NOPA member Richard Sexton will be hosting an open studio on the evening of Thursday, April 12, from 4:30 to 8 p.m.. His temporary studio and site of the event is 113 Lavergne Street in the Crescent City’s Algiers Point area, three short blocks from the Algiers Ferry’s West Bank landing.
Sexton noted that he is starting the event a bit early to avoid the worst of rush hour traffic on the Crescent City Connection, and closing a bit later for those enjoying the first day of the city’s popular French Quarter Festival.
The studio is located only three short blocks from the Algiers Ferry’s West Bank landing.
The open studio is being held in celebration of the following, all of which feature Sexton photographs from New Orleans and the surrounding region:
- 2012 reissues of “New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence” and “Vestiges of Grandeur: The Plantations of Louisiana’s River Road.“
- The fall 2011 publication of the Sydney and Walda Bestoff Sculpture Garden, by Scala Publishers, in association with the New Orleans Museum of Art. (Miranda Lash, editor.)
- A sneak preview of new work from the forthcoming “New Roads and Old Rivers: Louisiana’s Pointe Coupée Parish,” due this fall from LSU Press. (Text by Randy Harelson, with Brian Costello.)
