STAA Opening Reception for A Partial View: Drawings by Mary Jane Parker

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

A new exhibit, “A Partial View: Drawings by Mary Jane Parker” will be on display October 10 – November 28. The exhibit is made possible, in part by the generous support of Catherine Deano. The exhibit features mostly graphite drawings that explore the artist’s interest in hysteria, a disease that many women were diagnosed with in the early 1900’s. The pieces incorporate delicate, intricate patterns with repetitive backgrounds against a figure or body part situated in a tense or distressed pose. The works reflects the artist’s exploration of the many theories about exactly what hysteria was and how it was used to restrict women who did not follow the rules and exceptions of society at the time.

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.

An opening reception for “A Partial View: Drawings by Mary Jane Parker” will be held Saturday October 10th from 6-9 pm during Fall for Art.

Things To Do In Downtown Covington

Published by:

You don’t have to look very far to find something to do in Covington’s St. John Historic District.  For a self-guided walking tour, just stroll down Columbia Street and New Hampshire Streets and look for the kiosks that show an historical perspective from the point where you are.

The Covington Trailhead is also home to the Trailhead Museum, where you can find more historical information about Covington, as well as a locally-produced short film.

The Covington Trailhead and Museum is located at 419 N. New Hampshire Street.

The Tammany Trace runs right through the trailhead, a biking trail converted from the old railroad line that ran through Covington.  Brooks’ Bike Shop is located on the Tammany Trace, across from the Covington Trailhead.  Brooks’ Bike Shop features convenient online rentals, as well as repairs and sales of new and used bicycles and accessories.  Brooks’ also rents kayaks and is your stop for outdoor recreation in downtown Covington.
