Artist Talk & Student Series Launch

Please join us Thursday, September 23rd to hear our exhibiting artist, Brooke White, speak about her work.

Photographer Brooke White investigates the ways in which landscape and place are created and altered by travel, tourism, and agriculture. Border Crossing looks at the ways in which the act of travel alters our view of the landscape, as interpreted through the eyes of a white female traveler in East Africa, South America, Canada, and the United States.

Brooke uses paired images of animals and landscapes from her travels to investigate the role that interrupting borders (and the constant horizon) play in the lives of humans and animals. White received a 2009 Mississippi  Arts Commission Award for this work, and her videos have been exhibited internationally.

At her artist talk on September 23rd, we’ll hear about her current, ongoing work, Above and Below, which looks at the Southern Louisiana coastline following the BP oil spill.

Meet Brooke and discuss her work on September 23rd, 7 – 8 p.m.

And before the artist talk…

Our first session of the high school Student Series will be held on September 23rd from 4 – 5:30 p.m. This first session will be “Drawing from Observation” and headed by guest instructor Bill Evans. For more information on attending the Student Series, please give us a call, email us, or check out the Student Series Page.
