Second Story Gallery 

July Gallery

The Second Story Gallery will host an opening reception for Something Old, Something New, an exhibition of works by members of the artists’ cooperative, on Saturday, July 13, from 6 to 9 p.m. The reception to meet the artists, a St. Claude Arts District Second Saturday event, is open to the public. The gallery, in the New Orleans Healing Center, 2372 St. Claude Ave., is open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. The show will run through Aug. 3.

Admission is free.

In Something Old, Something New, Second Story Gallery member artists juxtapose works from earlier in their careers with new works. Featured artists are Michael Alford, Ron Bennett, Amy Bryan, Belinda Flores-Shinshillas, Natori Green, Sara “Saharah” Hollis, Gina Laguna, Charles Lovell and Cynthia Ramirez.

The Second Story Gallery was founded in 2012, part of the post-Katrina explosion of art galleries and artists’ spaces in the St. Claude Arts District. Staple Goods, The Front, Good Children Gallery, Antenna, Parse, and Level Artist Collective are other artist collectives that showcase the city’s dynamic contemporary art scene.

The Second Story Gallery is currently seeking new members.
