BATON ROUGE, LA — Baton Rouge Gallery has been filled with the latest works from four of its artist members - Frankie Gould, April Hammock, Ross Jahnke and Tom Richard.
The four-person exhibition will be on display at BRG through August 1, 2013 with no admission charges during normal gallery hours (noon - 6:00 p.m., Tuesday – Sunday).
A ‘First Wednesday’ Opening Reception will be held at the gallery, located inside BREC’s historic City Park to celebrate the exhibition on July 3 from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. As always, ‘First Wednesday’ Opening Receptions are free and open to the public.
On Sunday, July 7, the gallery’s ARTiculate Artist Talk series will offer an intimate look at the inspirations, techniques and thoughts that led to the works featured in the gallery. Each artist will be on hand to discuss their work and answer questions from those in attendance. ARTiculate begins at 4:00 p.m. and is also free and open to the public.
Visitors to the exhibition will experience Gould’s colorful and whimsical look at the beasts that inhabit the zoo, Hammock’s acrylic allegorical look at how we constantly redefine our sense of self in the 21st century, Jahnke’s examination of the things we put into our mouths without noticing and Richard’s humorous juxtaposition of marshmallow Peeps, green M&M’s, bomb explosions and organizational theory diagrams.
