Fine Art News: Mardi Gras Watching 6 from the Metal Series at the Burden Horticultural Society’s 2017 National Art Exhibition, Brush with Burden, in the Botanic Gardens at Burden, Baton Rouge, LA, March 12 to 19th, 2017

Mardi Gras Watching 6 is an arresting piece from my Metal series, an exploration of flame and light on metal.

The piece was accepted into Brush with Burden, the 2017 National Art Exhibition conducted by the Burden Horticultural Society. The theme was Southern Sights, and the jurors were artists and photographers, C.C. Lockwood, Linda M. Medine, and David Humphreys.

The Burden Horticultural Society is a non-profit organization which supports the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden. These gardens, part of the Burden Museum and Gardens, a 440 acre green space in Baton Rouge under the stewardship of LSU, are promoted as one of the city’s and state’s greatest treasures.

The exhibition is from March 12th to the 19th, at the Ione Burden Conference Center, Burden Museum and Gardens, 4560 Essen Lane, Baton Rouge, LA. Exhibition hours are March 13th to March 18th, 10am to 4pm; and, March 12th and 19th, 1pm to 4pm.
