The St. Tammany Art Association presents The Northshore Invitational, on view October 12-November 30, 2019 at the St. Tammany Art Association, 320 N. Columbia St. in downtown Covington.
Don Marshall, Executive Director of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, brings together some of Louisiana’s most notable artists in his return to the St. Tammany Art Association (STAA) as he curates the “Northshore Invitational”, a special Fall for Art exhibition.
Exhibiting artists are: Douglas Brewster, Jerry Cannon, Emery Clark, Jose Maria Cundin, George Dunbar, Alan Flattman, Rolland Golden, Mark Grote, John Hodge, Shirley Rabé Masinter, Bunny Matthews, Bernard Mattox, Francie Rich, Philip Sage, Jean Seidenberg, Liz Staub, Kathleen Trapolin, Hasmig Vartanian, Robert Warrens and Ed Whiteman.
While all of these artists had their start in New Orleans, the group spans a wide range of media, age, and backgrounds. Don Marshall covers the full scope of Louisiana artists and art history with this diverse group of nationally recognized artists.
An opening reception will be held on Saturday, October 12, 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM as the featured exhibit during Fall for Art.
All events are free and open to the public.
