award for Excellence in Works on Paper in 1990.  Ms. Parker used an NEA Independent Study Fellowship to travel along the pilgrimage route in France and Spain. In addition, she studied color woodcut in Florence, Italy using a Surdna Foundation Fellowship.


Ms. Parker has exhibited work nationally and internationally and is represented in New Orleans by Arthur Roger Gallery.  Currently Mary Jane serves on the board of the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans as the Visual Arts Coordinator. Ms. Parker is the chairperson of the visual arts department at the New Orleans Center for Creative Art. She is also a member of the teaching faculty.

“A Partial View: Drawings by Mary Jane Parker”, made possible, in part, by a generous donation from Catherine Deano.

The exhibit is on display at the St. Tammany Art Association, 320 N. Columbia Street, from October 10th – November 28th, 2020. The Arthouse hours are Tuesday – Friday, 10am-4pm; Saturday 11am-4pm.

Published by:

staa suzanne king string theorySuzanne King’s December 12th show at St. Tammany Art Association is entitled “String Theory: The Art of Manipulation.” Through the use of androgynous figures, the pieces reflect how we are affected by not only external forces, but also those within ourselves, and those pressures and energies that we cannot control yet choose to let manipulate us.

Local Artist Katie Burckel Wins “City of Covington” Award at Three Rivers Art Fest

Published by:

katie burckelLocal artist Katie Burckel received the “City of Covington” award on the second day of last weekend’s Three Rivers Art Festival, which took place along Columbia Street in Historic Downtown Covington.  We had an opportunity to catch up with Katie on Sunday afternoon:
“The Three Rivers Art Festival was everything I imagined and more.   I experienced many different reactions throughout the weekend. The best reaction however, was laughter.  I was not only giving people a visual experience, but they also got a kick out of the social commentary the art reveals.  I seemed to be one of the younger exhibitors there, and I would like to encourage young artists to be more open to the festival experience.  The staff, volunteers, fellow artists and the City of Covington are an impressive bunch, and I appreciate them all.”
Katie was born and raised in Covington, LA and attended St. Scholastica Academy for high school.  Awarded a full singing scholarship to Jones County Junior College, Katie then studied art at Southeastern Louisiana University.  Covington Weekly would like to congratulate Katie Burckel for receiving the City of Covington award!
Artist Statement: The juxtaposition of found objects with human figures allows the ironic social commentary to cause a chuckle.  Re-purposed items, often antiques, become miniature landscapes for imaginary conversations.

STAA Opens “Other Voices, Other Rooms” Saturday for White Linen Night

Published by:

STAA Roy Pfister other voices other rooms 8-12-15The St. Tammany Art Association presents a new exhibition “Other Voices, Other Rooms” opening Saturday, August 15 with a reception from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m during Covington White Linen Night.

The exhibit will feature the combination of period antiques and decorative accessories in concert with the impressionistic artwork of nationally recognized artist, Roy Pfister. Fine furniture of a different time and place carries the voices of the past into rooms accentuated with the vibrancy of paintings to create a harmony for life today. Through the vignettes assembled for the exhibit, the furniture of History Antiques & Interiors paired with the paintings of Pfister create a “voice” for the expression of the beauty of form and function. Live music provided by Timothy Achan Gates.

Roy Pfister’s art style has been likened to impressionistic realism with a traditional approach. Although he specializes in graphite, pastel and oil portraits, he has won many awards for his landscape paintings. Trained at Tulane University and New Orleans Academy of Art, Pfister studied under such noted instructors as John McCrady, Leonard Flettrich and John Ambrose. Most noted for his portraits of children, his reputation as an artist has grown nationally and his portraits and landscapes hang in the homes of many families throughout the United States and Europe.

Growing up, Lisa Wilson, owner of History Antiques & Interiors in Covington, LA and Charleston Antiques in Charleston, SC, was immersed in an environment of art and history by family members who taught her the love of antiques. She earned degrees in History and Art History from the University of Mississippi. After a career as a teacher, Lisa opened History Antiques and Interiors in 2012 with a vision to showcase the beauty of adding unique historical furniture and  antique accessories into modern home settings.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, call (985) 892-8650 or email

Overby Gallery Now Open on Florida Street

Published by:

Black Bayou by James Overby

Black Bayou by James Overby

James Overby is proud to announce the opening of The Overby Gallery at 529 N. Florida Street, offering original art, antiques and framing. Overby is an artist, primarily a painter, from north Louisiana who recently relocated to the Covington area. His primary focus in painting is to convey a reverence of nature in his canvasses and panels. Overby began painting lessons at the age of eleven, and his early influences were John James Audubon and Charles Marion Russell. North Louisiana offered many places to discover nature for Overby while growing up, and he is ready to explore and discover the natural bounty of southeastern Louisiana.

James holds a BFA in Graphic Design from LA Tech, but painting remains his favorite pursuit. Showings in Louisiana, Florida and Texas have yielded regional awards as well as recognition on a national and international level. His general style is Contemporary Realism, although recent works move from a strict representational approach to a more stylized expression, a recognition of the relevance in many styles and techniques. For Overby, painting is about as many things as there are styles, and it offers a kind of therapy for the soul. Whether you are working to achieve a vision, communicate visually, or just having fun, painting is a special thing to share with others.

The Overby Gallery can help clients select frames and mats to be produced by Gail Gullang of the Purple Pine Cone. The Overby Gallery will hold a Grand Opening on May 29. Open Tuesday – Saturday, call 985-888-1310 for more information.

Exhibit by Tanya Dischler Opening at Three Rivers Gallery for Spring for Art

Published by:

"Tanya Dischler: Unfinished Business on the Bayou" opens Saturday April 11th at Three Rivers Gallery

“Tanya Dischler: Unfinished Business on the Bayou” opens Saturday April 11th at Three Rivers Gallery

“The older I get, the more I grow to appreciate my childhood and the more I realize how unique it was. This is where I was born and raised.  It is the beginning of my story, it is who I am, where I came from and it is still taking me to places unknown. Those memories, sights, sounds, and smells keep pulling me back…like I have unfinished business and I welcome it, I embrace it. I think it will always be there calling me back and for that I am grateful.”   Tanya Dischler

This new series of artwork by award winning artist, “Tanya Dischler: Unfinished Business on the Bayou” began with her Burning Cane Series and is a continuation of a deep exploration of her roots. She is strongly bound to the land.  Having grown up with the freedom and daily adventures of country life, her memories are of sugar cane fields taller than she and memories as sharp and strong as the blades of the cane stalks she ran through as a child. These paintings are more than visual records; they are steeped in her experiences growing up with family, swimming in the Gulf, gathering pecans, and the plethora of farm animals and wild game here in Louisiana. These pieces are textured with natural patterns that bring to mind the Gulf of Mexico and the labyrinth of canals and bayous that travel through South Louisiana like veins infusing the land with life. These paintings by Dischler are a celebration of the impact of that life.

South Louisiana artist Tanya Dischler, originally from Franklin, grew up on Bayou Salé. She now resides in Mandeville, Louisiana.  She studied at the University of Southwestern Louisiana, Louisiana Tech University and various artist workshops throughout the United States, Mexico, France and Indonesia. She is widely collected both nationally and internationally.

“Unfinished Business” an exhibition featuring paintings by Tanya Dischler will be on view April 11th – May 2nd 2015 at Three Rivers Gallery, 333 E. Boston Street downtown Covington.
