Holy Cross shotgun hosts PhotoNOLA exhibits this weekend

Two exhibitions will be presented this weekend at the Art House on the Levee, located in New Orleans’ Holy Cross neighborhood of the Lower Ninth Ward, in connection with the 7th Annual PhotoNOLA, the city’s festival of photography.

Richard McCabe, photography curator at the Crescent City’s Ogden Museum of Southern Art, will exhibit his own work at the double-shotgun house in Holy Cross. Meanwhile, on the second side of the shotgun, a show curated by New Orleans artist Robert Tannen will feature work by the German photographer Constanze Flamme, taken on the Louisiana coast just after the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster, as well as photos of interiors by Jonathan Traviesa, photos of a mural making installation at the Art House and Rick Oliver’s photographic images of Tannen’s proposed Canal Street lighthouse.

McCabe and Traviesa are NOPA members.

The exhibit is set for 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1 and Sunday, Dec. 2, respectively. The Art House on the Levee is located at 4725 Dauphine St.

PhotoNOLA is an event coordinated by the Photo Alliance, in in partnership with galleries, museums and other venues citywide.
