Westwego Farmers Market

The night of Saturday, November 3rd, I went to see an art exhibit at the Westwego Farmers Market. I took some photos of the space near the parking lot. There were building facades that designated the original buildings of the city of Westwego.

Center Stage

From the center stage a musician entertained the exhibitors and visitors. People sat in the grass area in front of the stage. Others wandered around the exhibition.

The Exhibition

This is the first exhibit organized a group that calls themselves the Low Budget Collective. Members of the West Bank Art Guild were invited to participate. The photos below were taken I as I circled clockwise through the market buildings.


Before leaving I stopped to look at a mosaic. It was a map of the Mississippi River showing the location of Salaville ande Westwego. I took a few photos of parts of the mosaic.

Front Hall

At the Poydras Home Art Show, my work was located in a front hall. This year I played dots in concentric circles. The paintings turned out like bullseyes. Below are some photos of the art hanging in the front hall and the side room off the hall.

Side Room

Artwork from the show was also exhibited in a room off the front hall. Below are some shots from different corners. The hall is visible in a couple of the shots.

Dining Room and Porch Space

This past weekend was the 18th Annual Poydras Home Art Show. At midday I went to see where my art was hung this year. Here are some shots of rooms from the show.

Rebirth Brass Band

Earlier this week I met up with some friends who were in town. They wanted to see the Rebirth Brass Band performance at the Maple Leaf Bar. We arrived early and sat in the courtyard waiting for the band to play. Here are some photos from that night.

Art for Art's Sake

The first Saturday night in New Orleans is "Art for Art's Sake." It's the annual migration of art lovers from art gallery to art gallery with the final destination of a block party on Julia Street. Here are some night shots from that evening.

Cinema Reset at Night

After I had visited the galleries, I again passed the installation by Cinema Reset. The floodlights gave the area a different feel. By then, there were a lot more people on Julia Street.
