On Wednesday, November 16, I attended Lynne Cochran's art show at the J.W. Marriot New Orleans located at 614 Canal Street. It was the second art show I've attended in the space. The show was up only for that one night.

In addition to the Tribute Wall, the West Bank Art Guild had an art show on display on the first floor. Two of our artists sat with the screens on a rotating basis. Natural light illuminated the space from skylight above.
After all the formalities were over the artists and their guests enjoyed refreshments. The participating artists were congratulated with a complementary calendar that included images from the Tribute Wall. A framed list, of contributing artists, was on display as well.

Finally came the time to take down the paper the hid the wall of paintings. The artists posed in front of their works. After the ceremonies and photos, the artists and their guests enjoyed a reception in a side space.
The Esplanade and West Bank Art Guild coordinated the display of Louisiana themed artwork in honor of Louisiana's upcoming bicentennial celebration in 2012. Artists painted on wooden panels that were then mounted to a wall on the second floor right above the mall entrance to Target at The Esplanade.

The majority of the inside artwork hung in the dining room and front hall. A side room was designated for a special photography show. Even before I arrived, some art had already sold.
