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.

Chasing the Light: An Exhibition of Artwork by Mary Monk at Three Rivers Gallery Opening Saturday

Published by:

“Painting En Plein Air has been a wonder-filled lesson in truth for me. The color and light are never what you would expect.  It is full of variations that are continually exciting to experience and paint.” Mary Monk

Mary Monk Exhibit Three Rivers GalleryChasing the Light is a collection of luminous landscape paintings that capture the extraordinary effects of the transient moments between day and night. These contemporary paintings record the artist’s impression of the most challenging times of day for plein air artists to capture.

This exhibition celebrates the deeply emotional and moving light that begins and ends our days. These ephemeral moments have fascinated artists for centuries, challenging them to capture accurately the fleeting impressions of transitory light effects.  Working en plein air, Monk is well known for her love of light. Seeking to capture those brief moments that define our daily life experience, these sunrises and sunsets that are recorded in the artists hand emphasize the intrinsic value of time. They show us their truth, allowing others to view the significance of the passing of time and its delicate and fugitive beauty.

Mary Monk has been an award winning professional artist for over twenty years. Her work can be found in a myriad of public and private art collections. She is a member of the Degas Pastel Society, the Pastel Society of America and the St. Tammany Pastel Society. Mary Monk grew up in New Orleans but has been living in Abita Springs with her husband and four children for the past twenty years.

Chasing the Light: New Artwork by Mary Monk will be on display from September 13th through October 4th, with an opening reception Saturday September 13th in conjunction with Covington’s Second Saturday Art Stroll.

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.

Ferrous & Flora: A Vision via the 19th Century Photographic Process of Wet Plate Ambrotype, New Artwork by Robert Dutruch at Three Rivers Gallery

Published by:

Ferrous & Flora: A Vision via the 19th Century Photographic Process of Wet Plate Ambrotype, New Artwork by Robert Dutruch at Three River's Gallery“Ferrous and Flora represents the hard and cold versus soft and delicate; one forged by the earth the other cultivated by nature. Both arise from Mother Earth to occupy opposite ends of the spectrum. My goal for this project is to examine the visual nuances of these seemingly different entities; to explore and discover their similarities through the 19th century imaging process of wet plate collodion ambrotype.” – Robert Dutruch

The artworks of Robert Dutruch are visually profound images full of mystery and ageless beauty. His one of a kind collodion tintypes and ambrotypes represent a provocative glimpse of modernity through the looking glass of the past. He uses this 19th century process steeped in history as a method of circumventing the digital age, stepping back from the rush and instant gratification of our time.

Ferrous and Flora is on view from May 10th to June 7th. An opening reception with the artist will be held Saturday, May 10th from 6 – 9 pm at Three Rivers Gallery, 333 E. Boston Street, downtown Covington.

“Southern Colors: Exhibition Of New Work By Rhea Gary” Opening At Three Rivers Gallery Saturday March 8th

Published by:

"And There Was Evening" by Rhea Gary

“And There Was Evening” by Rhea Gary

“My interest is not in the nuances of the landscape, but in using color for an emotional response that creates a joyful statement about the place. The paintings are filled with emotion, excitement, and energy. It is the vibrant color and light in the paintings that reflect the energy of the ever present heat and richness of nature that surrounds me.”

– Rhea Gary

The artworks of Rhea Gary are colorful celebrations of the Louisiana Landscape. Her dramatic paintings are filled with mood and colors that reflect her passionate response to the beauty that abounds here. Her brush strokes mimic the excitement and energy she feels as she captures the beauty she sees in the wetlands. Louisiana’s haunting swamps and bayous are filled with inspiration for this local artist. Her love of our vanishing wetlands prompted her to develop a project called Marsh Mission, in collaboration with C.C. Lockwood. Their best-selling book “Marsh Mission: Capturing the Vanishing Wetlands” documented their artistic journey through Louisiana’s waterways.

Rhea Gary is a Louisiana native, and award winning artist. She holds Bachelor of Science and Masters of Fine Arts degrees from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. She also studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. Her works are held in museum collections, in the Louisiana State Capitol, Louisiana Governor’s Mansion, Louisiana State University, and the American Embassies in Australia, Bahrain, Jordan, and Venezuela and in many individual and corporate collections. Her work has been published in several magazines including Louisiana Life, American Artist, Art & Antiques, and numerous regional journals. She has been featured on television on CBS Sunday Mornings, Delta Hands, and Louisiana Public Broadcasting.

In February 2010 she was Country Roads Magazine’s Readers Choice-Favorite Local Artist. In July 2011 she was named Louisiana Art Legend by Forum 35, an organization of young leaders.

Three Rivers Gallery Presents “In My Own Space” for Second Saturday Art Stroll

Published by:

"In My Own Space" Local Artist Peggy Hesse at Three Rivers Gallery, Downtown Covington

“In My Own Space” Local Artist Peggy Hesse at Three Rivers Gallery, Downtown Covington

Well known local artist Peggy Hesse has created a compelling new series entitled “In My Own Space”. Having recently moved to a new home just off the Tchefuncte River, the artist has been inspired to lovingly document her new environment. One cannot help but see the strong emotion expressed through vivid colors as she walks us through her new surroundings. This series marks an exciting change in her work. “Being surrounded by its natural beauty unleashed an outpouring of inspiration from the azalea bounded pathways of the woods to the water lily pond to the dark and tangled edges of the Rattlesnake branch off the Little Tchefuncte. Every season provides it own visual riches. The deeper I look, the more I see and try to depict of colors, textures, endless shapes transformed by the changing light. There is a feeling here of peace, quiet and daily celebration. That is what makes it my own space.”

Award winning artist Peggy Hesse is a graduate of Newcomb College and Tulane University Graduate School. She has worked most of her life in creative fields as artist, interior designer, renovator, builder, and teacher.

‘In My Own Space’, an exhibition of artwork by Peggy Hesse, will run from September 14 – October 5, 2013 at Three Rivers Art Gallery,  333 East Boston Street Covington, LA. Contact them by phone at 985-892-2811.

Second Saturday Art Stroll: An Evening of Art March 9th, 6-9 pm

Published by:

On the second Saturday of every month, coordinated art openings throughout Covington’s Cultural Arts District provide an excellent backdrop for an evening walk around town.

St. Tammany Art Association
“A Place for Art; The Art of Place – Covington 200”

STAA presents an exhibit commemorating the Bicentennial Celebration for the City of Covington. Eleven artists have been selected to participate based on quality of work and their interpretation of Covington. Each weekend during the exhibition, an event showcasing Covington’s history and culture will take place. Opening night is dedicated to artists with a special bicentennial flavor. Anticipation is high, and the event includes special guests and fanfare. During the month of March, look for a Literary flash event, a Sunday afternoon historical story-telling (including unknown facts about the founder of the STAA), and topping it all off, an evening honoring our indigenous founders with a performance by Grayhawk Perkins and his band.

Three Rivers Gallery
“Cloud Nine: A New Series by Harriet Blum”

Cloud Nine is inspired by the artist’s creative response to the ever changing and vast cloudscapes. This exciting new series from well-known local artist Harriet Blum explores a surprising and fresh perspective. The images draw in the viewer allowing them to appreciate the visual feast provided by nature unhindered by landmarks. Enjoy a chance to see through the artist’s eyes as she shows us there are opportunities everywhere for inspiration, and sometimes you just have to look up!

Cloud Nine is on display through April 9.
