Everything I See Is New And Strange: Walter Anderson
August 2 – October 13, 2013
Walter Inglis Anderson’s distinctive and timeless works of the plants, animals, and people of the Mississippi Gulf Coast have placed him among the finest American painters of the 20th century. Everything I See Is New and Strange celebrates Anderson’s perspective as an artist, naturalist, and environmentalist.
August/September 2013 – January 2014
Lesley Dill’s work is characterized by the complex interweaving of a wide range of materials, image, and text. Her constructions are
suffused with emotional content. Language is a defining element in her work providing context and reference. This exhibition reveals a
poetic combination of verbal and visual forms and concepts. This exhibition is held in conjunction with the LSU School of Art+Design’s FY 2014 exploration of “malleable language.”
