ART SHOW, GATHERING AND BODY PAINTING EVENT, INTRODUCING ARTIST CARRIE BEENE PREVIOUSLY WORKING IN NYC AND THE ISLAND OF HAITI.
The exhibition is entitled Night and Day named after one of the last paintings done by Carrie Beene in the East Village of NYC in 1988. The show, which runs from April 8th to May 6th, is a culmination of many years of travel and experimentation coming to rest in the culturallyrich city of New Orleans. Brash forms interplay on her canvases both figuratively and in the abstract inspired by intimate locations in NYC, Europe and many years spent in the Caribbean.
The show will consist of a minimum of 30 pieces including large canvases and mixed media on paper with Carrie’s rare and unique style of working with powdered pigment directly on the surface of canvas/paper. There will also be
photography of past body/art painting with a not to be missed live body painting event as part of the opening night by New Orleans own Craig Tracy starting at 6:30
The show will be held in the Second Story Gallery located in the beautiful New Orleans Healing Center. The Gallery is a cooperative of artists working together to create a warm and dynamic space to gather and view the works of artists from different walks of life with quite different approaches. It is an integral part of the St Claude Arts District and a true icon of the New Orleans Bywater neighborhood.
Carrie Beene graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute, is currently a professor at the School of Visual Arts MPS Digital Photography Department in NYC and is the Author of Real Retouching (Taylor and Francis)
Carrie lives and works in New Orleans, Louisiana.
